Remember how in the early 2000s there was a sudden increase in 3D movies? Films for all age groups and in a variety of genres brought folks in with the thrilling concept of feeling as though you were a part of the action. If you thought those experiences were thrilling but not quite exciting enough, I have a feeling you’re going to especially love this latest technology even more: 4DX
VIDEOS BY INSPIRE MORE
The 4DX technology was made to give viewers an immersive, multi-sensory experience, and based on all of the videos I’ve seen online of people documenting what it was like for them, it looks like they’re succeeding! Take Joseppi Baggzelini, for example, who didn’t quite know what he was getting into.

So much goes into making these films an immersive experience. To enhance the feeling of what’s happening on screen, viewers can expect to experience a variety of sensory surprises.
This includes movement from their seats, especially during intense moments like a car chase, or environmental effects like fog, scent, snow, water, wind, and more.

Action films aren’t the only ones that get the 4DX treatment — some of these theaters have recently started to show “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” With Halloween quickly approaching, this seems like the perfect choice!
Khail on TikTok had the chance to go to a viewing early, and he had a blast!

As someone who can only handle tame rollercoasters, and not many of them at that, I think I’ll probably stick with regular movies. Still, I do find it genuinely fascinating and fun that this kind of immersive experience is even possible — and that I can experience them second-hand online!
