It was great! The audience gets to participate and the 4D effects make it a lot of fun. I will be going again next year!

Movie experience was great! They even had an organist playing music from the movie as well as other well known spooky songs! It had several 4d effects, although I must admit I had expected more. Overall great movie!

The 4D was a great added experience to the movie. Besides the fact that it is a great movie, everything else was a bonus. My family enjoyed the movie experience.

The movie is a classic. The 3D visual effect isn't great but that is because the movie was not made with the idea of things flying at the viewer. The addition of captioned instructions for the viewer are fun to follow along, but they are a bit...continued

The movie in itself is great but the 4D effects are awesome. They have wind and fog machines and lights (and it snows at the end). I love going every year.

The movie itself in 3d was great! It looked much better than the original though b/c it wasn't made to be in 3d nothing came out at you. The picture simply had depth and looked more crisp. The added lights and effects on the sides were a cute...continued

This was a fantastic experience. It was my 9 year old daughter's first time viewing the movie and how could it have been more awesome? They go all out at the El Capitan. The air even smelled like gingerbread when we were "in" Christmas Town! So...continued

We've never been to the El Capitan, so it was helpful to know about parking at Hollywood and Highland complex across the street, but we did get stuck in the VIP line by accident rather than the general admission line down the street. Luckily, we...continued
