FlyOver America – a fully immersive flight experience has opened at the Mall of America. Using the most advanced flight-ride technology, the $20 million attraction provides guests with a breathtaking aerial tour of some of the nation's most popular landmarks and spectacular sights.

A must-see attraction for locals and visitors alike, FlyOver America is a ride unlike anything Minnesota has ever seen, as riders are suspended in the air with feet dangling 10 to 40 feet above the ground and immersed in a giant half-spherical dome screen. During the experience, guests feel like they are truly flying as they enjoy a birds-eye view of varied locations stretching from Alaska to Hawaii to Maine. Special effects including wind, mist and scents add to the immersive nature of the experience.

“We're looking forward to welcoming riders to our first FlyOver America location in the U.S. and we're confident that our guests will walk away feeling energized and inspired,” said Andrew Strang, FlyOver America co-founder. “It's truly a unique opportunity to fully experience all the U.S. has to offer, from remote hidden treasures to well-known national landmarks.”    

Designed by a worldwide team of filmmakers, technicians and creative consultants, FlyOver America was filmed using a state-of–the-art 6k resolution camera mounted on the front of a helicopter. The FlyOver America creative team worked for over a year filming at locations all over the country, including notable Minnesota landmarks Lake Calhoun, Red Wing and the Mississippi River.
