The Tokyo DisneySea theme park will open on Tuesday its new motion-simulator attraction “Soaring: Fantastic Flight,” in which guests feel as if they are traveling in the air.
It unveiled the attraction to the press on Wednesday.
The ride lasts about five minutes. Guests can see images of the pyramids in Egypt, the Great Wall of China and the savannah in Kenya on a large hemispherical screen. Winds blow and smells change along with the scenery. Guests feel as if they are actually flying through the sky through the images and movements of the ride.

Guests must be at least 1.02 meters or taller to experience “Soaring.”
