Hay, this may be a new and upcoming thing. Out of Visteon Theatre Seating comes the rumble seat. Not an amusement type ride but designed to give vibrations to the a movie goers seat. Just imagine how it would have felt during the T-Rex Roar in "Jurassic Park" and you've got the idea. This would be a very interesting experience. Say you have a row of those babies and charge a reserved price. Or maybe just spring on a non-suspecting public.

I tested these seats at ShoWest last year. They were interesting. But ultimatly it's the story that sells tickets not a gimmick. The cost and wiring each seat would bankrupt us.

wasn't this tried during the 70's with "Earthquake"? I beleive it was and was a flop.

In this version, they place a transducer under each seat. I would rather spend the money on seating upgrades.

It does open up possibilities. Sense-o-rama? Erotic movies could have a slippery little groping hand that pops out of the armrest. Sensors could track your heart/breath and jolt you into wakefulness or just at the height of the scary part.... like the guy with the knife jumping in Wait Until Dark? ...you'd get grabbed on the shoulder!

I'm with Mssr. Large!

GT, I seem to think for some reason that the "Earthquake" sense-o-round was done with speakers rather then vibration in the seats.

Ever seen "Matinee"? This could happen to you! BTW, Mike. Working on a prototype of the groping hand armrest. . . . . .

I wish I had seats wired for ejection for those idiots with laser pointers
