Fodor's Review

Packed with manic energy, tongue-in-cheek comedy, and some wild effects, here's how this two-part story unfolds: Since all of the movie's stars are in rehab, a harried production assistant must cast park guests for various roles in another blockbuster disaster film—Mutha Earth. After this guest star cast is selected, everyone moves to the special-effects set where disaster-movie producer Frank Kincaid (Christopher Walken) magically appears and interacts with the production assistant to explain his vision of a blockbuster film. From here, selected "guest stars" (park guests) are put through some stunt-filled paces before everyone boards San Francisco–style trams for a short ride through a tunnel. When the trams park at a subway station, a two-minute, 8.3-Richter-scale tremor begins; there are collapsing ceilings, blackouts, explosions, fire, and a massive flood that comes at you from every angle. The crazy thing about it is you'd swear it was real! At the end of the

experience you get to see the hilarious "finished" film on the tram's monitors: the Mutha Earth trailer starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a heroic park ranger and your fellow guests as his co-stars. This ride isn't suitable for pregnant women or guests with heart, back, neck, or motion-sickness problems. For people with disabilities: If you use a standard-size wheelchair or can transfer to a ride vehicle, you can board this attraction. Service animals should not ride, sign language interpreters are available at some shows. Use Express Pass; otherwise, come early or late.
