It was a very short experience for the money, but it was loads of fun. Not only did my children enjoy it, my wife and I both had a headache from laughing.

"You can skip this one"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed February 09, 2019 NEW
Gatlinburg TN is a fun place with fun things to do. We tried Ripley’s Moving Theater. It’s ok; but expensive — $16 a person (we did not buy a package of Ripley attractions that would have reduced the cost per location). I believe little children could be scared by this attraction. If you have motion sickness, definitely skip this ride! In fairness to Ripley’s, a sign outside does warn of possible motion sickness. Overall, I don’t think this attraction is worth the money.

We bought our season passes in March 2018 and have been 4 time's between March and end of October. The same 2 movies have been playing since March they use to change them every few month's which was nice. I just looked 1/16/19 and the same 2 movies are still playing.If they want people to come back they need to change thing's up we will be coming end of Feb and are hoping to see something new.

This 5D movie theater is alright if you want to burn up about 30mins. Young kids will like it. $15 plus tax for admission is about par for this type of attraction.

We got a coupon for the aquarium and two attractions from the wonderful lady working the counter. I wish I could remember her name! The movies were great, and the motion felt like a roller coaster
