South Carolina State Museum graciously invited us to preview the two new 4D movies, Rio: The 4-D Experience and Planet Earth: Shallow Sea™ 4-D Experience. Both movies premiere this Saturday, August 8th. We had a blast!

If you’ve never been to a 4D movie, the movie is shown in 3D and is usually about 15 minutes long. The 4D experience cranks it up by adding extra sensory pizazz such as air blowing on you, different temperatures, smells, bubbles and “snow” being blown into the theater, your chair vibrating and more. You will laugh and jump and ooh and aah. Our first experience with 4D movies was last Christmas seeing Polar Express at the museum during WinterFest, and we loved it. (Read about that adventure here.)

The bubbles are coming!

The bubbles are coming!

 

Rio: The 4-D Experience was a hit! The little one enjoyed this the most. The music and colors are fun and vibrant. The scenes involving flying are very cool in 3D. It’s a cute movie. She giggled and jumped the entire 15 minutes. Then promptly asked if we could go back the next day. (The teenager jumped and laughed the whole time too, but he may not admit it.)

Planet Earth: Shallow Sea4-D Experience was my favorite of the two. The Planet Earth series by BBC is magnificent overall. The details and color they have filmed is just breathtaking. But to see it in 3D, so detailed, so seemingly close and alive is really something. It all just looks so real and right there! The 4D effects add a special touch to an already amazing film. I will give you a heads up that Shallow Sea has more than one spray effect built in. It’s not like you are on a log ride or anything, but you may want to leave your cell phone in your pocket.
Moooom! Loooookk!

Moooom! Loooookk!

I agree with the kids. Can we go back tomorrow? A big part of the fun for me at the 4D theatre and the planetarium at the South Carolina State Museum is watching the kids’ reactions to everything. I love seeing them laugh and gasp and get wide eyed and excited. Even the teenagers do it. I love creating memories like these.

For times and details, visit www.scmuseum.org. I recommend buying your tickets for any of the museum attractions ahead of time. It’s not uncommon for them to sell out hours before. Next week, we are finally going to check out Earth, Moon and Sun at the planetarium and spend some more time in the blockbuster exhibit BUGS! We only got to run through for a second tonight. I’ll let you know what we think!
