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.

This attraction was overpriced and really, really dumb. The "moving" chairs were jerky - not at all like I've experienced before. It also was grimy. Save your money!

Completely awful. $47 for a family of four with coupons. The motion of the ride wasn’t even in sync with the movies. The first movie was blurry. The 2nd movie was about Christmas and Santa Claus. Uh, hello, it’s April. The movies were completely cheesy. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!!

The seats are uncomfortable. The 2 short films are outdated. Total sensation of having been had. Do yourself a favor, don’t go.

Very bad, the seat movement doesn’t match what’s on screen, more importantly, we felt like you were watching the movie, not feeling like you’re part of it. When it was over, I actually felt bad for the attendant as I Thought he was going to get stoned by customers. Believe it or not...

We got the Ripley’s combination tickets and decided to try this out. In total, it lasts around 15 mins. The shows are nice but the seats jerk you around pretty hard. I personally didn’t think it was worth the money.
