Please do not waste your time or money. The jerky squeaky seats were not in time with the movies - all they did was jerk you around. The 3-D movies were mostly not 3-D. The few minutes that were actually 3-D were poor quality. The...More

I'm a sucker for this type of attraction. The cinema shows short films presented in a way that attempts to make you feel like you are in the film's environment, via bursts of air and mist and movement of the seats. For the most part,...More

We tried the Great 4-D Movie Ride on our recent trip to Hawaii. The ride offers about ten different choices to select from. You sit in a movie seat that moves with the action on the screen and adds sensory effects such as sea spray,...More

We had originally wanted to snorkel at the nearby beach, but the seas were rough, overcast and windy, so we ended up at the Shops at Mauna Lani and went on the 4D Adventure Ride. This is a 4D simulated roller coaster ride going through...More

We gave each our kids $20 to buy souvenirs during our trip to Hawaii. Our 9 year old decided to spend his money on the ride at the back of the shop. They gave him a great deal on an all day pass and he...More

This is a small 24 seat 3D screen plus motion seat theater. There are about 10 different films to watch. Most are some form of animated thrill ride like roller coaster rides and last 10-15 minutes each. One real human one was a speed boat...More

We watched the ocean film or ride as they call it. Fun, but super short. Lasted only about 15 minutes at the most for $6. A bit pricey for the return.
