This is definitely a fund ride that most people will enjoy especially if you're a fan of Shrek. It may be bit scary for very young children (as with most rides) but it is a goofy, funny, good time. I'd say nothing over a thirty minute wait is worth it though.
This is a great family experience - it's perfect for all ages, and it's a great option if you want to relax from all the roller-coaster at the theme park.
You will enjoy this 4-D ride, definitely a must-see!
The plot of the show is really, really funny, interesting and exciting!
The queue is really good and funny too. This is a great experience for everyone!
great show for all ages, if you are a shrek fan you will love it, see it every year, you can't catch this version on video
A relatively average attraction, Shrek 4D follows a ten minute long adventure that takes place between Shrek 1 and 2, which won't be new at all to anyone who bought the Shrek 3D DVD in the UK, in which this title is included.
What does add to the experience, however, is a wide range of special effects - from blasts of air to squirts of waters a-top a motion base. This isn't Spiderman, though, expect to stay almost entirely stationery. There's also a fun pre-show that you can't see anywhere else - with three very special guests.
This ride can be a good escape from the Florida heat, but probably isn't worth more than a 20-30 minute queue unless your kids are Shrek obsessed!
This ride/show was a bit disappointing for me, but it is definitely worth seeing once (especially if you are looking for a way to get out of the heat!). It is family friendly and the seats shake which was kind of cool, but the queue is not as interactive as I would have liked.
