From what I have heard from people who tried it, it is you either love it or you hate it, there is no in-between. I was one of the people who hated it, my experience was so bad I left halfway through movie, since the movie was pretty bad too (Suicide Squad). You are basically on a constant struggle to focus on the movie with all the distraction that’s happening around you.
- You keep getting lightly punched on your back whenever there’s an action scene
- There’s water squirting a lot which makes a complete mess (you can disable the water with a button)
- Heavy air turbulence pushes on your face (this one really ticked me off)
- Smell suddenly spews and the whole place smells weird
After going through all that how am I supposed to even focus on the movie itself? What’s worse is you pay 8 KD to go through it. The only part I enjoyed was that the chair maneuvers with the camera, it’s like you’re the cameraman recording the movie. If it was 5 KD with only seat maneuvering then I probably would have loved it.
On a sidenote, if you’re the type that has to go to the cinema with their parents so you just go to the VIP cinema with them to sleep, 4DX is not for you. Every time you try to sleep the chair will literally punch your back and wake you up, then pushes air on your face.
