Soarin’ Over California is the newest ride addition to The Land pavilion at Disney’s Epcot. This hang-gliding simulator flies you over various landmarks of California. Many guests say that this is the most popular ride in the entire Walt Disney World theme park.
The attraction opened in 2005. Gentle tilting of the seats and wind effects create a simulated flying sensation. The three rows are designed to hold 87 guests. Two theaters double the capacity.
This popular ride uses state of the art technology to lift you 30 to 50 feet in the air while projecting panoramic images of the Golden State of California. The journey starts at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.
