Get ready for an all-around immersive experience at your local Regal Cinema Theatre. Last weekend my family had the opportunity to experience Regal Cinema’s 4DX experience for Warner Brothers The LEGO Movie 2: The 2nd Part. My kids loved the film and the 4DX experience, it really brought the movie to life and made you feel as though you were in the film.
What is 4DX Experience?
4DX provides moviegoers with an immersive, multi-sensory experience, allowing the audience to connect with movies through motion, vibration, water, wind, snow, lightning, scents, and other special effects that enhance the visuals on-screen. Each 4DX auditorium incorporates motion-based seating synchronized with more than 20 different effects and optimized by a team of skilled editors, maximizing the feeling of immersion within the movie, beyond the limits of audio and video.
The LEGO Movie 2: The 2nd Part 4DX Review
The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part,” reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all-new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city. It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are now facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than it can be rebuilt.
This film paired with 4DX made my family feel like we were actually in the film, the seats tilt and move with the characters. There were certain parts of the movie where we would be blasted with air and even ‘punched’. Okay, it wasn’t a real punch but whenever a character would get hit, the chair would give you a quick nudge.
The film itself was a great follow up to the first LEGO Movie which my kids are huge fans of. In this film, you will see more of the relationships between each of the characters and how each of them grow individually.
The LEGO Movie 2 Regal Cinema 4DX Experience
After the arrival of a seemingly dangerous space invader who kidnaps Lucy, Batman and a few other characters. Emmit sets off to save his friends with Rex Danger Vest’s help. They set off to the Sis-tar system to save their friends from Queen WhateverIWouldNabe. With the 4DX experience, it felt as though we were helping to fight off the bad guys and also leaping to save our friends.
The Moral of the Story
I loved the overall moral of the story which I promise I won’t spoil for you. It was something I got to take home and say to my daughters who couldn’t wait to play with their LEGOS. If you are ready to laugh and dance in your seat, this is the film for you to see this weekend. With new characters and catchy songs that will get stuck in your head, this is the must-see film family film!

The LEGO Movie 2: The 2nd Part 4DX Experience
My family really loved the whole experience and are already wondering what film they can see next in 4DX. I highly encourage families to try this experience as it’s like the fully immersive rides you see at theme parks. My 13-year-old who has autism approved this film and said it wasn’t overwhelming for him (which I did worry about at first) and he loved how the lights in the theater flashed with the songs. Two thumbs up from my whole crew!
