About
FlyOver America uses the latest in flight ride technology to give you a bird's eye view of America’s most awe-inspiring sights. You will sit in a suspended chair, your feet dangling, in front of a gigantic spherical screen. Special effects including wind, mist and scents, combined with the chair’s motion, will make you feel like you’re truly flying. Plunge into deep valleys and trace the path of their rushing rivers. Feel the wind in your hair as you glide over tranquil lakes and marvel at the snow-capped mountains towering above. Take in the sights and sounds of buzzing urban settings and the expansive wild lands of the west. By the journey’s end you will be in true awe of the breathtaking splendor of our country. Coast to coast, valley floor to mountain top, you’ll travel more than 10,000 miles without leaving Mall of America! It’s time to fly!

Fly over Hawaii- Sooo NOT worth it!
This was a huge disappointment. The ride lasted all of eight minutes. Not kidding. I’ve been to many and love them, and in particular the Christmas ones. The fly over Canada was also wonderful. I expected somewhat the same. The flyover Hawaii really didn’t showcase the islands and the people the way it could have and how could it when it was only eight minutes long! So incredibly disappointed and was not worth the money.
It cost us $23.to park in the lot below the ride and paying for that and parking took longer than the actual ride itself… Never mind the line to get in.
Save your money!!

Very cool, fun ride but WAY overpriced. $45 for myself and my 9 year old daughter to ride and it lasts 10 minutes. If you've been on Sparin' at Disney this is the exact same thing.

This was an amazing experience. I didn’t want it to end. Just as I wondered if this is what heaven looks like, the next scene was an Eagle flying high in the mountains. I teared up. My mother passed 5 years ago and she was Eagle Mollie.

Good trip. We arrived at approximately 7 pm and bought our tickets to FlyOver America online, as it was a couple dollars cheaper than buying it in person. We then made our way into the line, and proceeded to wait for the employee to check us in and scan our tickets. This attraction did include quite a bit of waiting, as we had to wait several minutes in order to get checked in, several more minutes in order to watch the educational safety video, and once again several more minutes in order to be seated on the ride. The attraction was definitely one of a kind, and included various sources of stimulation, including wind, water, various scents and the motion of the ride. The views of various parts of the United States were breathtaking, and it felt as if I was physically in those areas. I would recommend doing this attraction at least once.

Tip: The entire process from buying our tickets, to getting checked in, to watching the safety video, and finally riding the ride was roughly 30 minutes.

It’s an awesome experience to do. 20.00 was a ok price yet having to ride this with other people (high schooler’s) that won’t be quiet through out the ENTIRE ride is really not so cool to enjoy. I did 2 different rides and I definitely loved my first one in which took us over then Grand Canyon and the Golden Gate Bridge. Will do it again!

It was almost like Soarin' at Disney but without the long lines.
If you have glasses, they mist your face several times so you watch the movie through foggy glasses. Also it's not good for those with mobility issues. But, they tried.

Purchased as part of a combo ticket. Didn't wait in line that long before being seated. The ride can't be more than 15 minutes. The staff is very nice and helpful. Very very similar to Disney's Soarin' in Epcot/California Adventure without the fireworks at the end. If you haven't done that, this will seem new. The "map" in the gift-shop helped to understand the scenes.

We have previously did Fly Over America, loved it. This time we did Fly Over Hawaii. Just as good. Every time we go to Minneapolis we will do Fly Over America. It is just not sitting in seat watching a big screen. It is an experience. Many of your senses will be engaged.

Seats move to the scene around you and there’s wind and water spray. Very cool way to experience the different regions of America.

If there are 2 options - buy the dual and then do it again for 1/2 off. The views of Flyover never get old.
