FlyOver Canada is gives an impressive overview of Canada’s landscape

By Keith and Heather Nicol

     On a recent trip to Vancouver we decided to check out the FlyOver Canada attraction which is conveniently located at Canada Place in downtown Vancouver. This attraction is very popular and to avoid waiting in line you might want to reserve online. We were traveling with my sister and her family who were visiting from Arizona and we didn't reserve and we had about a 40 minute wait.  FlyOver Canada is a simulated helicopter flight over some of Canada’s most scenic areas and you feel like you are whizzing  over the landscape just above the tree tops. The show travels from east to west and we loved the shots of icebergs and scenic Western Brook Pond in Newfoundland. From there the trip follows a rugged river valley in Quebec, Ontario’s Niagara Falls and the Muskoka Lakes in fall splender. When you “fly” over water scenes you even feel a light mist hitting you in the face which makes “flight” seem very realistic. We also liked the wide open scenes from the praires as well as the dramatic mountain vistas from the Rockies. The flight ends by flying over the FlyOver Canada building you are sitting in along the Vancouver Waterfront. The full show is 30 minutes long and really does showcase Canada’s varied scenery.  It is geared for all ages and see: for more information.
