Take a magical flight to the North Pole with FlyOver Canada + #Giveaway

Flyover Canada

Flyover Canada

Join Santa Claus on a simulated flight across Canada and then on to the North Pole in this treasured holiday tradition at Canada Place!

Vancouver’s must-see attraction, FlyOver® Canada, will transform into a magical winter wonderland this Christmas season, from November 27, 2015 to January 5, 2016 at Canada Place. Guests will have fun helping Santa Claus search for his missing elves during the exhilarating flight across Canada, and on to the North Pole. Riders may even be able to catch a whiff of Mrs. Claus’ baking as they swoop over her Gingerbread factory, yum! 

“Our entire team puts huge effort into the transformation of FlyOver® Canada, turning our space into a winter wonderland,” says Lisa Adams, Director, Operations and Sales of Soaring Attractions LP. “Not only will the entire family enjoy a magical, seasonal experience, complete with twinkling lights and Christmas music, guests will also enjoy a flight to the North Pole and over Santa’s workshop! With our Christmas edition we feel we’ve captured the city’s Christmas spirit, creating one of Vancouver’s not-to-be-missed holiday events.”

The FlyOver® Canada attraction is a flight simulation ride that takes guests on a breathtaking aerial tour over some of Canada’s spectacular landscapes using the latest in ride flight technology. Guests sit suspended 10 to 25 feet above the ground in specialized ride vehicles, with their legs dangling, as they move in concert with the film. With the addition of special effects (scent, mist, wind), riders actually feel like they are flying as every one of their senses is engaged in this interactive ride!
