A 4D wildfire adventure

4D wildfire movie

Science North

Science North in Sudbury, Ontario north of Toronto is featuring a 25-minute “4D” film about fighting wildfires in Canada. Apparently the movie is in 3D, and the 4th dimension comes from the shaking of the seats, smoke, and water that hits the viewers. It looks like a lot of fun.

Science North’s description of the film:

Adrenaline rushes through your body as you witness the unfolding drama of Wildfires! A Firefighting Adventure in 4D. Feel the excitement as a ground crew, transported by helicopter into the remote wilderness, tries to contain the rapidly spreading fire Ride along with the Air Attack Officer as operations are directed from a seat high above the blaze. Be the co-pilot in a CL 415 water bomber as it undertakes the difficult and sometimes dangerous mission of controlling a major forest fire from the air, swooping down to pick up a load of water and dropping it at the centre of the action. Experience Wildfires! in the Science North Vale Cavern.

Below is a trailer:

Science North is an agency of the Government of Ontario, that “…creates and markets high quality science education and entertainment experiences which involve people in the relationship between science and everyday life.”
