"fun experience"
May, 2016
ive went on the 5D theater twice and its a nice alternative to some of the other attractions at the beach. the only negative thing i would say is it doesnt last very long. about 20 min.but still fun just wish for the cost they could either add one more show or make the two they show longer.

"Like being in a car accident!"
April, 2016
While we love the Ripley's museum, the 5D Moving Theater was TERRIBLE! The seats we're very hard and jerked violently from side to side so fast and hard that it actually Hurt you! I'm not kidding, it was very literally like getting assaulted. Such a shame because Wonderworks Myrtle Beach and the Ripley's in Niagara Falls do not hurt like this. There's something wrong here when you go for a fun experience and you literally end up sore afterwards. They need to have their engineers fix this or update the theater with a better system.
Tip: Painful, Hurts, Expensive for 10 minutes

"Ripley's 5D Experience!"

Reviewed November 26, 2016 NEW
My family and I had the chance to experience the Ripley's 5D Moving theater during our vacation in Myrtle Beach and we had such a great time. Although it was short, it was well worth the money mainly because of the experience. I would recommend this to others!

Good entertainment for the price. 3D part ruined the visual part but the wind blowing, snow falling, water spraying made it fun!

The teens wanted to do this as they did one in Gatlinburg. Very under whelming. They were not impressed and thought it was going to be more than it was based on the flyers. So now it is a been there done that scenario. Took them forever to get out (if you were waiting outside for them.)

I never would have thought to do this without the party I was with insisting we try it. I'm glad we did. We had a good time. The monkey fim was especially creative. The real snow on the Happy Feet movie was the icing on the cake.

Did not know there was a height requirement until we got there. So the gentleman running the show told us there were seats that didn't move that my daughter and I could sit in. So we decided to stay and watch the movie. The seats were in the very front down below all the other guests. We did get some of the 3-d effect and even some snowflakes but no water that I felt. I wish they would say when you buy the ticket that there is a height restriction. It may have just changed our mind.
