The movie in the beginning is extremely boring. You stand there and listen to Ron Howard explain the movie. Then you stand in a room for a few minutes while things blow up. Fire effects were good but all it is is fire everywhere. The end was a surprise but not that good. Very hot inside. Not worth waiting for.

This was the best show at the park. It is fun and not nearly a wait at all. I would recommend it to anyone.

I thought it was pretty cool. Being the little kid that I was while seeing this, I thought that being that close to that big of a fire was AWESOME. A neat little show. However, the lack of seating, and the crampness of the rooms did add to the un-likability factor.

Theres no place to sit in this show or ride or whatever u wanna call it, which kinda sux after a half hour wait, even tho its only a few minutes long. They basically cram a bunch of people into a tight space and then theres all these fire stunts thatre hot enough and close enough to redden your skin and scorch your hair, so unless this is your idea of "thrilling" youd be well advised to skip this one.

Backdraft is part show and part walk-through experience. Technically it works the same way as the Twister attraction does at Universal Florida. Three "rooms" make up this attraction, the first two in which you stand and watch video presentations of director Ron Howard and some of the actors explaining the making of the movie. These are interesting, but it is the third room where the real meat of the experience takes place. This is the chemical warehouse set from the Backdraft movie finale, and the audience stands just a few feet away from it as it explodes into a firestorm. It is very loud and very hot, but it is quite impressive to safely be so close to all that fire. There is an extra surprise at the very end that almost always startles first-timers! Fun to see!

I really enjoyed this attraction. I didnt see this movie either. The best part of course was the end. Be ready for a surprise though. Enjoy the heat!
