FlyOver Canada® Welcomes Year of the Monkey with Fan-Favourite, Flight of the Dragon, Double-Feature
Must-see attraction celebrates Chinese New Year by pairing iconic Canadian flight with soaring journey over China’s spectacular cities & sites
In celebration of Chinese New Year, and Year of the Monkey, FlyOver® Canada presents the anticipated return of Flight of the Dragon – running from January 14 – March 6, at Canada Place. Vancouver’s must-see attraction gives riders the exceptional experience of soaring over China’s spectacular cities and vistas, flying above the electrifying city of Shanghai, the snow-peaked Himalayas, and the majestic Great Wall before immediately lifting off again for an iconic flight over Canada, as part of this limited-engagement event.
“Chinese New Year is a huge cause for celebration in Vancouver, and we are thrilled to be a key component of the annual festivities,” says Lisa Adams, Director, Operations and Sales of Soaring Attractions LP. “Flight of the Dragon offers guests an unparalleled experience to explore China’s beauty without ever stepping foot outside of Canada – one of the many reasons we’re delighted to be screening it again in honour of Year of the Monkey.”
The FlyOver® Canada attraction is a flight simulation ride that takes guests on a breathtaking aerial tour over some of Canada’s spectacular landscapes using the latest in ride flight technology. Guests sit suspended 10 to 25 feet above the ground in specialized ride vehicles, with their legs dangling, as they move in concert with the film. With the addition of special effects (scent, mist, wind), riders actually feel like they are flying.
FlyOver® Canada welcomes guests of all ages, however, children must be at least 102cm (40″) to participate on the ride. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult or guardian aged 14 years or older.
