I'm not sure what I expected, but this attraction exceeded those expectations. We arrived into Vancouver via ship and FlyOver Canada was at the same port. It's a very convenient location.
I purchased tickets via Viator and we printed them out as directed, but you don't get a scheduled time when booking this way. When we arrived in line we were directed to go back to their ticketing area inside their little gift shop to exchange our paper vouchers for a ticket with a time slot. So remember to do that if you book via a third party.
Once we got our time slot, we stood in a long outside line. This was December in Canada, so it was cold and rainy. The area is covered overhead but is still exposed to the elements, so be prepared. They did have heat lamps set up and the line moved rather quickly, so it was bearable.
The first room was an introductory-type setting, which showed a video. Initially, I thought that was going to be all there was to this attraction and I was UPSET! Then we were moved into another room to queue entry into the main/ride area.
Once on the ride, we strapped in, the lights when out, and the next thing I knew, we were soaring! There was some tilting and there was wind and mist. I felt like I was flying with the birds! I don't know how they do it I don't know if the floor drops or if you move beyond the floor... But don't think too hard about the science behind it, just enjoy the ride.
After the ride, we went back to their store and bought digital copies of our pictures for what I felt was a reasonable price. There are a lot of souvenirs in their gift shop, but you could find those anywhere so dont feel pressured to get something right then and there.
It was my first time in Canada and this was an awesome introduction to the country. It was so much fun! I thoroughly enjoyed this virtual soar, and I would definitely do it again!
We wish we could do this ride again and again! In a central location, right on the dock near the cruise ships. If we hadn't booked this experience before we left on holidays we may have missed out. Very popular attraction but sooooo worth the wait. Amazing insight into Canada and the surrounding landscape. Even though you are seated and buckled in it seems like you are flying over the amazing scenery. Better than any theme park ride.
My expectation for Fly Over Canada wasn't very high. I had experienced another flight simulation in another city, and wasn't too impressed. I was pleasantly pleased with Fly Over Canada. I highly recommend this simulation.
Very much enjoyed the ride. It was a nice way to see different parts of Canada without leaving Vancouver. The ride definitely makes it fun, as your feet dangle and it feels like you are flying throughout the different provinces of Canada.
