Getting on the ride

At its core, FlyOver Canada features an amusement ride employing chairlift-style seats that lift guests up in the air. For safety reasons, in order to board the Ultimate Flying Ride, guests using wheelchairs must be able to transfer to the ride seating by themselves or with the assistance of a companion.

Guests who are unable to transfer from their wheelchairs may still enjoy the complete FlyOver Canada experience. We invite them to view the media of the main show from their wheelchairs (which remain stationary) on the flight deck.

In such circumstances, the guest will be accompanied by one of our team members on the flight deck for the 8-minute duration of the ride. For safety reasons, companions are unable to stay in this section of the ride. Companions may choose to wait in a specially designated area, or to go on the ride in a seat next to the wheelchair viewing area. Please note, if a paying guest requests with assistance from a companion, the companion’s ticket is provided free of charge.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! However, please note that FlyOver Canada features an amusement ride involving motion. Our guests who use wheelchairs may go on the Ultimate Flying Ride only if they are able to transfer from their wheelchair to the ride seat by themselves or with the assistance of a companion. Otherwise, you may enjoy the flight ride from a stationary position on the ride platform, accompanied by one of our flight guides. For safety reasons, in this situation, companions must go on the ride or wait off the ride platform. We ask that guests who will be arriving in wheelchairs please contact us in advance of their visit. There is no admission fee for a companion who is accompanying a paying guest using a wheelchair. For more information, please see Guest Accessibility.

The experience requires standing for between 20 and 30 minutes, and ascending and descending stairs. If you anticipate having difficulty with standing for 30 minutes, upon arriving at the attraction, please advise one of our Flight Guides, and they will accommodate you to the best of their ability, by providing a folding chair at certain points and minimizing the number of stairs you will have to climb or, if necessary, they will assist you in using our internal lift.

Please note that FlyOver Canada is located several hundred meters from the street. If you have walking difficulties, you might consider using the underground parking and the elevator lift at the north end of the parkade.
Industry guidelines advise that pregnant women should not participate in motion rides. Although FlyOver Canada is a very gentle motion ride, we follow the industry guidelines and ask expectant mothers to refrain from taking the ride.
Yes! Some of our most enthusiastic fans are seniors and young children. Children must be at least 102cm/40″ tall in order to ride. Our oldest rider to date was 104 years old!

Parent Swap

If a child is too small to ride, the group will split up into two groups. The first group will go and experience the ride and the second group will stay with the child and receive a Parent Swap ticket. When the first group exits, the second group will present the Parent Swap ticket and admissions to the scanner. While the second group experiences the ride, the first group will watch the child. Hence, the child will be supervised at all times by a parent or guardian.
