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

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.

Made a quick stop in Myrtle Beach to use a coupon for the Ripley's attractions. Chose to visit the movie theater and it was pretty good. We had just finished a vacation at Disney World and Universal Studios so the 5D aspect is not as great as theirs but still good. Enjoyed the 2 movies we saw, they were fun and entertaining. The Happy Feet movie actually has real snow falling at several points during the ride so that was an pleasant surprise.

My husband and I went with our 3year old. She JUST made the height requirement so we decided to give it a try! Kristopher was our guide and he was FANTASTIC! We sat in the theater and discovered this included water and lots of movement! Haha, we didn't know what to expect. Our daughter LOVED the show and I was surprised by how 'zoned' into it as she was! I also noticed that Kristopher had kept a good eye on her the whole time to make sure the ride didn't cause her to panic. But this ride was the highlight of our day since we weren't expecting this ride to be as active as it was and...overall COOL!

This attraction was pretty good. It seemed to take a long time to get in and once inside the ride was very short, but while it lasted it was fun.
