2019-08-11 Flyover Canada and Vancouver Aquarium

We started our day by walking down to Canada Place.  Canada Place is situated on the Burrard Inlet waterfront of Vancouver. 

I visited FlyOver Canada which uses state of the art technology to show some of Canada’s most wonderful sights.  I was hung suspended with my feet dangling in front of a 20 metre spherical screen.  The film shown gave me an amazing 8 minute journey across Canada from east to west.  There were special effects including wind, mist and scents which combined with the ride’s motion to create quite an experience.  A particularly pleasurable moment was when I saw the Rocky Mountaineer in one shot.  FlyOver Canada is not for people who do not like heights but this does not apply in my case.

Afterwards Ruth and I went back out to Stanley Park to visit Vancouver Aquarium.  We enjoyed the exhibits but a wet Sunday was not an ideal time to visit.  The place was heaving.  I didn't take many pictures because most of the exhibits were behind glass.


We ended our day sampling the hotel pool and hot tub.

  1. Have watched some videos of Flyover Canada and it looks great. Kind of IMAX crossed with a rollercoaster. One coming to Toronto in 2022!!
