If I could give this attraction a nevative 5 stars I would! They really should just close it and try again with something more up to date. The story line was not very good and the "4D" consists of some VERY ROUGH seat rattling and bouncing, and a few sprays of cool water. The graphics were as good as any basic 3D movie. I had to take my glasses off after about 5 minutes in and I'm not typically sensitive to any of these types of motion attractions. Unless you REALLY like what I have described, I would strongly recommend skipping this portion of USF.

I gave it one star b/c negative stars isn't an option. This attraction is pathetic. Please, spend your time doing other things at the park. Really, really sad and boring.

Not really much to this attraction. It's just a casual 3D movie. My family does watch the Shrek movies from time to time, but this can be found on Netflix pretty easily.

Really Outdated

It's really outdated and definitely not worth if it if there's a wait. It's really just a seated ride, which may work for you if you're sensitive to motion. It's also nice if there's no ride and you just want to sit down for a bit inside. Other than that, it's really not anything special.

Fun but not worth a long wait

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.
