Flyover Canada

Taking a flight-seeing helicopter tour around Canada presents a distinct challenge: who the hell can afford it? Inspired by a ride in Disneyland, this 4-D experience is just the ticket we need. Strapped into a chair, feel the floor sink away as you lift-off, the wind blowing your through your hair, and the mist of oceans and waterfalls as you fly from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

Where to Stay : We recommend staying with our trusted partner Holiday Inn when visiting Vancouver.

Getting There : By Skytrain or foot: Once you get to Canada Place, follow the signs. If you walk along the promenade, head north towards the mountain until you reach the elevators. It is well sign posted so you shouldn't miss it. There is underground parking accessed from the bottom of Howe Street. Flyover Canada is located in the same building as the cruise terminal.

Note from Robin : I'm not one to throw your everyday amusement park ride on a nation's Bucket List. The first time I did Flyover, I was so impressed I was already thinking about coming back with my friends. The folks in the line with me during my second visit did the same thing. It's well priced and delivers the thrills. If there's one complaint, it's that the ride itself is too short! I can't wait to see new journeys currently in the works by the Flyover production team.
