Flyover—an immersive ride experience that uses drone technology, flight-motioned seats, and a large spherical screen—opened on Chicago’s Navy Pier in early March. There are currently five other Flyover attractions in Bloomington, Minnesota; Las Vegas, Nevada; Reykjavik, Iceland; Toronto, Ontario; and Vancouver, British Columbia.

“Flyover is the first attraction of its kind in Chicago and is focused on capturing the rich diversity of Chicagoans and the vibrant neighborhoods that make up the city,” says Derek Poitras, general manager of Chicago’s Flyover. “Flyover’s signature Chicago journey is shown on an impressive 65-foot-tall spherical screen with the flight-motion seats engineered to swoop, dip, and turn, giving guests the feeling of flight. The attraction will transport 61 guests at a time, with complete sensory immersion using wind, mist, and scents, as fliers hang suspended.”

Discounts are available for groups of 15 or more, and planners can arrange tailored team-building activities. The ride, through multiple segments, shows visuals of notable Chicago buildings, neighborhoods, people, events, history, and culture.
