Disney fans headed for Japan will have another reason to celebrate because a new flight simulator attraction, which will make visitors feel as if they are soaring over famous landmarks such as the Great Wall of China and the Egyptian pyramids will be opened to the public starting Tuesday (July 23) next week, as shared in a report by Japan Times.

The five-minute ride, which is aptly called “Soaring: Fantastic Flight”, will also zoom through natural wonders such as the African savannah and tropical seas. The ride tilts and shakes to make those on board feel like they are actually on flight in the open skies.

The new attraction was announced to the media last Wednesday (July 17) ahead of the launch.

For its latest offering, Tokyo DisneySea invested some JPY 18 billion to provide Tokyo guests a unique and memorable experience which  is based on Soarin’ Around the World, a popular flight-themed attraction at overseas Disney parks.

Furthermore, a new stage show titled Song of Mirage will also run from Tuesday. It will feature live performances by Mickey Mouse and his Disney friends. The characters go on an adventure, with projection mapping depicting a journey to a legendary city.
