Contest! FlyOver Canada Welcomes Year of the Sheep (Goat) with Breathtaking Flight of the Dragon Double-Feature
In celebration of Chinese New Year, and the Year of the Sheep (Goat), FlyOver Canada presents the anticipated return of Flight of the Dragon – on now to March 5 at Canada Place. Vancouver’s must-see attraction gives riders the breathtaking 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.
“China is a country overflowing with cultural diversity, rich history, and raw, awe-inspiring beauty. You have to see it to believe it – and Flight of the Dragon offers just that chance,” says Andrew Strang, CEO of Soaring Attractions LP, the owner of FlyOver Canada. “Last year, the experience proved so popular that we brought it back for the entire month of April due to high demand. We are delighted to be screening Flight of the Dragon again this year in honour of the Year of the Sheep (Goat).”
Located at the site of the former IMAX theatre at Canada Place, FlyOver Canada is a wholly immersive, state-of-the-art attraction using cutting-edge technology to replicate the experience of unfettered flight. Securely strapped into their ride seats, with legs dangling below, guests are fully encompassed by a massive 19-metre spherical screen, as they tilt, dip, and dive across magnificent vistas. As they soar over golden fields, towering forests, and cascading waterfalls, refreshing breezes, scents, and mists further stimulate riders’ senses.
The spectacular sights shared in the film were captured through the use of a custom camera system rigged to the nose of a helicopter. FlyOver Canada and its technology partners travelled across the country to capture the remarkable landscapes and locations that are showcased in the one-of-a-kind attraction.
FlyOver Canada opened its doors in June 2013, and since then has welcomed more than 700,000 guests through its doors to experience the incomparable attraction.
FlyOver Canada welcomes guests of all ages, however, children must be at least 102cm (40″) to participate on the ride (approximate height of average an 4 year-old). Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult or guardian aged 14 years or older.
We have partnered up with FlyOver Canada to give away 2 tickets to Flight of the Dragon to one lucky reader.
