"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.

A bit over priced for two, 5 minute films. Movement of the seats didn't really relate to the videos and were a bit rough as well.

I am a local to this town and have been curious if this attraction.... This ride offered a great 50% local discount. However, in my opinion Ripleys has failed with this ride. The screen was not synced the entire time with the screen....

It was two short films. The Roadrunner/Coyote and Angry Birds. It was great. Kids loved it! Before you ride make sure your spinal cord is in good condition. It jerks you back and forth. Ugh!!!!!!

Reviewed August 07, 2017 NEW
We saw two short films in 3D which were very cute. Sometimes it blows air or mist at you which is fun. What wasn't fun was the awful, jerking motions of the chairs. To call it "rough" does not even describe it!! Had I known the seats in the front row didn't move, I would've changed seats between the movies.
