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.

Highly recommend this "fly over" Canada "ride." Go after the cruise ships depart- around 5:00 p.m. so the line is short. I rode it twice. One suggestion is, to cut costs- have one person ride it, because once they are done they get an option to buy the $20.00 tickets at half price.

We took a group of 11 year olds to Flyover Canada, and it was amazing! They loved it! The pre-show wasn't a huge hit, but they didn't really mind it either. The ride itself was perfect! It's just an amazing feeling to "soar" over and through Canada's landscape. The mist, wind and smells were just right throughout - nothing too overwhelming or fake-feeling. They just enhanced the experience perfectly. We went on a Monday at 2:00 and waited in line about 15 minutes, but I've heard that there are huge lines on the weekends. You can buy tickets to guarantee a short wait time for about $2 more, and I think that would have been worth it if we were going at a busy time. I have read a lot of comments that the ride seems toos short ... but I would say that while I could/would have happily continued "flying over Canada" for a few hours, I feel the price is worth the time that you do get. I love being given the option to purchase photos at the end, as well! We will be back!

This is a great attraction! It is a virtual flight over Canada. You really feel like you are flying and they even have breeze, mist, and scents to make it more realistic. Only complaint is that it is too short. There is a 12 minute or so pre-flight video, that really should be replaced with more "flight" time and then the actual 8 minute virtual flight. Probably not appropriate for those with motion sickness or extreme fear of heights.

Best ride I have ever done and amazing scenery. You actually get wet as you fly over Niagra falls and can smell the pine trees as you fly through the forest.

This attraction was fun, but way too short, like maybe five minutes long. Your feet dangle as you swoop across the whole country of Canada looking down as if flying. It could be a lot better if the video was in HD, kind of grainy, and it could really be a lot longer, kind of expensive for 5 minutes. ($20.00)
