Stationary seats are also available.

Opinion or personal story about the attraction:

We absolutely love this attraction. The first time I experienced it I hadn’t even seen the original movie but it really didn’t matter at all as there is a brief but succinct summary during the pre-show. We enjoy the whole of the ride, from the line to the pre-show (the piggies hehe) to the film itself. It always has us in fits of laughter. Donkey is our favourite. The last time we visited I was pregnant so sat on one of the non-moving seats. Although it was obviously not quite as fun without the bouncing up and down, it was still enjoyable so don’t be put off if you can’t use the movable seats. Go on, try it out!
