4.0 out of 5 stars Fun in 2D; GREAT in 3D November 10, 2001
Format:DVD
Although I did not see this when it was shown in IMAX theaters, I can just imaging how great this must have been on the huge screen, since it looks very impressive on my 53-inch screen! The basic scenario is that a spaceship lands a scouting party on Earth, but in a soon-to-be-opened high-technology theme park, not a major city. Assuming this to be representative of Earth culture, the landing party splits up and enters four of the pavilions and take the rides. These range from simulator rides (like Star Tours™) to looping coasters. This is CG animation taken at least one step beyond "Toy Story" where you become part of the action. When watched in 2D in a darkened room, you can feel the dips, drops, and hard turns in each of the rides. When watched in 3D (using an optional 3D system) you can even get a little queasy. My only complaint is that this is fairly short at just over 35 minutes; however, there is a "making of" featurette, the original trailer, and a gallery of pictures in 2D and 3D. Oh, and it features great 5:1 audio as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful effort! July 11, 2005
Format:DVD
O.k. look.....if you are watching or thinking of watching Alien Adventure in 2-D, you are really just wasting your time. This movie is enhanced 3Xfold by viewing it in 3d--and it is simply amazing!

Alien Adventure is the funnest DVD I own (and I have 100's), simply because of its amazing 3d effects.

Lights off, stereo sound cranked up, and with LCD glasses on, Alien Adventure is quite a crazy ride. Rollercoaster rides through the Arctic and Prehistoric times are simply spellbinding; as is also a GREAT trip through a child's bedroom filled with all sorts of toys, gadgets, and gizmos.

The story is not the point of Alien Adventure (although it is a simple fun tale), as it is all about showcasing the latest in computer animated and digital 3D.

A fantastic job all the way around! I can not wait for similar movies to be released!!

These 3d short movies are the future of home entertainment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in 2D July 4, 2005
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD because it was listed as an IMAX title, but it is also 3D if you buy the special glasses from the manufacturer(regular 3D glasses dont work with this title). The quality of the graphics are terrific, the plot is a little strange, but basically its aliens who invade and ride 4 virtual roller coasters at a futuristic theme park. The rides are pretty good and the concept and setting behind each coaster is unique. My kids love this DVD, and its worth the price!

(Buy it from the new & used section and you can get it for around $3.50 plus shipping)

3.0 out of 5 stars Engaging for kids, but adults too July 20, 2005
Format:DVD
I had viewed Alien Adventure on an HD channel I get and found it to be a total blast. I have no children and viewed it alone, but I know from expierence with nieces and a nephew that the younger set would enjoy watching the antics of the aliens visiting an unopened theme park and mistaking it for the way the whole planet earth is!

The animation is top quality, but the sharpness and clarity usually found in animation films is not of the best quality on the disk. I did not view the 3-D version since I did not have the equipment to do so. (You will need more than a pair of 3-D glasses)

The other con is it is way too short, only 33 minutes. I was eager for more and when viewed on TV it seemed longer.

All in all, though, a treat for young and old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dosen't work with shutter glasses. but is great anyway October 19, 2010
By Toybox
Format:DVD
I have this and a couple of other releases in large format which are (like this one) both 3D and 2D. If you are buying this with 3D in mind, you WILL be disappointed... However, in 2D you can STILL get lost in wonder for a while, making this an EXCELLENT buy. Picture this; A theme park ride in your home (it won't be in 3D though, but it won't really matter... It's THAT good) I look forward to future theme rides of this sort for home viewing where it actually IS in 3D...I would highly recommend that the people who created this go back and re-author it in side-by-side Blu Ray format, because I would buy it again.

1.0 out of 5 stars This 3D does NOT work on 3D TV's with shutter glasses September 27, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Amazon needs to get its act together on how it lists the "3D" DVDs! I purchased two IMAX large format 3D DVDs, and they don't work on my Samsung 3D TV with a Blu-Ray 3D DVD player.

Amazon needs to use the words "shutter glasses" to indicate the 3D DVDs that will actually work on the new TVs. 2011 is supposed to be a big year for 3D TV. Hopefully Netflix will do a better job than Amazon in how it lists their 3D DVDs.

This is not rocket science!!!

The seller did a great job and I received the movies very quickly. Until Amazon can do a better job labeling the 3D DVDs, they are wasting everyone's time and effort.

Not a happy camper. I will be sending the DVDs back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not meant for modern 3D televisions March 12, 2014
Format:DVD
These 3-D videos are based on an older technology and are not compatible with modern 3D televisions/players (they will still play, just not in 3D). Keep in mind these were made back in 2001, back when TV were still square shaped tubes. The videos themselves consists of ten animated 3D ride videos connected together with thin story of aliens who come to earth and somehow end up at an amusement park and riding a bunch of virtual roller coaster rides.

These virtual rides are all a product of a film company that makes (or did, not sure they are still around these days) these sort of rides for parks. Given that these were all made sometime before 2000, the animations lack a bit of the detail and sophistication that is possible with today's computers and software. Still, I think they are fun to watch in a historic way. My two favorites are the Arctic Adventure and the Kid Coaster.
