The 7D DarkRide was really fun but it didn’t actually give anyone a scare. My sister and I did the carnival story and the zombies one, both were pretty fun.

The feeling of driving fast was great. The ride and fun was too short. The zombie were scary when they popped in screen up close.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your visit to the 7D Ride Experience. Next time give Carnival a try if you like scary rides.

This was a fun ride/game. I wish it was a little longer but it was still worth the visit. It will probably be more fun if you go with a larger group to make it more competitive.

we took our two young teens to this show, and it was OK, however way to short, and they expeted more interaction, etc, to me, it is a money maker for tourists.. too bad, as it was just such a neat idea, the maze was as well, wayyyy toooo short span of time, in and OUT, like BURGErs. so, as far as I am concerned, the kids enjoyed it, a bit, however they expected more, sorry, does not rate hi...
