The show was going to run from June 18th until August 15th. Due to its popularity, however, it has been extended and now runs until September 26th. During these dates you can soar over Canada, Hawaii or both!

Hawaii From Above at FlyOver Canada
In addition to its regular multidimensional film about Canada, FlyOver Canada offers different films and experiences throughout the year. Hawaii From Above is the newest show in the series.
The theatre hosts special events during Halloween and Christmas at other times of the year. From time to time the attraction releases new films featuring famous global locations too. Past films have featured countries like Iceland, China and the United States. This year, the new film is all about Hawaii.
Hawaii From Above showcases the iconic Pacific islands in all their glory. Viewers get to see the state’s breathtaking volcanoes, forests and beaches.
What separates FlyOver Canada from other attractions is its ability to activate all your senses. Viewers won’t just see Hawaii this summer – they’ll be able to feel the environment too. Wind blows in people’s faces and the smells of Hawaii are present too. It feels like you’ve teleported directly to the islands!
The same as other FlyOver Canada experiences, before diving into the new main feature, there is a pre-show that showcases unique Hawaiian traditions. Notable portions of the film include scenes of Haleakala Volcano, Molokini Crater and Manta Rays in Maui.
Similar to previous films, viewers must be at least 4’2″ in height to participate. Children aged 12 and younger must be accompanied by a person who’s 14 years of age or older as well.

2021 Prices and Times
Like FlyOver Canada’s previous specialty films, Hawaii From Above is a limited-time offering. The theatre only plays it from June 18th until September 26th in 2021, so make sure to check it out while you can!
In a typical summer FlyOver Canada is usually open daily from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm. In 2021, however, beginning in June, it’s open from noon until 6:00 pm on weekends and from noon until 8:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Starting in July it’s open until later, likely until 8:00 pm. Exact times and other details, however, are subject to change.
Films last for around 15 to 20 minutes. In the summer of 2021 the regular FlyOver Canada film and new Hawaiian one alternate every half hour. The Canadian film starts on the hour every hour and every half hour. The Hawaii From Above film starts at both quarter past and quarter to every hour. If you see both films you simply remain in your seat for the second show.
Ticket prices vary based on the numbers of projected visitors to FlyOver Canada. As of mid-June 2021, adult tickets range between $23 and $26. Prices tend to be higher on Fridays and weekends. Students (ages 13 to 21) and seniors pay $6 less than adults. Meanwhile, kids under the age of 13 pay $10 less than the adult price.
TIP: Book in advance online to get the lowest prices. If you buy your tickets at the gate on the day you’ll pay slightly more. Also, if you see both Hawaii from Above and the regular FlyOver Canada film at the same time you’ll save close to 20% compared to buying the two tickets separately.

Tips and Advice
Below are some suggestions to help you make the most out of your FlyOver Canada experience.
TIP #1: If you’ve never been to the theatre at Canada Place, or have never been to Hawaii but want to, be sure to check out this attraction. It’s highly recommended!
TIP #2: At the end of the show don’t forget to see the photos of you and your friends or family. They’ll take a shot of your group at the start and you can buy the souvenir photos if you want at the end. You can choose from a few different background scenes (as you’ll see we did in a couple of photos in this article).
TIP #3: Don’t forget to bring a face mask. You’ll need to wear one during the show, at least in the summer of 2021. If you forget though you can buy some really nice souvenir ones in the gift shop.
Have a Hawaiian Holiday in Vancouver
TIP #4: The world is returning to normal after over a year of COVID-related restrictions. This year especially, instead of travelling far, spend your holiday dollars in the local community. Vancouver-based businesses in the tourism and hospitality industries need your help! Visit Hawaii via FlyOver Canada, and then spend a night in a local hotel, or at least check out an area restaurant and other sights!
TIP #5: While in the area, go for a stroll around Canada Place or a walk along the waterfront in Coal Harbour. Combine your trip to FlyOver Canada with a visit to Imagine Van Gogh at the Vancouver Convention Centre, take in a walking tour with Forbidden Vancouver, or play an adventure game from Vancouver Mysteries. Don’t just fly over Hawaii and then go straight home. Make a holiday out of your trip to downtown Vancouver!
TIP #6: If wanting to make a real vacation out of your trip to Hawaii From Above and wanting to stay overnight in the area, be sure to check out StayVancouverHotels Deals. Stayvancouverhotels.com is a website that offers competitive rates plus bonus perks at three dozen or so hotels in Vancouver’s downtown core (including a number within just a few blocks of FlyOver Canada).
