The Flyover Immersive Flying Experience

Real people at real places are featured during the films at Flyover Las Vegas.

No artificial intelligence is used in the films making the footage from the fixed lens, incapable of zooming from the helicopter and drones even more impressive!

The ride’s motion seats are engineered to give you the feeling of flight. The motion seats can swoop, dip, and turn for an unforgettable experience.

Flyover Las Vegas has a 52.5-foot-wide spherical screen that surrounds you for the entire experience and enhances the incredible visuals.

The wraparound screen allows you to access an insider’s look at the vast prairies and untamed landscape during the unmistakable feeling of flight.

It’s easy to get caught up in the moment during your flight soaring over incredible landscapes but try to remember to breathe to take in all of the authentic scents along the way.

The flight ride portion is 8-10 minutes depending on the film and the three immersive experiences total 30 minutes.
