Owner description: See Canada like never before at Vancouver's new must-see attraction! At its core,FlyOver Canada is a breathtaking, all-ages, flight simulation ride like no other! You will take off into a huge dome screen with the latest in projection and ride technology creating a true flying experience (complete with wind, scents, and mist!).At FlyOver Canada you will spend approximately 30 minutes getting introduced to our great country. You will first enter the preshow area where you will be immersed in an audio-visual show of Canada "up close and personal" before heading to the boarding zone for your preflight briefing. You will then hit your flight deck and spend 8 minutes on the unforgettable Ultimate Flying Ride soaring east to west over some of the most spectacular scenery the country has to offer.Open year round, 7 days a week. Conveniently located downtown at Canada Place.

“Smashing experience for the whole family”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

What a way to see Canada at its best. The scenes depicted are outstanding, and you will find that you want to tuck your feet under your seat so you are not touching the ice or trees.
The first part of the experience, you sit or stand in a room surrounded by depictions of scenery, athletes etc. Amazing photography and you are smiling as you come to the end of a fifteen minute interval. On to the movie itself.

You are given a seat and you strap yourself in. The seats move towards a huge concave screen and the movie starts, with you as a part of it. Truly Canadian scenes, Fall colors, hockey on outdoor rink, the far north. It only takes about fifteen minutes but it is thrilling.

“Worth it!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Came here with colleagues. Definitely worth visiting. Wish the ride/show was longer! Amazing to see the different parts of Canada. Would be beneficial if they would label the cities/landmarks being viewed during the show as some of them were hard to guess.

“Needs some polish”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

The idea, organisation, and presentation was good. Unfortunately it pulled up a bit short.
Coverage was limited on things such as the mining industry, range of farming, fishing etc.
I also felt that maybe it would tell more of a story.

“Canada Day Party - what a Party”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We went to Fly Over Canada for the "Canada Party". What a great night!! Not only did we get to do the "Fly Over" but had a Vera burger and reserved area for the Fireworks.

I don't know if I would do this again - but it was a great experience and a fun way to spend our Anniversary!

“Wow! Loved it!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This was recommended to us by someone that had been before and said it was pretty good. Well, the price of $20.00 per adult made me have second thoughts but I have to say that it was well worth it. The whole adventure takes half an hour. It's almost like an interactive movie / game and you fly over Canada coast to coast. Amazing! I would definitely recommend this!
