You’ll want to fasten your seat belt on this multi-passenger glider as you’re lifted 40 feet into the air. You’ll be engulfed in this IMAX projection as the dome wraps 180 degrees around you.You will feel like you have been swooped up and Soarin’ towards the clouds with these spectacular California panoramas.

Want a bird’s-eye view of the PGA West golf tournament, coming right up, but beware of those pesky golf balls. Wrap up, as you soar above those extreme skiers and snowboarders, or float above some the wildest cowboys of the west riding on horseback as they race through the wilderness.

You’ll feel the wind in your hair, and smell the scent of orange groves, evergreens and the sea breeze, as your feet dangle free. Watch out for those cashing waves as you dip down so close to the Pacific Ocean, your toes almost get wet. Soar through the L.A. night sky and finish with a fantastic finale where fireworks burst into sensational colors around you.
