Take flight during the holiday season with FlyOver Canada’s Santa experience

Fly the skies alongside Santa Claus and onward to the North Pole with the FlyOver Canada experience at Canada Place, Vancouver.

From December 8, 2022, to January 3, 2023, celebrate the festive season with the return of FlyOver Canada’s popular holiday flight ride, Soar with Santa. Families and visitors can fly the skies alongside Santa Claus from coast to coast and onward to the North Pole.

Festive refreshments and treats in The Flying Whale Café provide excellent additions to the cinematic flight ride experience.

Soar with Santa takes off from the eastern shoreline on its epic flight west, soaring over Canada’s iconic destinations. Throughout the journey, riders can keep a close watch for Santa’s runaway elves as he desperately needs them home before Christmas Eve. The flight then veers sharply off course for an enchanting visit to the snow-dusted North Pole.

The Soar with Santa experience lasts approximately 25 minutes and includes the preshow, the pre-flight briefing in the boarding zone, and eight minutes on the Ultimate Flying Ride.

For an extra magical morning during the holiday season, FlyOver Canada hosts exclusive weekend breakfasts with Santa, where guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet, visit by Santa Claus himself, and Soar with Santa. This experience is available on December 10, 11, 16, 17, and 18, 2022.

During its opening week, kids 15 and under can ride free with an adult (one child per each regular-priced adult ticket) from December 8 to 15, 2022. Other specials include a Family Experience Package, which provides a cookie and 50 percent off a souvenir keepsake photo.

FlyOver Canada uses 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, and groups of friends or given as a gift for a unique holiday experience.
