I just couldn't give this a ONE rating even if it deserves it. For sure, this is a waste of money... read more

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!

That was terrible. The ticket lady was rude and obviously hated her job. As for the 'ride', that was a joke!

This ride was a joke. Don't get me wrong, we had a ball on it but only because we followed our own advice and got well lubed before we went. It was freakin' hilarious after a couple of Margaritas!! Honestly, everyone should experience this ride...More

Wish we had never done this, waster $35.00 for family of 4 to be shaken around for about 2 minutes. Biggest waste of time/money ever.
