San Francisco certainly offers no end to entertainment options. A walk or bike across the Golden Gate Bridge is a must, and visiting the iconic neighborhoods of North Beach, the Mission and Chinatown can easily fill up a week-long vacation. But if the fog has given you a chill, or the kids are getting restless for some excitement, then head to Pier 39 and check out the indoor attraction 7D Experience.

The "ride" itself is a short but intense five minutes. Those five minutes are absolutely packed with as much action your senses can handle. The extra four dimensions to your 3-D experience can include the gusts of wind machines, scintillating flashes from strobe lights, and seismic shakes from your own rapid motion seat. This wild ride will not let you sit still!
In one of the more popular shows, "Zombies," visitors get their own laser blasters to blow away the creepy undead and compete with fellow visitors for the highest score. The interactivity is just one more dimension to keep you and the kids wild-eyed and happy.
Rides are available all day long, with a top capacity of 20 riders. Riders need to be 40 inches tall and meet all posted safety requirements.
If your family needs a little bit of a shake-up that the outdoors can't quite provide, then head to 7D Experience on Pier 39 for a complete, but reasonably friendly, assault of your senses. It's a five-minute stretch of zaniness we promise you'll never forget.
