FlyOver, an immersive flight ride from global attractions and hospitality company Pursuit, is bringing its ultimate flying ride to Navy Pier. The exciting attraction will take guests on a multi-sensory journey as they soar over iconic locations and natural wonders from around the globe as part of a cutting-edge entertainment experience.
Anticipated to debut in fall 2023, FlyOver will be located near the Centennial Wheel along Chicago’s vibrant waterfront. The attraction, the first of its kind in Chicago, will feature an immersive storytelling adventure through the film’s signature flight ride theatre and pre-show entertainment.
Modeled after FlyOver attractions in Vancouver, Reykjavik, and Las Vegas, FlyOver in Chicago will open with a signature flight ride in addition to showcasing its growing portfolio of stunning flight ride films. These films enable guests to soar across places like Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon in the American West, the dramatic volcanoes and glaciers of Iceland and the expansive Rocky Mountains in Canada.
A 65-foot spherical screen will surround guests as they glide through flight rides that showcase picturesque landscapes shot in stunning destinations from around the globe. The attraction uses a state-of-the-art moving platform with six degrees of motion that enable guests to feel every sweeping movement of the journey. Special effects including wind, mist and location-specific scents heighten the immersive flight ride as guests hang suspended with their feet dangling above the world’s most stunning natural wonders.
Construction of the flight ride theatre is expected to begin in spring.
