Soarin’ is a flight motion simulator attraction in the Future World section. The recent opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure bumped it down to #2, but this attraction is still one of Disney’s best.
The attraction uses a mechanical lift system to raise you high into the air and to simulate a hang-gliding flight. It also employs a 180-degree, 80-foot IMAX digital projection dome, and artificial wind and aromas to give you an authentic experience.
The journey begins high above the Swiss Alps and then soars past the polar bears of Greenland and sailboats in Australia’s Sydney Harbour. You will then swoop between elephants in Africa, past the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Egypt, and the Taj Mahal. After South America, you will look down upon Paris and its Eiffel Tower before returning to Epcot.
Soarin’ lets you experience some of the greatest natural and man-made wonders in the world, all presented in a stunning and thrilling way. We choose Soarin’ as the best Epcot attraction because this may very well be Epcot’s most unique and exhilarating ride (sorry Test Track). Soarin’ is not to be missed!
