FlyOver Canada’s Wild West Show Tickets (or shall I say boarding pass)

Back again for a second showing, tickets are now on sale for FlyOver Canada’s Wild West Show with the show running from April 21st to June 26th. Before you board your flight you need to get your tickets, give this giant Moose “Horton” a hug (okay, not mandatory but definitely more fun), and head on up to the boarding lounge. 

When purchasing tickets I recommend that you get tickets to both the FlyOver Canada experience as well as the Wild West show. It’s a great way to experience both Canadiana as well as the US-based Wild West Show Experience.

Pre Flight Show At FlyOver Canada

The pre-show at FlyOver Canada’s Wild West show helps introduce the region you’re about to explore and gets you excited to take flight. A 360-degree screen welcomes you into the pre-show lounge where once the show starts you are fully immersed in the Wild West, learning about the history, geography, as well as action of the iconic region.

Take Off

Once buckled in and given a go for takeoff from your Flight Director, the barricades drop down and your seat glides forward, making you feel like you’re sitting on the nose of a plane flying through the skies. The show was shot by award-winning film director, Dave Mossop of Whistler-based Sherpas Cinema, who puts you in the center of the action, nose-diving deep into the Grand Canyon and surfing San Francisco’s biggest waves. There is a reason there are big handlebars on your seat, so you can hold on when you want to ground yourself and all the 4D senses of the experience make you feel like you’re actually flying through the air! 

Flying Through the Wild West

This photo was taken from behind our seats, showcasing what a rider’s experience at FlyOver Canada’s Wild West Show is actually like. Guests sit on a state-of-the-art moving platform with their seats positioned in the middle of the 20-metre spherical screen. This means you feel every movement, along with the wind, splashes of mist from the sea, and even specific scents from different locations!  I’ve taken young children and grandparents to the show and no matter what the age everyone walks away loving the experience. 

The Real Wild West Post Show Shopping Experience

After the show guests are invited to explore the gift lounge where they can shop for Canadian or Wild West souvenirs. I had fun posing with some of the new characters that were brought out for the Real Wild West show!

1. What is the FlyOver Canada Real Wild West show and what can you expect from the experience?

The FlyOver Real Wild West Experience is an additional opportunity for locals and guests to experience the FlyOver Canada experience but showcasing a different country.

Typically the “FlyOver Canada” feature will be on the hour every hour and then the “Special Feature” will be on the 15 or 45.

8. Fly Over Real Wild West Reviews

The Real Wild West Show was much different than I had expected. I was expecting a more traditional West showing such as cowboys and gold rush imagery but was pleasantly surprised when the Wild West was showcasing all of the iconic regions around the USA’s West Coast. With a passion for eco-tourism, it was great to see areas like National Parks, the Grand Canyon, and the big surf in San Francisco be showcased, inspiring people to reimagine the “Wild” in the Wild West!
