FlyOver Canada Attraction Coming to Toronto
Pursuit, part of Viad Corp has announced that its highly successful FlyOver attraction in Vancouver will expand to Toronto. The new FlyOver Canada location will provide guests with a brand-new flight ride experience featuring the country’s most iconic locations, picturesque landscapes and natural wonders.
Construction on the new attraction begins in 2020, with an anticipated opening in early 2022.
“Through a visually stunning flight ride experience inside a soon-to-be-built landmark building, we will share the story of Canada and its people in an inspiring way that is accessible to everyone,” said Lisa Adams, Vice President, FlyOver Attractions by Pursuit.
The new experience will feature a brand-new ride film showcasing Canada’s most awe-inspiring sights. The attraction will also include the creation of two immersive pre-ride experiences designed to share the unique spirit of Canada’s land and its people.
“FlyOver Canada aligns with Canada Lands Company’s vision to celebrate the CN Tower precinct as a world-class tourism and entertainment destination, showcasing Canada at its best,” said John McBain, President and Chief Executive Officer, Canada Lands Company. “FlyOver Canada fits with our commitment to creating unforgettable, accessible and meaningful experiences to guests coming from all over the world and we look forward to seeing their attraction come to life in downtown Toronto.”
FlyOver Canada utilizes state-of-the-art ride and audiovisual technology to reveal some of Canada’s most aweinspiring sights in a way never experienced before. Guests will be seated, feet dangling, before a 23-metre x 17.5-metre spherical screen as the film whisks them away on an exhilarating eight-minute journey across Canada. On this incredible journey, guests will travel more than 6,000 kilometres — all while never leaving the heart of Toronto. Special effects, including wind, mist and scents, combine with the ride’s motion to create a unique and unforgettable experience.
