Our Story

Journey Across the Country with FlyOver Canada

FlyOver Canada utilizes state-of-the-art technology to reveal some of Canada’s most awe-inspiring sights as you have never seen them before. You will hang suspended, feet dangling, before a 20-metre spherical screen while our film whisks you away on an exhilarating 9-minute journey across Canada, from east to west. FlyOver Canada’s film crew spent more than a year travelling from coast to coast to capture some of Canada’s most spectacular and iconic locations. Special effects, including wind, mist and scents, combine with the ride’s motion to create a unique and memorable experience.

Dip into deep valleys through which wild rivers rush; feel the wind in your hair as you glide over magnificent prairies; gaze at snow-capped mountains that tower above the land; seek the thrill of buzzing urban environments that pulse from morning till night. By the journey’s end, you will find yourself in awe of the breathtaking splendour of this country.

On this incredible journey of discovery you’ll travel from coast to coast, covering more than 6,000 km – all of this while never leaving Vancouver! We can’t wait to share this incredible adventure with you!

Ultimate Flying Ride

The dream of flight is as old as time itself. Similarly, buried deep in the Canadian soul is the desire to travel across Canada from coast to coast. This quest has captivated the earliest explorers as well as our modern day heroes.

The appeal of FlyOver Canada makes the imagined real. Since opening in June 2013, FlyOver Canada has brought smiles to over a million riders of all ages, from every corner of Canada and over 40 nations worldwide.

During the Ultimate Flying Ride you will see numerous cities and vistas across the country. The production team for FlyOver Canada were able to select 18 scenes from over 100 hours of footage to represent Canada in the ride film. There are no subtitles or voice-overs during the experience, as we did not want to detract from the flying sensation. To know what incredible scenes you flew over purchase one of our souvenir guides or view the scene list below.
