Soarin' is a very unique motion simulator experience, but even if those turn you off read on because this one is different. You board a hang glider (it's just a chair you sit in) that will raise up in the air and gently move in sync with a movie that plays on a huge screen.

You will end up around (well, up to) 45 feet in the air, but will be belted in the entire time, so if heights are an issue this may not be for you. Once into flying position you're really just watching a movie on a giant screen. Your chair will move but it's pretty gentle and the range of motion is very limited. It's more of a gentle leaning forward or back motion than anything else.

The sensation of flying is unbelievably good because, in addition to the movie and gentle movements of the ride vehicle, there is wind gently blowing in your face along with various scents pumped in. A lot of people that dislike other motion simulation rides end up loving Soarin' and tolerate it just fine even. On the other hand, if you're highly susceptible to motion sickness then it's best you sit this one out. Better safe than barfing!
