Society Culture Economy

Urayasu, Chiba Pref., July 17 (Jiji Press)--The Tokyo DisneySea theme park unveiled to the media on Wednesday its new flight motion-simulator attraction, Soaring: Fantastic Flight, due to open on Tuesday.

The indoor attraction takes guests, seated on an airplane-like ride, on a journey over famous landscapes of the world, including the pyramids of Egypt and the Great Wall of China, shown on a huge screen, while they experience the breezes and scents that match the various scenes.

The ride tilts and shakes to make those on board feel like they are actually flying.

Tokyo DisneySea invested some 18 billion yen to build the new attraction, which is based on Soarin' Around the World, a popular flight-themed attraction at Disney parks outside Japan.

The DisneySea attraction features an exclusive night view of Tokyo. The ride is about five minutes.
