Soarin'

When I read the Sunday Scribblings prompt this week was SOAR.... It immediately brought back the memory of THE BEST ride I've ever experienced! (turn up volume!)

SOARIN'



This ride was an amazing thrill even for people like me who DON'T like thrill rides. You are only lifted into the air maybe 6 feet and then forward until you are over a huge concave movie screen which plays beautiful scenes of California. There is a canopy over head, so You only see the images on the screen. With your feet dangling you FEEL like you are REaLLY Soaring above California and ALL of its beauty. Your feet feel like they brush the tops of mountains and skim the pacific ocean. You actually feel the wind in your face! The seats subtly move as the scenes move to intensify the feeling of flight. That's Not all... When you are Soarin' over the orange groves you smell oranges! Over the Mountains, EVergreens! It's amazing! I felt like I was hang gliding.

If you go to Disney... You HAVE to experience this! If you HAVE experienced this, Please share it with me!


Please Click the soarin' link above to actually see the ride in action, my words can't even describe how cool this was.

I haven't been to Disnetland for many years. Your post gives a reason why Otto and I should go again.

I favored their huge roller coaster as I watched Dave scream like a girl. He thought that Soarin' was the best ride ever! I loved it too. ;)

That sounds fantastic. I've never been to Disney Land, but it's on my list of things to do.

um...no thanks...LOL
I went to something like that in Niagara falls ontario. You stand in front of a big screen and they play a rollercoaster video, people actually fell over in some parts, it was so real. Your ride sounds like a much more advanced version...:D
