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.

“Kids had fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We sent our 11 & 14 year olds in by themselves and they enjoyed it but said it was nothing amazing. It was very similar to California Adventures 4D ride.

Hi Travel72 - Pleased the kids had fun! One of the great aspects of Flyover Canada is that it appeals to such a broad audience - from 4 and 5 year olds to grandparents and to...as attested by you...teens!!! Thanks for providing the feedback.

“Wonderful Ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We went to Fly Over Canada during the Christmas season. We loved the ride experience, which was tremendous fun and very exciting, much like a real helicopter ride. The 8 minutes went by too quickly and we were left wanting more. The pre-show experience, on the other hand, was disappointing and felt like a time filler only. Would I recommend this? Yes, the short ride is worth the money.

“Out of focus”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

After reading all the reviews I am thinking I was there on an off night, the China soaring was so out of focus as to be nauseating, with the Canada experience not much better. The technology is wonderful, and is an awesome addition to Vancouver's Canada Place. But please improve the quality of the projections.

Hi Grendel-Vancouver - We're pleased you were impressed with technology but disappointed you were let down by the picture quality. We'll double check that there were no issues during your visit. The screen at FlyOver Canada is enormous - over 4 stories high and 20 meters wide. When you take into account the concave nature of it - the surface area is gigantic. We do use the latest in HD digital projection but given the size of the screen it won't match the resolution of your iPad or even HD television. However, we are always investigating and exploring new large format projection technologies as they emerge in the market. We hope to meet your expectations in this regard next time! Thanks for taking the time to write.

“A great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

We visited Fly Over Canada one wet afternoon and found it a wonderful way to see the scenery of Canada in a short space of time. It gave us more incentive to return to this beautiful country.

“Worth seeing but needs a few slight improvements”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

I went on this with my 10 year old son. we saw the Flight of the Dragon, featuring China which was spectacular. We then watch what I assume is the regular feature on Canada. Throughout the film my son questioned me on what parts of Canada he was seeing, which being from the Vancouver area, I believe I was correct. I also could hear those exiting trying to guess the sites. Would be nice for those sites to be noted some how and possibly from East to West or vice versa might work better than the scattered version as presented. Canadian film section was for shorter than I was expecting for the $36 for the two of us. But all in all I would spend the $ again as we really did enjoy it!

Hi Darlenedelta - We're very happy you had such a great time and will return. BTW - We are producing a guide to be available later in the year that will show the flight path for those more interested in finding out about the places visited during the flight. Generally speaking the flight takes guests from the eastern coast of Canada to the western part of the country. Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to write!
