"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.

Never for one moment did I feel I was part of these films, which is what a ride like this is supposed to do. The movie was low grade 3D and the chair movements weren't synced to the film. It was also painful it was so jerky. I experience these rides at Universal and they were awesome but this just downright STUNK! AWFUL!!!!!

We did not see the show's that were advertised when we bought the tickets the same day at the aquarium. Do not ride this ride if you have back problems as you are jerked around. The ride lasted about 20 mins. It was $5 for each person when we bought tickets to go into the Aquarium. If you have never been on one of these rides it is pretty cool. If you have been on one like it at Disney World, it isn't worth it.

The first space movie had no story line whatsoever, that I could tell. The Santa story was better but barely. The seats were very jerky so much so that within the first 30 seconds I decided that it was better for me to hold my head up off the headrest. If you're seated up front, the snow is falling mostly behind you. Definitely not worth a second trip.
