Soarin' at Epcot has delighted crowds at Epcot since 2005 and celebrated its 10th birthday this year. But, as with all long-standing and much-loved attractions at any of the Orlando parks, Soarin' has evolved over the years and will continue to do so when it shuts temporarily in January 2016.
Don't panic though, Soarin' is expected to re-open with a brand new ride film named ,'Soarin' Over the World', with updated film technology and an improved ride experience in the summer of 2016. The new film footage will include the experience of flying over the Great Wall of China, Monument Valley in Colorado, and the plains of Africa. To see a little more about how the new ride footage is coming together, watch the video below.
The official closure date for this attraction is January 4th, 2016 although an expected re-open date has not been stated as yet. Whatever date it re-opens, we're confident it will be worth waiting for!
