It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Better strap on your seat belts for this seriously REAL-D 5D Moving Theater experience. Our state of the art theater with digital effects and motions seats will have you feeling like you’re in the movie! Bump, dip, and shake your way through our Roadhoggers and Winter Wipeout adventures. We advise expectant mothers and people with certain medical conditions not to ride this ride. Fun for a date night, or a trip with the entire family, but hold on tight!

We watched the Angry Birds and Looney Toons movies. They were good. Total they only lasted about 30 min. I thought this attraction was over priced and there were several times I thought the movie did match tuning of sounds and effects. Probably will pass...More

The moving theater is like a cross between a roller coaster and a 3D movie. It was fun for me, and for my 13-year-old, but my 8-year-old found it too jerky and hard to stay in his seat, so between the two movies he went...More

It's ok. Not worth full price, definitely look for deals if you plan to attend. It's overall just ok. It's jerky like others have said, but kids on the younger side will have a great time. Oh to be so easily entertained!

The Moving Theatre are seats that are programmed to move you in all directions, up and down and all around. Although the moving theatre was fun at times, it jerks you around like crazy and it gets to the point where it's not very enjoyable....More

Not a fan of this ride at all. It literally throws your body around. It’s hard to even enjoy the short movie because you are too busy trying to stop your head from hitting the side of the chair you are in. My middle son...More

We tried this attraction only because it was raining and we had to do some indoor stuff.I felt that we were just randomly being moved around in the seat.The synchro between the movements and the action on the screen was sadly missing😔.

I don't think so. They have the seats outside of the theater so you can get an idea of how big or small the seats are before paying.
