Description: Experience America like never before. With wind, scents, and mist you'll feel like you're truly flying! Soar over some of the USA's most breathtaking and spectacular landscapes and city skylines - without leaving Minnesota.

FlyOver America uses the latest in-flight ride technology to give you a bird's eye view of America’s most awe-inspiring sights. You will sit in a suspended chair, your feet dangling, in front of a gigantic spherical screen. Special effects including wind, mist, and scents, combined with the chair’s motion, will make you feel like you’re truly soaring.

Plunge into deep valleys and trace the path of their rushing rivers. Feel the wind in your hair as you glide over tranquil lakes and marvel at the snow-capped mountains towering above. Take in the sights and sounds of buzzing urban settings and the expansive wild lands of the west. By the journey’s end, you will be in true awe of the breathtaking splendor of our country. Coast to coast, valley floor to mountaintop, you’ll travel more than 10,000 miles without leaving Minnesota! It’s time to fly!

FlyOver Canada film will also be showing alternate to FlyOver America.
