After getting off the ride I was planning my next trip to some where in the world. We saw many different countries, felt the wind in our faces and smelled the smells. Your feet dangle as you "fly" around the world below.

This ride is cool, especially if you have people in your group who have never experienced a 4D ride before. I’m terrified of heights, but this ride doesn’t scare me too much, but do be aware that you get lifted up quite a ways. The...More
