  • [Idea] Soarin over California 2.0

    Sorin over California is one of the few rides that have not been updated or completly change since California Adventure opened in 2001. Here are some ideas.

    The queue: It would mostly stay the same but with updated information and updated pictures.
    The Ride: Update everything inside the ride. That includes the sound system and of course but new screens up. The ride scenes would be the same but updated pictures. And in the final scene instead of bieng Disneyland at christmas time. It would be California Adventure during christmas time with the World of Color fountains in the background.

    I dont think they should "update" the pictures in the queue. Those are amazing pictures of aeronautical history.

    They are going to update is though. They are making a Soarin' over the World

      I think that they don't even need to make it Christmas time, if they brought the electric light parade on main street and had the WOC fountians/madTparty going a shot covering Disney California Adventure into Disneyland up to the fireworks would be really beautiful, with no Christmas necessary. But it still is fun seeing Its A Small World lit up, so who know maybe they could project on it to make it brighter for filming. It would be cool to have the pan cross paradise bay up and over into cars land then around tower, up to buena vista street than across the hub down main street and up the the fireworks.

        Same pictures? No. They need a new film entirely - not one with jump cuts that destroys the sense you are actually flying. Transitions, transitions, transitions!

          Sambo, I'm used to jump cuts, and I'd like Soarin' energy & money invested into making four new films that would rotate around the Disney parks after each hosts it's home film for three years: a Soarin' over the USA for WDW shot in the other 49 states, and a Soarin' Over Europe, Japan & China film in 3D for the other resorts. (One of the China films can be pirated from the other one.)

          If they are hang gliders and we want to cover hundreds of miles in a few minutes, jump cuts are the only option unless our vehicles have jets that soar up after each lower flyover. It would be educational to fly up so high we can see the whole state, country or
          (European) continent and impose map outlines along with place names on the area we are about to zoom down on. But I'd prefer sticking with jump cuts. Maybe have one film every day where the gliders crash for verisimilitude.

          P.S. Hey Disney World visitors, did you know that WDW's Soarin' is (except for a glimpse of Nevada in the Lake Tahoe skiing scene) shot entirely in California? Please do two things:
          1. Visit California to experience many of the actual places you soared over. Spend money here.
          2. Demand a "Soarin' Over the USA" at WDW so I have another reason to visit and spend $ in Florida.

            It takes little to zoom into a cloud or to nose up so the horizon is below screen. There are simple transition effects to make a semi-believeable flight. But sailing over a river and then BAM! you are on a snowy mountain detracts from the experience IMHO. The visual transition makes the moving of hundreds of miles believeable where a jump cut destroys believability. Jump cuts are in this environment - just lazy.

            I do see your point though.

                I feel like we won't see an update for Soarin for a couple of years. With the new additions to DCA it's bringing people who probably have never visited before. I think they should do a new movie in 3D. That would be amazing! I know the 3D thing is used a lot around the resort, but I've felt that of all the rides Soarin makes the most sense. The 3d glasses could be "goggles" for flight.

                  Right there with ya. The transitions are disjointed and could be done a lot better.

                  Probably just time for a new movie, anyways. It's a freakin' theater, this shouldn't involve a lot of retooling, just a new feature.

                    I would also like to see them give Soarin' a shot at 3D, I think it could nicely enhance the depth of the film, although I have no idea if converting it to a 3D format would be difficult or not. I don't know much about how the current system works for the film.

                    I personally don't want to see a Soarin' Over the World, I think that there are plenty of places in California that you can still showcase. How many different theaters are there? I know that there's a least two different ones. It would be nice if they could have different sequences of clips for the different screens so it wouldn't always be the exact same experience.

                        I've thought that before
                        i wonder if it would work at different angles and an inverted ominmax screen(the dome)

                          Soarin' over the world is just a rumor.

                          Though I'd be glad to see updates to the screens... tho the besides the bad screens I hope the imagery stays the same... besides the ending, I think they should do a fly over the resort, then zoom in towards DCA and finish at world of color!!

                              Soarin' Over the World would be just another jab at the already-declining California presence in California ​Adventure. All Soarin' needs is a little TLC, and it'll be back to good in no time.

                                Although, with the park's latest additions, I think that the California prescence is starting to increase rather than decline. Buena Vista Street is a lovely addition that really did bring a sense of California and its history to the park. And Cars Land, no matter how many times people say that it takes place in a state like Arizona and therefore doesn't coincide with the CA theme, does resemble the desert and roadside towns just over the mountains where I'm from and portrays a significant piece of Californian history and geography. I've always been amazed that you can travel from snowy mountains to the desert to the beach in the matter of several hours in California, and I love how that's now captured in the park. It's just the character tie-ins that kill it for me. I wish they could have focused more on car culture specific to California instead of purely focusing on the Cars franchise.

                                  Can't agree with you more about Buena Vista Street and Cars Land, I'm talking more along the lines of TLM and Bugs Land. I love both, but no matter how you view it, they don't fit the theme of California.

                                    I'd like to see it redone as a tribute to California's aviation history. You would still fly over some gorgeous California landscape, but the theme would be that you are flying with famous pilots. You can be there to witness early barnstomers, air circuses, the breaking of the sound barrier, the Spruce Goose, Hollywood stunt pilots, prototype aircraft such as the SR-71, the testing of the Space Shuttle Enterprise, and end with a flight through Disneyland (you could even have the Endevour flying over is you want, although Disneyland/DCA at night would provide a more dramatic end to the film). You can throw in small cameos from The Rocketeer, Dumbo, and Tinker Bell. This would become DCA's new thesis attraction now that Golden Dreams is gone.

                                      The Q needs to be redone...I think they can make it more interactive...with models and TV screen doing trivia and showing old video's of flights

                                      and also make it feel more like a airbase too and of course make the outside park indoor too
                                      Happy Halloween!!!

                                        My idea for Soarin' was to have several different options kinda like Star Tours. I would call it Soarin' Destinations. One ride you could fly over California, One ride you could fly over Florida, One ride over the World, I would do every Disney property as an option....plus you could virtually add any land. This ride has so much potential!!! Imagine riding 10 times and having 10 different experiences.
