Shrek 4D at Universal Studios Florida
Shrek 4D at Universal Studios Florida

What is Shrek 4D?

Based on the classic Shrek films, this attraction takes place between the original movie and its sequel, Shrek 2 (call it Shrek 1.5). It is a standard 3D movie experience with 4D special effects – such as moving seats, water sprayers, air blasters, and lighting effects – that let you feel as if you’re a part of the on-screen action.


Where is Shrek 4D located?

In Production Central, which is in Universal Studios Florida.


Shrek 4D – height restrictions and other factors

There is no height requirement; has Express Pass access; both child swap and stationary seating are available. Open captioning is available on certain preshow monitors, and guests may remain seated in a standard wheelchair (those in ECVs will need to transfer to a wheelchair). Service animals and most medical devices are allowed.


Shrek 4D – what you wish you knew before you experienced it

A little bit about the Shrek movies, or, at least, a passing familiarity with the main characters – although the preshow will give you a brief synopsis.


How scary is Shrek 4D?

We would rank Shrek 4D two out of five dragons. Cartoonish peril and a bad-guy ghost might spook young children.



What was Shrek 4D’s opening date?

June 12, 2003


Shrek 4D – OI fun fact

There are actually two movie theaters – one for guests with Express Passes and one for those without. Each year, one theater is taken offline at the beginning of the summer through the fall to serve as a space for a Halloween Horror Nights haunted house.

If I could give this attraction a nevative 5 stars I would! They really should just close it and try again with something more up to date. The story line was not very good and the "4D" consists of some VERY ROUGH seat rattling and bouncing, and a few sprays of cool water. The graphics were as good as any basic 3D movie. I had to take my glasses off after about 5 minutes in and I'm not typically sensitive to any of these types of motion attractions. Unless you REALLY like what I have described, I would strongly recommend skipping this portion of USF.

I gave it one star b/c negative stars isn't an option. This attraction is pathetic. Please, spend your time doing other things at the park. Really, really sad and boring.

Not really much to this attraction. It's just a casual 3D movie. My family does watch the Shrek movies from time to time, but this can be found on Netflix pretty easily.

Really Outdated
Date Of Last Visit: 12/25/15

It's really outdated and definitely not worth if it if there's a wait. It's really just a seated ride, which may work for you if you're sensitive to motion. It's also nice if there's no ride and you just want to sit down for a bit inside. Other than that, it's really not anything special.

Fun but not worth a long wait

This is definitely a fund ride that most people will enjoy especially if you're a fan of Shrek. It may be bit scary for very young children (as with most rides) but it is a goofy, funny, good time. I'd say nothing over a thirty minute wait is worth it though.
