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 »

An amazing 3-D ride at Disney's Califoria Adventure, that is not only fun, but a pleasure to the senses (Movie-ride)
8 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My family bought special passes so we don't have to wait in long lines for short rides. Even if it was a short wait, the ride was still worth it.

"Soarin' Over California" is one of the best simulations I have ever experienced. You are strapped down to seats that lift several feet in the air. The ride has a huge screen (obviously) and uses it to create the breath-taking feeling of flying in mid-air. But, that's not all.

"Soarin' Over California" is also equipped with various things that make the ride such a pleasure to the senses. When you pass over the orange fields, you can smell the oranges. When you fly fast, you can feel the breeze.

If there is anything to do at Disney's California Adventure, this is it. Period.

Good: Big screen, amazing sights, good smells, can feel the breeze, moving seats that life over 40 feet in the air

Bad: There may be a long line.
