About
FlyOver Canada utilizes state-of-the-art technology to give you the feeling of flight. You will hang suspended, feet dangling, before a 20-metre spherical screen while our film whisks you away on an exhilarating 8-minute journey across Canada, from east to west. Special effects, including wind, mist and scents, combine with the ride’s motion to create an unforgettable experience. At FlyOver Canada you will spend approximately 25 minutes getting introduced to our great country. You will first enter the pre-show 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 experience the unforgettable 8-minute Ultimate Flying Ride soaring 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.

Amazing Place! You must go to FlyOver Canada
Apr. 2020
Fly Over Canada is the best attraction in Vancouver. It is short but is the best 20 minutes ever. If you visiting Vancouver please you must go to visit FlyOver Canada. I highly recommend it.

Flew Beyond Expectations!
Nov. 2020
In preparation for our mini staycation, my partner and I decided to play the ultimate tourist and book the FlyOver Iceland and FlyOver Canada double feature. Without getting overly wordy, I’ll just say we enjoyed it very much. Taken together, both FlyOver experiences exceeded our expectations! To access FlyOver Canada @ Canada Place, you first have to walk the “Canada Trail” and then up a number of flights of stairs. After checking in, we waited in line for the pre-show video experience. Here, guests enter a room that features a “surround theatre,” which incorporates both 2D and 3D imaging. In our case, it was a brief introduction to Iceland. I’ll be honest – at first I thought this video represented the “FlyOver” experience and I was feeling pretty underwhelmed. As I told my partner, “I’ve seen better quality video in the early 90s in Las Vegas!” Thankfully, though, I was wrong in my assumption and we were led to the main event. Here, we were brought to our seats, given a quick safety briefing and then left to our “FlyOver” experiences. FlyOver Iceland was absolutely amazing. It’s a part of the world I’ve always wanted to visit and, thanks to this experience, I actually feel as though I’ve been there. Climbing the glacial peaks, diving into crevices, soaring past Hallgrimskirkja, and immersing oneself in the Aurora are all part of the Icelandic experience and FlyOver captures it well. Add to this the fact that you’re lifted (and tilted) in your seat, encountering mist, wind and scents of place and you’re left with an absolute winner. All my partner and I could say after this awesome experience was “WOW!” When it came to the FlyOver Canada experience, it was beautiful – highlighting a lot of Canada’s natural beauty and cityscapes in crisp 4K – but it seemed kind of stale after having just done the Iceland experience. I don’t know why that is? Maybe because I’ve been to many of the places highlighted (Iceberg Alley, Toronto, Niagara, Banff, Tofino), and therefore they’re already familiar whereas Iceland was “exotic”? There. That’ll be my excuse! Anyway, the FlyOver Canada experience is engaging and does what it’s designed to do: Celebrate this wonderful country while concomitantly encouraging you to explore more of it; though, in my case, I’m more inclined to visit Iceland now!

When we have guests from out of town we always take them to enjoy the Flyover Canada show. We just made it for the last feature of the fly over Iceland. Highly recommend it next time it’s featured.

WOW. What a flight!!☺
Nov. 2020 • Couples
So well done!! Felt like you were on a REAL flight over many parts of Canada. Even had a mist when you went over Niagra Falls and the smells of the forest as we flew over Ontario and B.C. We could have done this again and again.

FlyOver (some of) Canada
Nov. 2020 • Friends
Went here with a friend - experience was ok. It's a pretty fun time for a 25 minute "experience" but they completely skip over my two favourite cities Regina and Winnipeg. It seemed like flyover Canada went from Calgary to Toronto. The parkour video in the intro lobby isn't the greatest and really not sure how this fits into the attraction. You see this attraction once - you don't need to come back. Pay the student price on the internet for $20 - they don't check IDs (you'll thank me for saving you money)

Iceland was great Canada not so much
Nov. 2020 • Family
This is an amazing experience. My only comment is that the Canada ride could include a lot more content and in particular is missing Indigenous peoples content.

Amazing ride and scenery
Nov. 2019
This was an amazing experience. I was very impressed with the ride and felt like I was actually flying. The scenery and effects were amazing. The ride lasted about 30 minutes and when I finished I wanted to go back on it. I hope to return next year for another visit.
