Soarin’ Over California
Disney’s California Adventure Park

Soarin' is an amazing simulator attraction that, true to its name, takes you over beautiful San Francisco and Los Angeles, swooping by picturesque locations in between. Imagine the excitement of viewing the Golden Gate Bridge, Yosemite National Park, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, Palm Springs, San Diego harbor and Malibu at dusk, from the comfort and safety of your mechanical lift seat at Disney California Adventure Park. You will be shown a film presentation on an 80-foot projection dome that highlights California’s aviation history. You really feel like you’re hang-gliding. The scent technology—meaning you actually smell the forest as you admire the redwoods—completes the exhilarating ride. Unlike a textbook, it’s a completely memorable way to learn the varied and beautiful landscapes and landmarks of California.
