FlyOver Canada Halloween Spook-tacular
In celebration of Halloween, FlyOver Canada invites aspiring witches, wizards, and guests of all ages to experience a limited-engagement event, October 16 – November 1, 2015, 4pm – 9pm at Canada Place, featuring ‘Broomelda the Witch’. Vancouver’s must-see attraction offers guests the chance to earn their official ‘Witch Academy Diploma’ as they make their way through the ‘Haunted Hallway’, and then onto the ride for a thrilling flight across Canada.
“The past popularity of Halloween at FlyOver® Canada has shown that Vancouverites are looking for a unique way to celebrate Halloween with the whole family,” says Lisa Adams, Director, Operations and Sales of Soaring Attractions LP. “We aim to have fun with the Halloween concept, however, keep it tied closely to the theme of flight; this is how the ‘Broomelda Witch Academy’ concept was born.”
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!
Riders will commence their pre-flight Halloween experience by entering the pre-show to meet Broomelda, the Witch Academy headmistress, who will then share her best advice for graduating from the academy successfully. Next, riders will venture through the ‘Haunted Hallway’, and onto the ride to experience FlyOver® Canada. Upon exiting, guests will receive their Official Witch Academy Diploma.
Halloween at FlyOver Canada is fast becoming an annual, family-friendly tradition with the ‘spook-factor’ suitable for those aged 4 years and up. 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. Guests of all ages are encouraged to dress in costume. From 10am – 3pm, the original FlyOver Canada experience will be offered at regular admission pricing.
