An Exhilarating and Epic Adventure

Experience the Golden State like never before while "hang-gliding” over landscapes as varied as they are beautiful.

Feel like you're flying—and even smell what you're seeing as you skim rolling waves, powdery ski slopes, majestic redwood forests, fragrant orange groves and familiar landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge.

Live the California Dream
In the grand Disney tradition, Imagineers pulled out all the stops to make fantasy reality, bringing California to life using a 180-degree IMAX projection dome and aerially captured footage that reproduces the flight path of a hang-glider. Thrill as you're lifted 40 feet in the air, engulfed in the stunning panoramas, swept from one scenic locale to the next!

Entertainment, Right on Queue

As you ready for your aerial adventure, check out the interactive games you can play while in the standby line. State-of-the-art infrared technology allows you to participate in up to 5 different games on massive digital projection screens using your body.

The 5 Games
Train your bird for a race, collect treasures as you pilot a hot-air balloon, “pop the blobs” to reveal a picture underneath, or create a virtual landscape by moving mountains and planting seeds.

Relax and have a good time—your turn on Soarin’ will arrive before you know it!
