Flyover Canada Riders soaring over mountains

If you haven’t had the chance to experience Flyover Canada yet, this is the perfect opportunity to take in two of their most iconic shows in one visit! Double features are our favourite way to experience the ride and how we usually plan our visit when we take someone who hasn’t experienced it yet. There’s something so memorable about taking in both a special feature and the classic Flyover Canada show. Many times we’ve done this and everyone gets off the right with a big sigh and a “wow”. Seeing two shows at once, back to back, also really makes you appreciate the different cinematography and experiences worked into each show.

Our family has seen nearly every Flyover Canada location, including Halloween and Christmas and it never ceases to amaze any of us! It doesn’t matter how many times I take the Flyover Canada flight, I find myself spying things I’ve never seen before. Adding in that this immersive ride experience is grounding for both my daughter and I with anxiety, we love the feeling of flying high above the screen and the quietness of the overall experience. It brings you into nature and exploration without even needing to travel!

The dynamic attraction takes guests on a multi-sensory journey as they soar over the American West’s most iconic locations and natural wonders as part of a cutting-edge entertainment experience. Be prepared to swoop, fly and glide through this incredible experience.
