Las Vegas is known for over-the-top attractions, and this fall, visitors can check out another show-stopping experience. FlyOver, the new flight ride attraction coming to the Las Vegas Strip, will be a multi-sensory journey taking guests over the American West’s most iconic locations and natural wonders. Flyover, which cost around $40 million to build, will cost adults $34 to ride.
On Flyover in Las Vegas, you actually don’t go anywhere. Visitors experience the feeling of flight through immersive, state-of-the-art technology that lets you dip and dive across majestic landscapes. In flight motion seats, guests hang suspended, feet dangling, in front of a 52.5-foot-wide spherical, wrap-around screen while a film whisks them away on a journey across land, sea and sky—all set to a musical score.
To enhance theatrics, guests will feel wind and mists and smell the scents of nature, according to the website, for a multi-sensory experience. There will be two journeys to choose from: The Real Wild West and Legends of Iceland. The experience is meant to make you feel as if you’re actually in the destinations.
For instance, The Real Wild West, created by parent company Pursuit, will immerse guests in iconic destinations within Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Montana, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, all shot from the vantage point of a helicopter in sharp, high definition. During their flight, passengers will glide over 22 of the country’s most magnificent cities, monuments and landscapes, including:
- Viewing the solar eclipse as they fly over a volcanic peak in Oregon’s Cascade Volcanic Arc
- Seeing first-hand the vantage point of a wingsuiter as they descend Washington’s Stehekin Mountain
- Riding through Yellowstone with a team of stallions
- Surfing San Francisco’s biggest waves captured on film in 20 years
- Nosediving into the Grand Canyon
- Exploring Goldfield Ghost Town in Arizona
- Soaking in the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
- Getting a bird’s eye view of the Las Vegas Strip
Flyover Las Vegas will be located next to the Hard Rock Cafe on Las Vegas Boulevard South.
