Guests will be seated, feet dangling, before a 23-metre x 17.5-metre spherical screen as the film whisks them away on an exhilarating eight-minute journey across Canada.

Special effects, including wind, mist, and scents, combine with the ride’s motion to create a unique and unforgettable experience.
