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

I went to this attraction with a group of family members. We were not impressed. The youngest in our group was in her 20s and the oldest in her late 50s. This was a waste of money for us. Will not be back.

Had a blast with this attraction. My 9 year old especially loved the angry birds show. The adults also enjoyed it. Wish it had been a little longer but overall it was fun.

This may have been fun 10 years ago. In the world of virtual reality this attraction is a waste of time and money. The chairs need padding on them, you get thrown around for 15 minutes...not enjoyable.

My son (12 years old) visited Ripley's 5D Moving Theater on our recent Myrtle Beach vacation, as part of a combo ticket we purchased at the Ripley's Aquarium. The theater provides you with 3D glasses and you are shown two 10 minute cartoon movies. We saw a Looney Tunes (Road Runner) and Angry Birds movies. The theater seats are in rows and look like amusement ride seats. You are buckled in and there are handle bars to hold onto. The cartoon movies are in 3D and are very lifelike, as you feel you are in the movie with things flying at you, etc. Also, each row of seats move throughout the movie. They tilt forward, back and "jerk" side to side, up down, etc. Also, Air is blown at you as well as a mist of water during certain parts of the movies. Movies themselves are funny and the movement of the seats makes it a very fun ride that "goes along with the movie". I highly recommend.

Two short cartoons, a chair that randomly throws you around (supposedly choreographed to what's happening on screen??) and then randomly get sprayed in the face with musty smelling water. If that sounds good to you then go. I'm not sure if it was the chair jerking around or the almost $60 for the four of us to go, but I now need a pillow to sit down! I wish there was a negative star..
