Besides, do you wear glasses on Soarin?
Yes this. I have always worn my glasses on Soarin and any ride. If there is a 3D ride I just put them on top of my glasses.

How much did Soarin cost?
Official numbers have never been released but it is estimated that Soarin’ cost between 100 to 125 million dollars.
Soarin’ is an elevated simulated hang-glider tour around the world! This popular Epcot attraction lifts guests into the air and uses gentle motion, scents, and wind effects to create the sensation of flight as they take in an aerial view of world landmarks shown on a 180-degree, 80-foot IMAX digital projection dome.
Scary Factor: Minimal. The ride takes visitors 40 feet in the air, which may be frightening for those intensely scared of heights. It takes just a few seconds for the ride vehicles to be raised and lowered. Motion sickness is rarely a problem.
The American Adventure, Awesome Planet, Living with the Land, The Seas withe Nemo and Friends, and Soarin’ Around the World are ALL currently closed! A little earlier, Test Track was down, too, but it’s been reopened.
The original Soarin’ at Epcot actually replaced a show called, “Food Rocks!” It featured Audio-Animatronics singing educational food songs. The scenes you see on Soarin’ Over California were actually kind of staged!
