A guided tram tour shows you some movie-making insight on your way to Catastrophe Canyon, where you'll see a variety of practical fire, water and shaking effects in action.

Michael Weissman
Highly embarrassing. I can't imagine a time when anyone would think the cheesy video they play would be considered good. The one special effects area is also pretty un believable (I mean that in a bad way) but was entertaining enough, if you didn't have to sit through a 20-30 minute slow drive to get there and back.
Amy Tucker
There are quite long stretches where there is nothing to see and barely anything interesting in the video. Catastrophe Canyon is always a good time, and the Reign of Fire bit was ok. Very few props and vehicles from very few films. Overall, quite the snooze.
Ian Robinson
Pretty awful and an embarrassment to Disney. The "Catasrophe Canyon" bit (as originally done in Orlando) is great but the "Reign of Fire" part is baffling at best, pointless at worst. The long ride between both set-pieces is dull unless you're a fan of Dinotopia and seeing as they've never even made films at this park it all just seems a waste of space and time.

Bad just like the one in Hollywood Studios in Florida... 4/10
