Overview

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!

Ripleys oddotorium was closed for renovation. Shaken, shaken, and shaken. It was a so so experience. My youngest liked it. I would not go back.

They offer non-moving seats which is perfect for our five year old to be able to participate. I've been coming here since I was a child and it truly just gets better each time. They switch the shows up enough that you can check it...More

What a joke! The content of the videos were so ridiculous. If you are a family looking for things to do, Skip this. Our 8-year-old liked it but the parents and the older kids did not! The transitions from scene to scene are elementary. The...More

My husband attended with 5 kids, our 2 sons and 3 cousins. He hated it and the kids loved it. However, it didn’t last very long. We probably wouldn’t go to this attraction again.

We went to this because we had prepaid for 3 attractions. The videos were very short with no real story to them. The chairs shake and air blows at you. This is a one and done kinda attraction

For what you get this is a fairly expensive attraction. It only lasts about 15 minutes and in that time you watch 2 short movies as the chairs rock and roll you through the different parts of the movies. There is a nozzle that sprays...More

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.
