Do not waste your money. Seriously. You move back and forth in one spot and rock around. Dumb. I cannot believe they are allowed to charge for this. Paid $30 for e of us and were completely disappointed.

We visited this attraction with my step son, age 12. It seemed a little more like a haunted house than an earthquake. It was definitely not what we expected.

Ok, so before going on our vacation July 2016, I read reviews about Earthquake The Ride. There were many reviews about how it was a waste of money, how people expected more out of it, it was overrated, and just not good. Well, I decided...More

I just couldn't give this a ONE rating even if it deserves it. For sure, this is a waste of money and should be $3.00 a person. But for novelty's sake, I had to give it 2 because I laughed the entire time. I laughed...More

Absolute waste of money ! 5 minutes of pure stupid wasted time ! It's a $40 expense for a family of 4.

This is not worth 9.00 per person. You sit in a car that moves 10 ft if that. The car rises up, down, and side to side. Go somewhere else, a complete waste of time and money

We got in for free and still it was HORRIBLE. Took my brother who hates thrill rides as a joke. He laughed his head off and how bad it was!
