My family recently went to Vancouver for a mini getaway. We stayed at a hotel downtown and wanted to do a few fun things with the kids within walking distance. On the top of our list was to experience FlyOver Canada at Canada Place.
FlyOver Canada is a virtual flight ride that is perfect for the entire family. The experience starts with a short movie called UpLift! followed by embarking on the Ultimate Flying Ride.
Flight guides bring you to your special seat, demonstrate how to tie your seatbelt and stand back for you to enjoy the movie. Once everyone is ready, your seats fly up and you are suspended in the sky. We loved that our feet were dangling and the special effects during the ride were great (we were surprised and thrilled to feel mist on us a few times).
The ride lasts approximately 8 minutes and flies you across some of Canada from east to west. During the film, you will see the most beautiful scenery and cities.
Quick Facts about FlyOver Canada:
- All passengers must be at least 102cm/40″ tall.
- You can save 10% off your ticket price by buying them in advance online
- FlyOver Canada has special Halloween and Christmas showings
My family absolutely loved our FlyOver Canada experience, it was one of the highlights of our weekend. I wish we were going back to Vancouver soon to see either the Halloween or Christmas show. I think these special showings would be so much fun!
FlyOver Canada is something I highly recommend doing when in Vancouver, BC.

This looks so great.. would love to visit and try sometime
I’ve done this before! It was such an amazing and fun experience. I would definitely do this again!
I took my kids last summer and it was so fantastic. We all loved it very much and wanted to go again.
I have never been to a moving theater….some day
My husband and I were just talking about spending a few days in Vancouver with the kids. There are several things we want to do there with them that we haven’t because of the drive to get there (although we aren’t a ferry ride away…it’s only a couple hours drive for us). Fly Over Canada is definitely on our list!
That would be fun!!
Living in a small area we miss out on all the good fun.Have a safe Halloween everyone!
