    Enjoy Avengers D-Box Motion Simulator Ride Seats At Galaxy Theaters! Videos Included




    http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/d-box-motion-seats-move-into-two-more-galaxy-theatres-87803557.html


    What could be better than taking in the world's first film to feature an ensemle team of well known super comic book heroes? How about experiencing the Avengers in a special gyrating D-Box motion simulator theater seat at a local Galaxy theater complex for the bargain price of only $8 more? My understanding is that the D-BOX theater sections have seats that one can adjust to the intensity level they prefer. D-BOX motion code cinema system generates pitch, roll, vibrations (etc) that interacts with films for thrilling simulator enhanced movie experiences in traditional movie theater environments. Oh, the many wonders the future has in store for us!

    ^awful close to a commercial...

    BTW - the theatres at the ghost town aka Gardenwalk in Anaheim offer the $8 upcharge for this bringing the adult ticket to $19.50, enjoy.

    A cost factor of $19.50 would be well spent on a simulator experience of a riveting film like the Avengers, especially considering that most people live in areas that are not anywhere close to a major theme park such as Disneyland and Universal studios..

    We have a few theaters here in Calgary that have the D-Box, but I haven't tried them yet. Don't want to spill my drink with the chair moving all around.

    Whoo boy! These theaters are spreading like wildfire. I haven't thought about riding and drinking until now. You inspire me with the best ideas, Barbosa!

    It's like that bumper sticker: "Don't drink and drive; you might hit a bump and spill your drink."

    I tried it with The Hunger Games, I didn't feel it was worth the extra $, unfortunately. Cool in theory, less awesome in reality IMO.

    Perhaps I should use a designated D-Box driver while I drink.

    Perhaps the Avengers will be a more exciting movie to test it out on. Plus, the new technology is lilely to periodically improve.

    I know we have one here in Central CA, right in the town next to mine at the local outlet. Haven't tried it yet as I just haven't felt the need to pay the upcharge.

    You can find them at Galaxy Theaters in Atascadero, Glendale, Porterville, Riverbank and Tulare. If there is an Ultra star theater in your area, it might also have MFX motion seats.

    I'm going to watch the upcoming wild Snow White and the Huntsman flick soon!
