This ride seemed neverending, but that wasn't too bad because it was pretty enjoyable. The moving theater cars are an interesting novelty. The animatronic scenes are pretty well done. There's not really much education about energy going on, however. This is a ride that needs a good postshow, I think, about currently relevant technologies. Children, despite the minimal education contact, will be annoyed that the ride is trying to teach them something, and will likely find it boring by token of being too long. Adults should just endure the film portions (which are fairly amusing until Ellen goes onto Jeopardy!) and wait for the theater cars to start moving, which is when the real good time starts.

Have you ever noticed how gigantic this building is? I bet its 3 million square feet. Sadly, the show staring Ellen and Bill Nye is too outdated and not that funny. I want to see new hosts for this attraction maybe Tom Hanks as the host. That would be more entertaining.

Fun when the cars are moving but the rest is just stupid

Educational guided show thats worth seeing. Ellen is funny and Bill Nye is also in it. The moving theater effect is cool and keeps your attention.

I was five when I first saw this show. I remember walking in, sitting down in some large pew-like seats in front of a screen, and a woman coming on (I didnt know who Ellen was yet). She talked for a while then went to sleep. Then, the awesomeness began. From what I remember, I could be wrong, but we started moving! The screen and the wall went away, revealing scenes from the age of dinosaurs, including a T Rex roaring at us! We moved forward, and went along a track which showed us all of these scenes. I dont remember what happened after that, and I dont seem to remember a man there either. But what I do remember was fun and excitement and laughs. I loved this ride. I sadly didnt get to go on it when I went on my latest trip, but the memories of this awesome ride still live on in my head. Dont miss it when you go!

I didnt know what to expect when I showed up for this one. If I had my way this attraction would have been lower on our to do list at Epcot, but democracy prevailed in my group of 3 and I was out voted. The moving seats took me by surprise. I liked that. Then they took me back in time to the age of dinosaurs which was definitely cool. The dinosaurs could use a rehab, though. The show, although long in duration, flowed well, covered a lot of educational material and most importantly was entertaining. Where else will you see Bill Nye, Ellen Degeneres, and Alex Trebek together in one movie. I loved the Jeopardy scene. Ellen Degeneres proves that she is consistently one of the best female comedians out there. A unique and entertaining experience and also a good break in the day, since it is close to an hour long. I guess democracy really can work!

I will give you a tip to do Epcot. Whenever you feel like coming back to the resort hotel to take a nap, go on this ride. You could sleep for 45 mins. Neat, isnt it. You cant sleep that long on Sound Dangerous.

I love Bill Nye and Ellen Degeneras. The ride seems a bit long but is still fun. They might need to start using the same robots as DINOSAUR in Animal Kingdom since these are getting a bit dated. A MUST SEE!

It is just too long. I think it is almost 45 minutes on the ride. The dinosaurs are fun to see though.

This is a very cool and educational ride about all types of energy. It starts with a movie. Afterwards, the whole theater moves, a section at a time, through a prehistoric world of dinosaurs. This is a very cool experience. They do a great job of making it seem like youre really back living among the dinosaurs. After the dinosaur part, theres another movie. My main problem with this ride is that theres really too much movie. I actually got bored waiting for the 2nd movie to end. Still, the dinosaur part makes up for it. So, the overall ride experience is very good.
