4DX is a state-of-the-art technology developed by CJ 4DPlex that delivers an immersive multi-sensory cinematic experience.
4DX incorporates the onscreen visuals with synchronized motion and environmental effects such as wind, fog, rain, lighting, scents, snow, etc.to substantially enhance the overall cinema experience:
It is real 4D like you have never felt at all! And those sprays of waster really come at you like you are in a scene from the movie! It was awesome!
We saw the Peter Rabbit movie in the 4DX theater and it was a blast. Literally! We felt the wind in the bunnies faces along with them, jarring movements as they ran around the property, and sprays of mist when they got wet!
And the seats move constantly throughout. It actually reminded me of a theme park ride, the movements are that elaborate because 4DX motion chairs are equipped with 3 base movements of:
-heave (move up and down),
-roll (move left and right) and
-pitch (tilt forward and back) - which mimic onscreen actions such as flying and driving.
Additionally, they also have seat effects such as mist, face air, rain, back/bottom (vibration) and back and leg ticklers to maximize the feeling of immersion.
The movements can be jarring and if this were a more active movie, the seat movements may have been more dramatic and I might have had to sit on the stairs! But then again, I do not go on roller coasters. Some examples of movies that were available in 4DX were: Jurassic World, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Fast and the Furious 7, and Batman vs. Superman. Can you imagine the wild ride those movies would have provided!
I had no idea this technology was available, I am so happy the company found me! And this is not the priciest ticket at our NY movie theater, you might think a theme park type movie ride experience like this would cost double! And I am exhausted, I feel like I have been running around like a bunny rabbit for days!
And for a quick movie review, Peter Rabbit was terrific fun! The role of Peter Rabbit was perfect for James Corden, and everyone else was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole movie experience!
