    I just saw that Mall of America is going to be putting in a new simulator ride inside Nickelodeon Universe Which is another hanglindig based attraction called Fly Over America...When you go to their site it pretty much shows Soarin Hangliders and it seems it will be flying around the USA not just one state...http://www.flyover-america.com/

    There first version FlyOver Canada in Vancuver could have easily fit with the Canada Pavilion at Epcot...

    Both of these films/rides seem to have been made by the same company. There are quite a few attractions similar to Soarin around the country. Since Epcot's Soarin sits directly behind the Canada pavilion, technically they could've built a long hallway connecting it to one of the Soarin theaters if they wanted I guess.

    They also look about half the size and a different way for them to be raised up in front of the screen...

    The different motion mechanisms are how everyone gets around everyone else's patents.

    Found this video of Wanda Movie Park in China. It has six movie based rides.

    Streets of Fury - is a basic 4D theater ride based loosely on Fast & Furious.
    Star Journey - is Star Tours
    Journey to the West - is Toy Story Mania
    Ultimate Energy - is Terminator 2 - 3D
    Power of Nature - is a large open simulator with fountains and an Imax screen
    Hubel in the Air - is Soarin' around the World
