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...more

Ripley's Moving Theater was a waste of money, I rode it with my husband and 17 year old granddaughter, our glasses did not work and the whole thing was just a waste of money

This place is not worth the money. You get jerked around the same pattern to short lame movies. Save your money go elsewhere.

We didn't care for the movies themselves. They were showing a Santa one and an Aztec one and they were a little hard to follow. Was a fun ride though!

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

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
