Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (15mins)
The main difference of a 4-D movie from the a 3-D movie is that other than the stero and “pop-up” effect, one’s senses is immersively engaged. Get the hair-raising experience with the giantic centipede crawling past you, be immersed in the fragrance of the lemon grass, splashed by water and see the water bubble when in the deep sea, and feel the sudden poke when being attacked. At times, these sensation come at the least expected timing and the thrill level simply increased.
Extreme Log Ride (10mins)
Follow the thrilling journey the Super-Tree log, ride through deep caves, and dive into crocodile infested water to get transported to Himalamazon. This is truely exciting and enjoyable!
Step into the Wild West and get onto the riding motion saddles with motion-sensor pistol to take down the bandits, you immediatey find yourself as a cowboy/cowgirls. Took on a ful shoot-out session in 4-D and strive to be the top gunslinger. While I thought I might have scored badly, surprisingly, my score has came up under the top 5! Am just being lucky coz my batch of “cowboys” & “cowgirls” seems a bit confused on how to score, lol!
And of course, that’s not all! Ridhwan Azman, which most people know him as Ismail from the movie, “Ah Boys To Men”, performed live! His fans are just so crazy over him and sreamed non-stop through out!
Last but not least, had a great catch up with fellow bloggers, and took chance to have a few snap shots!
Together with Hong Peng and Karen Ashley.
