What a waste. Friend and I were soooo disappointed. 2 films lasted MAYBE 20 minutes total. The "5D" effects were very lame. More shaking your chair around. Not once did I forget anything coming toward me as is usual in something like this.

We have visited this attraction several times over the years, but this one will be my last unless they quit having cartoons for the movies. The seats move with you and you get "snowed" on, but I prefer the movies with real trucks and roller...More

My wife and I are in our sixties and we had a great time. It's like taking a wild ride, but knowing it's all safe and secure. We really enjoyed it.

They claim 4D but all it does is move the seat sideways. The glasses didn’t work and it was a stupid show. At 13 a person you will feel completely ripped off

Nothing really spectacular. It’s a typical 5D movie type experience. I was thinking it would be a little more interactive, with water, heat, etc., but it wasn’t that much. Some snowflakes and a little water squirt. Mostly air blowing out. It wasn’t too rough, like...More

Like a roller coaster without the bugs! You really feel like you’re right there with the 3D glasses and moving chairs. All around fun!

We laughed and enjoyed ourselves. It was 2 movies, neither were very long. Best thing ever, no. Recommend for a short but good time, yes.

Been there once before and it was an awesome experience. The logging truck movie was really enjoyable and put you into the events that were happening. Great movies with the simulation, but then things changed... The Aztec movie was really hard to keep up with,...More

It sells it's self as a 5D experience. A movie theater meets a simulator. Truth is, it's doesn't do either in spectacular fashion. If you have some time or are waiting for a dinner reservation, stop in and give it a try. If you have...More

They change. I'm not sure of the schedule but usually every few months the movies change.

They have the seats outside to try it out before you pay so you can see if it works for you or not. I don't think they have an age restriction as long as they are accompanied by an adult. I have seen some as young as 5 or 6... More
