Earthquake the Ride is a fun experience! It's worth the $8. My favorite part was when the ceiling caves in and you see and feel tons of rats crawling everywhere! The woman running it was nice. The only reason people give it such bad reviews is because they go expecting Universal Studios-style effects, and that's not what they get. Lower you expectations from Universal Studios-style effects to normal, and you'll have so much fun that you'll thinks about it for days!
