Soarin' is an interesting choice for adding to Epcot. The simulated hang glider is an innovative use of technology that fits in with Epcot, but the ride's film was conceived and filmed for Disney's California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort. Every scene depicted in the film is in California, which is a strangely restrictive topic for a park that otherwise celebrates a global future. Despite that, Soarin' is a crowd pleaser, using the giant screen projection and motion simulation to put riders into the scenes. To add to feeling, at key moments scents are piped in to augment what is seen on the screen.
