Leading up to Canada Day which is every July 1st, I thought it a good idea to showcase some exciting & inspiring local events and businesses.I began with a little write-up on Vancouver’s “Bard on the Beach” our first-rate Shakespearean theatre group which brings tourists and local community together by filling seats to capacity every afternoon/evening until the finish in September.
Yesterday I decided it was time to do another flying trip over Canada. In a matter of minutes not only did I experience the trip of a lifetime flying over the great rockies, Niagara Falls and more…but I also flew over the American Great Wild West. All without leaving my seat. Let me explain.
Fly Over Canada is located at Canada Place – which is an iconic landmark located in the heart of Vancouver’s waterfront. We know it as a venue for world-class events, home port to the Vancouver-Alaska cruise lines, Vancouver Convention Centre East, Pan Pacific Hotel, FlyOver Canada, World Trade Centre and more.
FLY OVER CANADA is North America’s leading flying ride.
Last time I was here was at least six or seven years ago where I experienced “Fly Over China.” “Fly Over Canada” experience is always showing, however they add another country or area of interest which shows for only so long before they switch it up. If you’ve never been I urge you to go. A bit pricey but totally worth the trip. You’re strapped to a moving seat suspended, feet dangling, enveloped by a 20-metre spherical screen which gives you the feeling of actually being on the journey as they’ve captured thrilling, authentic footage of real locations so riders experience those locations as they truly are.
I’ve flown and driven all over Canada as well as the American West like all the places shown on the ride…but I’ve never seen them like this before. Totally Thrilling!
