    Thrilling (but not scary) and inspiring aerial ride lifts you up, up, and away over various portions of California. Very convincing, and you have to admire the film direction and stunt timing.

    A great ride and the top row, center of the middle glider is best for the best immersive experience... It is so not over-rated!!!

    Want to sit in the front row (best row)? Just ask the cast member (if you're not randomly heading there already) and you can wait for the next group to get that coveted spot on this ride.

    A very tame ride that takes you through California landscape through an imax theatre and moving lifts. Wind and scents make it feel realistic and peaceful.

    Line isn't that long compared to other rides plus it moves fast. Enjoy air conditioning and a fun ride with cool views of CA!

    The front/top seat is NOT OVER RATED!!! It really is the best... Especially on the middle glider!

    Ask for the front row so you don't have other people's feet in your face. It's the sole place where you can avoid seeing edges of shoes as you "fly" over the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Karen De CastroMarch 11, 2011
    If you have a little that can't ride with you, get the Rider Switch Pass. You can switch with your partner watching the little one after the ride and they don't have to get in line.

    If your child is exactly 40" or slightly taller, be ready to have their height checked multiple times and don't get mad when the cast member asks. They're just doing their job.
  • Dianne H.

    It's worth it to wait for the front...so you don't have any dangling tootsies in your view. This ride is an incredible virtual travel experience that frees all limitations.

    Try to sit in the front row (position 1). Better view and worth it. Make sure you breath in deeply in this ride!

    Imagine you are flying in a hang glider. Now picture yourself soaring from one end to the other of the California that Walt Disney adored. Enjoy this awe-inspiring scenic tour of the Golden State Read more

    Most beautiful attraction at the resort! Always get a FASTPASS and if you have small children, ask about the rider switch pass.

    Soarin is a crowd pleaser! Fun, gentle, and hugely immersive.
  • ScottySauce

    One of the great things about the ride is how they pump in air so you experience the ride with the smells of the ocean, pine trees and even oranges.

    The single rider line is not always the fastest way to get on the ride, if there are a lot of single riders your wait could be longer than stand by.
  • Abizar A.

    good ride,don't miss it! try getting into row 1, else you will see some dangling feet above, and yea fastpass really helps :)

    Fun experience and cool effects. You can even smell the oranges during the movie!
  • Akiko I.

    Way better than I thought it would be. Really feels like a journey. Make sure to enjoy the pre-ride video starring Family Guy's Patrick Warburton.
  • Song L.
    Song LiOctober 6, 2015
    Row 2 is the best, more immersive and you are in the center of the screen.
  • Morgan C.

    They blast the sound at you. Earplugs helped with making it less painful, but it was so loud that it was still loud thru earplugs!
  • Eric S.
    Eric SchraderDecember 28, 2015
    Ask for row 1. Glider goes higher and view isn't obstructed by dangling shoes.

    Everyone loves this ride, but it puts me to sleep. In addition I fail to appreciate the fake pine and orange scent.

    One of THEE best rides at CA Adventure. Make sure to get a fastpass for it.
  • MarkMillerITPro ✔ ツ M.
    Always ask for Row 1 CENTER so you don't see people's feet dangling and get the full effect.
  • Amanda P.
    Amanda PeikAugust 24, 2011
    Fastpass this if you MUST ride it. It's a fantastic ride, but the regular queue is usually 45+ min long

  • Tim H.

    This ride is in desperate need of an update. The screen is dirty and the film prints are deteriorating. The ride mechanics felt really shakey, too, last time I rode it.
