“Do the FlyOver Canada”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Canada Place is a free attraction along the coast, where cruise ships leave from. There is also a convention centre there. There were a number of public displays there celebrating success stories and they just added a display on the 1812 war which was interesting.

The latest attraction is a 4-D simulator called FlyOver Canada. It cost $20, and the whole thing lasts 30mins, with the 4D bit going for 9 mins. It beats ANY helicopter ride and costs a lot less. Do this if it is the only thing you do at Canada Place and it will be worth the visit. Go early or late in the day (8-9pm in summer) when queues are shorter.

“Beautiful Scenery!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We had the pleasure of staying at the Pan Pacific in Canada Place and enjoyed the fantastic view and scenery that Vancouver has to offer. There were several cruise lines that docked during our stay and had us tempted to check out deals for the next trip back for a possible Alaskan cruise trip. The view of Grouse Mountain and North Vancouver across the water was spectacular and the hustle and bustle of the downtown on the other makes this an ideal location to book a room. With the Skytrain just a few steps away from here, it's easy to jump on the train and explore. We're glad we picked this location to book our hotel, it was chill to walk around rather than be in the middle of town or by the financial district where hustle and bustle will feel like you have to rush. Ideal vacation spot!

“Perfect place for a stroll!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Just walking around on a nice day is good. There is lots to see, with the port close and the mall nearby. So if the weather is nice, go!!

“Fly Over and Vancouver Look Out”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We spent two days in Vancouver and really enjoyed the Canada Place area of the City. The Fly Over attraction was AMAZING. It gave you a quick over view of this Great Country from coast to coast in an helicopter without leaving the ground.
We enjoy traveling around this Country but got a whole new love for it with this ride looking down at all of it's beauty
The night view from the Vancouver Tower setting in the revolving restaurant overlooking the City was awsome. As were the helpful people of Vancouver.

“Clean and Well Run”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We walked around Canada Place before our cruise left and were happy with how clean such a very busy place was. Our entry onto the ship was smooth and quick. Very efficiently, unlike the airport that took hours for half of the people.
