I love being a tourist in my hometown and when I recently posted about my visit to FlyOver Canada’s The Real Wild West ride flight on Instagram (on until December 8th), several people messaged me to say it’s one of their favourite attractions downtown! I have to say, after almost two years of the same — mostly staying home and watching movies on my iPad — this state of the art flight simulation ride really was a thrill. They have a few experiences on offer right now, so here’s what you can enjoy at FlyOver Canada this season including Soar with Santa and a Breakfast with Santa.

Soar with Santa (December 9, 2021 through January 3, 2022) takes guests on a holiday adventure from coast to coast, and onward to the snow-dusted North Pole. Guests will have a memorable experience of soaring over dazzling landscapes with FlyOver Canada’s state-of-the-art technology – including special effects such as wind, mist and scents – to replicate the feeling of flying across the country. The attraction is ideal for families, couples or groups of friends, and can be gifted as a unique holiday experience. The cinematic flight ride is enhanced by festive refreshments and treats in The Flying Whale Cafe.
