Trivia

The man hitting the golf ball is NOT, Michael Eisner. He was not available that day of shooting. Professional stunt actors were used; skiers, surfers, rock climbers, golfers, and kayakers. See more »

Goofs

While flying over the orange groves on the first take, the camera clipped the tree line heading over towards the next set of groves. The final film shows you going over the trees but now there's a chunk missing from the top of the tree line. See more »

Quotes

Patrick, the Pre-Flight Instruction Officer: When the doors to your flight open, please take a seat and store all carry on items in the under seat compartment. This includes: Cameras, purses, hats, and of course... these little beauties.
[Patrick looks at a balding man wearing a Mickey Mouse ears hat, and the man takes off his hat to place it under his seat]

One of the Best Theme Park Rides EVER!
19 October 2007 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

The smells, the breathtaking scenery, the superb music all make Soain' one of the best rides in theme-park history.

After watching a pre-flight safety demonstration, guests are fitted into gliders and are then hoisted into the air and placed in-front a huge I-MAX screen.

I won't give it all away. You have to see it to believe it!

If you get a chance to visit Epcot or California, make Soarin' the first thing on your list.

Prepare for the ride of your lives!

Thanks for reading!
