"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

The ride was cute but very rough and we weren't told that we would be thrown violently to the side. Much more for older children.

Do not waste your money on this. It was literally under ten minutes and the seats just shifted back and forth. They did not coordinate with the movie. You get a blast of water and puffs of air that smell moldy.

Part 3 of our Ripley's adventure and the only one the kids liked a little. The smell coming from the air puffs and water blown at you during the ride is nauseating. We all took showers after returning to the hotel. If you have any type of back or neck problems, do not go here. Long lines for 2 short cartoon features. Save your money and don't go.

I think this is more geared toward younger children. It wasn't as realistic as ones i had been to before but it was ok. Maybe they needed a different movie
