"So much fun"
February, 2017
It was a very short experience for the money, but it was loads of fun. Not only did my children enjoy it, my wife and I both had a headache from laughing.
Tip: Short, but a lot of fun.

Had a great time. Kids and adults alike! Definitely a must visit if you like 3D shows. It only lasted about 10 minutes but was fun

"Very herky-jerky, seats have no padding"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5

We are not high maintenance when it comes to attractions and we aren't wusses about rides, but my husband and I both agreed this was way too herky-jerky and it was uncomfortable. A little basic padding around your head, neck and shoulders would go a long way on this ride. My 4 year old likes rides but he got scared and I needed to take him out after the first show. My 9 year old, however loved it and talked about for an hour afterwards with no complaints. I had high hopes because of the cool growling dinosaur outside. We are a family that likes coasters and go-carts but this wasn't enjoyable for 3 out of 4.

Boring and kids did not enjoy it. Not even worth it with a coupon. Go down the street to the 7D place for a fraction of the price.

We went on this ride as it was part of a combo. The first movies was some monkey and the second was basically a portion of happy feet when they fall down the mountain and then he runs from the leopard seal. The ride was so over dramatic any bump in the movie and your tossed to the side. very jerky. the seats were small but they had handle that dug into our legs we still have bruises.
