The New Soarin’ Around the World:
The technology used to make Soarin’ Around The World means you will get even closer to some of the world’s wonders. Camera equipment was dangled below a helicopter as it flew between rock formations and across varied terrain. The Great Wall of China was filmed from the nose of an incredibly low-flying helicopter. Soarin’ Around The World has been shot with cameras that are at least 15 years newer than the ones that created the original film. The attraction itself now has upgraded screens and projection systems. New scents are also being introduced to make the places you will experience that much more thrilling.
The new version will take riders on a worldwide journey. Your feet will dangle above the Sydney Opera House, across Colorado’s Monument Valley, and even visit landmarks on each of the world’s continents. The new video will bring guests closer to majestic sights than they possibly could by visiting them.
