So, what makes Ripley’s 5D? First off, the movie theater uses the newest 3D digital technology, so the images on the screen really jump out at you. This is the same software big budget 3D movies like Avatar and The Hobbit use to add depth to their films.
However, Ripley’s is a lot more than just 3D glasses. This movie theater also uses a state of the art motion simulator! As you watch the film, your seat will move up and down and side to side, so you will really feel like you’re part of the movie. Other special effects, including real wind and snow, will blur the line between reality and fiction.
