Features Of This Gatlinburg Attraction
- Earthquakes have been a scary point for a lot of people and some people never get to experience them. This is a ride that claims to provide you with the experience that you would have in an earthquake, but you need to realize this is a limited ride and you will not really get the best experience at times.
- A family-friendly attraction is something else you are going to like with this attraction as well. Normally, you will find that most of these attractions are going to really be family-friendly. So you do not have to worry about not being able to get to the attractions you are trying to go out and visit.
- Easy to access is something you will like about this location as well. While you may think this is going to be something you can get with any of the attractions you need to realize some of them are very difficult to access and here you will find the Parkway location makes it very easy for you to get to the location.
What I Enjoyed About The Attraction
Well, I will do my best to put a good spin on this. However, what I have found is the location is going to be one of those places that are very good to visit when the rain hits the town or you just want to duck into a place for a few minutes. Now, this is one of those things that is very nice because so many of the places in Gatlinburg are going to require you to be outside and this makes it easier for you to have a great trip because you do have a place to get out of the rain.
Great ride for the kids to go on is something else that I really liked with this ride compared to some of the others. While your kids can go on the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, if they have an adult ride with them it can be bad for some kids if they are scared of heights or do not like coasters. This is a ride that does not really have that type of a restriction and it will make it easier for you to have the trip you want because the kids can enjoy the ride as much as the adults.
Finally, for me, I viewed this ride more of a comedy because of how funny the ride is. Now, I do not take earthquakes lightly because those are very serious and unfortunately can easily lead to people getting killed. However, this ride does not do much to highlight those horrors and that is what makes the ride so funny because it is very easy for you to feel good about it and know you will not be injured at all.
My Dislikes About The Ride
The length of time the ride last is a major complaint. The ride is one that you are going to think would last for quite a few minutes or at least longer than it does. However, it has been reported that the ride is lasting only about five to ten minutes and that does not seem like it would be worth the cost of the trip. So you will want to make sure you know about the fact this ride is not going to last long and that can be a downer.
With the ride, you would expect the graphics and other features of the ride to be top of the line because of the ride length not being as long as what you would expect. However, what you will find is the ride is not really as long as what you would except and the graphics compared to what you can find in your living room, outside of the shaking seats and ride itself, may make you seem a little disenchanted on the ride.
Finally, the cost of the ride is going to be quite a bit higher than what you would expect. Since the cost is so much higher you may notice the disappointment you have in the ride is going to be even higher than what you thought it would be beforehand. So I would definitely suggest looking for a different ride if the price is a major concern.
My Final Thoughts On Earthquake The Ride
I have to say the ride is one that I am going to have to give a pass on for me. The ride is great for some people, but not for everyone and this is going to be something that I would find attractive for some people that have some kids and want to have them go on a ride that is nice and comfortable. I have to say, Earthquake the Ride is a ride that I do not find that alluring and definitely not something I will give another go to.
