Christmas at FlyOver Canada is a wonderful family-friendly experience, perfect for getting you in the Christmas spirit!
The Christmas season is traditionally a joyous time full of celebration, get-togethers, and creating happy memories with friends and family. One great way to spend quality time with loved ones over the holiday season is checking out the local Christmas activities in your neighbourhood, or exploring various Christmas markets and malls looking for those special gifts that are going to bring big smiles to those you care about the most on Christmas morning.
Vancouver has plenty of wonderful Christmas fun on offer for people of all ages to enjoy, including the Christmas Train in Stanley Park, the Enchant Christmas Light Maze, and various craft and Christmas markets that take place every weekend in December.
A particularly unique Vancouver Christmas attraction is Christmas at FlyOver Canada, located at the Vancouver Convention Centre at Canada Place. This all-ages flight simulator takes you on a coast to coast mission in search of Santa’s missing elves for safe return to the North Pole. Along the way, passengers fly over some of Canada’s most breathtaking sights from all around the nation.
Christmas at FlyOver Canada is a fabulous adventure for the whole family! The activity’s central location is perfect for embarking on a full day of Christmas fun in downtown Vancouver. From start to finish FlyOver Canada offers an immersed winter experience, like pretty Christmas lights and decorations to really inspire the Christmas cheer, a delicious s’mores station, and of course the exhilarating flight over Canada and into the North Pole.
FlyOver Canada’s state-of-the-art technology offers a full sensory experience, as their simulator lifts the crowd into an expansive-dome shaped theatre and passengers’ legs dangle over the clouds.
