Surprisingly moving, for an amusement park ride.
15 June 2003 | by (Orange County, CA) – See all my reviews

Soarin' over California, located at Disney's California Adventure, is surprisingly moving for an amusement park ride. It never fails to elicit applause as the ride ends. The audience is given the experience of riding a handglider over California scenery. You the rider sit in a dangling seat lifted 50 feet in the air in front of a giant movie screen. The Jerry Goldsmith score is very stirring. Easily the best experience at DCA.
