Shrek 4-D reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Shrek 4-D, a 4d movie in Production Central at Universal Studios Florida.
Written by Robert Niles
A 3-D animated sequel to the original Shrek, with special in-theater effects. The story picks up as the ghost of Lord Farquaad pursues Princess Fiona and Shrek on the way to their honeymoon.
It's fun, but only a couple times. Repeated viewings make it boring. I now skip it whenever I go. However it is not to be missed for new timers. The motion seats are cool the first couple times, but annoying over time. Overall a 6-7 is right on the money. - Quentin Scruggs
It's one of the better attractions in the park the whole family can enjoy together. The main attraction is extremely well done and packs a nice adventure. The in theatre effects are good too, when they work, which is becoming an issue as this attraction ages. Still though a nice attraction worth your attention. - Manny Barron
The first time it was great. The second time it was good. The third time it was ok. And the forth time it was torture, just like Varquard wanted. Despicable Me makes this look so bad. Terminator makes this look bad. I want Hitchcock! 4/10 - Jaiden Cohen
Not a big Shrek fan, but this is an amusing 4D short. 7/10 - N B
Pretty fun! You get your 4D money's worth - Anthony Murphy
It's a pretty fun attraction but I wouldn't go out of your way to ride it. - Jeff Moon
The first 2 Shrek films where both smart and funny. This isn't. The gags are just lazy; many of them are just references to jokes in the films. The pacing is also an issue because the action is moving at such a speed that it is hard to tell what happening. It's not terrible, but it isn't any good either. 4/10 - Mark Doherty
We did after the the new Despicable me ride, with is superior in every way possible, but still a must for Shrek fans with a very entertaining pre show. - David Shaul
Once you've seen it once, that's it. A second visit makes you like it less. Maybe a show refresh for you every few years would be good. 5/10 - Dominick D
The worst 3-D show in Orlando. - Sean Huckel
We really enjoyed Shrek this year. They fixed the effects that weren't working last year and now it's as good as it was during the premier season. One of the most entertaining pre-shows in theme parkdom. - Rob Pastor
