Well, if you've been wanting to soar again above iconic Golden State landmarks in a flying theater ride, your wait might soon be over. No, Disney hasn't announced any plans to bring back the original Soarin' ride. But San Francisco's Pier 39 this summer will debut what might be the next best thing.
The Flyer - San Francisco will take off this summer at Pier 39 in Fisherman's Wharf. Employing a flying theater model by Triotech, the show will take visitors on a "six-minute 3D flight through some of Bay Area's iconic landmarks and neighborhoods, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, Marin Headlands, Chinatown, the Castro, and more," according to a press release.
Yes, unlike Disney's Soarin', this will be a 3D attraction. The theater will "fly" 28 guests at a time, who will be suspended in seats facing a 50-foot by 22-foot curved screen. Footage was shot with drones and helicopters and will be blended with computer-generated imagery for the show. Ernest Yale, President and CEO of Triotech, called the production "a love story to one of the most beautiful cities in the world."
Here's a preview:
Tickets will be $25 for adults and $15 for children and will go on sale "soon" at theflyer-sanfrancisco.com.Tweet
