I thought it had some really good effects... i was sitting at the edge so it was cool to feel the heat from the fire.

Earthquakes great. The effect of going through an 8.3 Earthquakes amazing & I loved how fire started to break out, the water was downpouring everywhere, & the pick-up truck & car were destroyed after the earthquake. The effects were all top notch.

I love this ride for reasons untold. The Earthquake effect is very real, and the way the water floods the place at the end is great. You get different visuals anywhere you sit The preshows get really old as they say everything word by word every single time. An awesome ride nonetheless!

This could really use an update, but it still is a very effective ride. I have never been in a real earthquake so I have no reference, but it seems pretty real to me. A little over the top, but Hollywood always is. On my first ride, the water didnt work so we went back later and it did and it changed things alot. This isnt the best ride out there, but it is alot of fun.

This is a fun universal classic. It does have some drawbacks like a very long pre-show and a relatively short ride. There are some decent fire and water effects overall a decent attraction.

I feel iffy about this ride. It was a good concept, but the actual ride experience wasnt too convincing. The best part was probably the flooding of the subway.

It would of been better, if the staff would have found a better way to accomadate the riders. The preshows are wayyyyyyyy to long, and the actual ride is wayyyyyyyy to short.

Pretty fun ride, though I dont remember it that well. It does show that it is an older ride, but it was still fun and some of the effects were sweet.

The ride is old, and you can tell. However, this was still a very fun ride, even though it wasnt very realistic. The pre-show was great, especially the part with the volunteers. The ride itself wasnt very convincing. You could tell that the other subway train wasnt going to hit you and you could tell that the truck was sliding down on a track. The water easily the best part of the ride. That water was insane, it just flooded in. That part was very exciting

This was pretty good. The part where the truck drops through the roof was just plain aweesome! However, You went through like three rooms of unnecesary informative stuff before you got on the actual ride. Also, I wish the tram actually moved instead of staying in that 1 room the whole time.
