The much-anticipated FlyOver Canada attraction opens at Canada Place this Canada Day long weekend on Saturday, June 29!
It is Vancouver’s answer to the popular Soarin’ Over California experience at Disney California Adventure Park. FlyOver Canada has two components – a pre-show designed by Moment Factory and the main feature attraction, the actual “FlyOver Canada” experience filmed by Sherpas Cinema.
Passengers will be strapped into their seats and hydraulics will lift them in front of a massive 20-metre half-spherical dome screen that will simulate a soarin’ experience over numerous sites across the country, including Parliament Hill, Niagara Falls, icebergs, Canada Place, and many more.
The attraction cost $16-million to develop, which included the conversion of Canada Place’s old IMAX theatre and a cross-country film production project that utilized helicopters and planes to film stunning high-definition aerial scenes.
In total, the entire FlyOver Canada experiences runs 30-minutes in length. General admission at the gate is $19.95 for adults; $17.95 for seniors, students, and youth; and $14.95 for children. However, if you book online beforehand, you get a discounted price.
