I admit I like this attraction but its still just a little better then average. There&#39.s no ride inside, you just walk through nice looking scenery that looks like Canada or Alaska. The detail is good inside. I love the walrus, he&#39.s very funny and playful. He&#39.s my favorite part of the show.

The ride is pretty good. It has its moments of fear and suprise and you do get bumped around alot. But after the 5th and 6th time, it gets old. The exhibits after the ride are more enteraining than the ride itself.

I am just going to rate the ride, although the exhibit is very good. I liked this as a stand alone ride. Unlike, most simulation rides that tend be child oriented with some kind of animated theme, this ride takes a more adult approach that I liked. The simulation is you in a vehicle heading to the arctic and of course you run into some problems that create some tension and toss your craft around a bit. I found the ride to be delightfully rough. However, for others on the ride who didnt secure their loose items properly, it lead to some carnage. I was sitting in the back row and items were rolling around for the whole simulator ride even falling down a few tiers to other rows. It lead to some socialization, after things were over, as everyone tried to figure out where their loose items ended up.

**realized I got in the wrong line and didnt actually ride the simulator. Ill update this if i do ride it, but just for now im rating the exibit**
The exhibit itself was really cool though (excuse the pun) and was very well done to look like an arctic station and underground.

Here is an instance of when an exhibit overshadows a ride. The simulator part of this ride is pretty weak, not anything special really, as the plotline is pretty predictable and the movement and effects are a bit limited. The actual exhibit, however, which features belugas, harbor seals, polar bears, and walruses, is quite neat, and is also "themed" quite nicely. Ride this for the average simulator, and then enjoy the very nice exhibit afterwards. The ride itself gets a 6, the exhibit an 8, so Ill average them and give it a 7.

This is a great ride, makes you feel like your in the Arctic. The polar bears are cool and the simulator ride is pretty good.

The simulator is fun to ride every once and a while. I usually walk around it and just see the exhibit. Its very cool to actually see polar life up in person. The animals are so beautiful. They did a great job on discriptions and theming.

I will admit that it has been a while since I have been there and have forgot quite a bit of the ride section of this exhibit, but the fact that I cant remember much of the ride after only a few months tells me that it wasnt that good. The real feature of the exhibit I think is the animals which are well presented. When you come off of the ride, you first see a tank of beluga whales which are very graceful in the water and pretty. There also it polar bears and walruses. My complaint about this is that I waited nearly an hour for this ride and exhibit which has a lack luster ride and only 8 animals. Seems like a little much when most other exhibits in the park you can walk right though without any wait. Try to sneak into the exhibit from the gift shop to skip the ride is my suggestion.

I give the ride a 7 and the exhibit afterwards a 9, and so that averages to an 8. A fun experience and a really cool (in more ways than one) animal exhibit. The simulator is rather tame as far as these things go.
