Marvel’s latest movie, “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” is already entertaining on its own. But add in moving seats and water being sprayed at you, and it basically becomes a theme park ride. 

That’s the gist of 4DX, a movie-viewing experience that’s not just 3D. The seats move during action sequences, water hits you in the face if characters in the movie go under water, scents are released throughout the theater to emulate smells in the movie, and so on. It pretty much tries to replicate the environment in the movie, and while it obviously can’t do that too closely without getting dangerous, it’s something worth trying.

I got to experience “Ant-Man and the Wasp” this way Thursday night at Regal Union Square Stadium 14 in New York. The movie was in 3D during my viewing, which, on top of 4DX, really put me in the movie in a way I hadn’t experienced before. 

Of course, there’s the money factor. But if you’re willing to shell out around $30 a ticket, 4DX is something I recommend moviegoers experience at least once.

Even Ant-Man himself Paul Rudd recommends it.

I took some photos before my viewing of the movie to give readers a better look at what they can look forward to:

Before walking into the theater, there’s this outside the door. I experienced all of these at least once during “Ant-Man and the Wasp” (except I think fog and lightning, although there were some trippy light-effects).

Travis Clark/Business Insider At first glance, it looks like a regular theater (this photo was taken from higher seats, so don’t worry, they’re not all that close to the screen).
