Really don't get the seemingly universal love for Soarin'. The lazy jarring editing and a screen which is very much in front of you rather than surrounding you destroys the feeling of flight. It's a pretty simple set up too, not really the technological marvel this article wants to think it is. It doesn't draw me in to feel like a participant at all, I feel very much like a spectator sitting there.
This may well be much more refined, but the actual experience of something like the ancient cine180 system was far superior, leaving the seating system feeling like a gimmick rather than something that really adds to the overall effect.
I really like the idea, but unusually for Disney I don't think the execution is right at all.
