  • Earthquake the Ride is a roadside attraction gem. There are very few retro "dark rides" left in the country and it should be valued for what it is. Gatlinburg is a unique little mountain town getaway....  more »
  • This is the single most thrilling, terrifying, incredible ride ever created. It has the most advanced ride system known to man, dating back from the year 1984. Walt Disney would wish he created this masterpiece if he was still living (RIP). 10/10, would pay another 33 bucks for another 2 minute ride. Wow.
  • The ride was outstanding! I never thought that a ride that only goes back and forth would be so exciting! However, the use of smoke is a bit overdone and can trigger asthma in some people. The staff were very welcoming and diligent. The scares were amazing as well. Outstanding ride with an excellent experience.
