Soarin' Around The World, Anaheim

#6 of 75 in Fun & Games in Anaheim
Ride / Activity · Hidden Gem · Fun & Games
Deep in the Golden State, surrounded by the splendor of Mother Nature, Grizzly Peak Airfield awaits. Amid this community of majestic mountains, lush pine forests and other scenic wonders, you’re invited to head within a massive hangar—home to the California Aviators.

After exploring the storied history of aircrafts from the Wings of Fame and paying tribute to icons of aviation from the Legends of Flight, you’ll receive a quick briefing and then make your way to a large theater. Inside, you’ll quickly discover the latest in open-air flight technology!

As the lights dim, get ready for an experience like no other as you gracefully ascend 40 feet high and take your position in front of an 80-foot projection dome for a simulated flight around the world.

  • Great ride for everyone! (Well, unless you have a fear of heights...then...well...this ride isn't for you). The ride consists of 3 rows of "gliders" that have 3 gliders a piece: one towards the left, center, and right of the screen, but all of the seats have a great view. (But my personal favorite is the top/front and center glider. Right in the middle of the action and no feet dangling at the top) While the immersive video is great, the scents really make this ride amazing. Absolutely recommended.
  • Great ride. Fabulous photography. Did it twice even though I do not have a head for heights. You don't actually get more than a few feet off the ground but your eyes and the movie can lie to you. It's much tamer than the Star Tours ride in Tomorrow Land. The scenery is beautiful: well worth it.
