American West at FlyOver Canada

FlyOver Canada is a special theatre that offers various films at different times of the year. The attraction is especially popular because it isn’t just a regular cinema. It’s a multi-dimensional theatre that activates all the senses. Its shows have moving seats, blowing wind and other immersive features.

We went to see The Real Wild West film when it came out in 2021, and it was excellent! It’s similar to the FlyOver America film, but with an emphasis on the US West Coast, plus states like Arizona, Colorado and Nevada.

The new experience takes guests on a wild ride over a variety of environments in the United States, including lively cities, endless prairies, lush rivers and beautiful valleys. The pre-show includes scenes and information about the history of the region, and the “Old Wild West.” The feature film, however, focuses on what the region looks like today.
