September 25, 2013


FlyOver Canada is Vancouver’s newest must-see visitor attraction. Guests to FlyOver Canada will soar coast to coast on a breathtaking aerial journey taking in the excitement of Canada through the latest in virtual flight ride technology. The fully immersive experience is enhanced by the special effects ofwind, mist, and even scents! The ride is designed for family fun and suitable for ages 4 and up. FlyOver Canada was conceptualized by Vancouver entrepreneurs Andrew Strang and Stephen Geddes and brought to life with partner, Aquilini Investment Group. FlyOver Canada has been under development for 2.5 years at a cost of $16million.

FlyOver Canada opened early Summer 2013. The total experience is 30 minutes comprised of three parts lasting approximately 10 minutes each. Part 1 is the pre-show Uplift, a fully immersive audio-visual installation designed to build audience anticipation prior to the main ride. Part 2 is the pre-boarding zone where guests will view an entertaining pre-flight safety video. Part 3 is the feature ride where guests will soar across Canada feeling the grandeur of the nation and the exhilaration of flight.

The FlyOver Canada film was shot during the four seasons of 2012 in all corners of Canada including iceberg alley off the coast of Newfoundland, Niagara Falls, and Ontario’s Muskokas,to name just a few of the locations. Using the latest in high definition digital technology, the film is displayed on a custom 20-metre half-spherical screen. The original score is composed by Andrea Wettstein (Six Degrees Music) of Calgary, Alberta and recorded by the Vancouver Film Orchestra.

Special seasonal films are also planned for Christmas 2013 and Halloween 2014. The FlyOver Canada attraction is the first of its kind in Canada and one of only a handful of similar experiences in the world, including Disney’s Soarin’ over California attractions in the USA, and a few in Asia. FlyOver Canada is bullfrogpowered with 100% clean, renewable energy.
