FlyOver Canada

Immersive and thrilling, FlyOver Canada offers an unforgettable journey across Canada’s most spectacular sights and landscapes, all without leaving downtown Vancouver. Nestled in the heart of the city at the iconic Canada Place, this state-of-the-art flying theater attraction first opened its doors in 2013, pioneering a new kind of virtual reality experience that has since captivated audiences from all around the world.

As the name suggests, FlyOver Canada offers guests the unique opportunity to ‘fly over’ Canada in a breathtaking virtual flight ride. The experience begins with a pre-show that introduces guests to the diverse cultural tapestry of Canada through an inspiring film. Following the pre-show, guests are ushered into the flying theater, where the main attraction commences.

Seated on a unique moving platform, you’ll be hoisted in front of a 20-meter spherical screen that showcases high-definition footage of Canada’s most stunning landscapes, from the craggy peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the expansive prairies, majestic icebergs of Newfoundland, and the vibrant cityscapes of Toronto and Vancouver. The ride is a sensory feast, utilizing motion, wind, mist, and scents to further amplify the sense of flight. The result is an immersive, multi-sensory experience that is as close as one can get to actually flying over these sights.

This thrilling 8-minute journey is accompanied by an original orchestral score, played on a surround sound system that further enhances the cinematic feel of the attraction. With each segment of the journey, you’ll feel a sense of exhilaration as you swoop, dip, and glide through the diverse landscapes that make up the vast expanse of Canada.

Located within Canada Place, the venue itself is a landmark worthy of exploration. With its distinctive sail-shaped design, it offers panoramic views of the Burrard Inlet, the North Shore mountains, and downtown Vancouver. It’s also a stone’s throw away from other prime Vancouver attractions like the Vancouver Convention Centre, Jack Poole Plaza, and the bustling downtown core.

FlyOver Canada is suitable for all ages, making it an ideal activity for families, couples, and solo travelers alike. It operates year-round, and even offers special seasonal rides that incorporate different themes, further enhancing its appeal. However, do note that height restrictions apply, and the realistic flying sensation may not be suitable for those who experience motion sickness.

All in all, FlyOver Canada presents a unique and exhilarating way to explore the beauty and diversity of Canada’s landscapes. It captures the essence of what makes Canada remarkable, providing guests with memories that are likely to linger long after the ride has ended.
