You feel like you’re flying without ever leaving the ground. You soar above more than 20 awe-inspiring American landmarks. The full-motion seats dip, turn, and soar, as if your aircraft was dipping, turning, and soaring. The giant four-story curved screen immerses you in the place. You glide over mountaintops, canyons, valleys, lakes, and other wonders, both natural and manmade. And the wind, mist, scents, and other amazing effects transport your mind and senses. This is the new FlyRide virtual flying experience, opening Sept 4, 2020.

The new FlyRide sits behind Beyond the Lens, an interactive entertainment experience for all ages. Both attractions are owned and operated by Frontpage Attractions, LLC. The FlyRide “techno-tainment” experience was created in partnership with SimEx-Iwerks Entertainment and the MacGillivray Freeman Films.

FlyRide promises pandemic safety measures, including physical distancing and enhanced hygiene and sanitation.

Starting in November, FlyRide will present a seasonal experience, “The Polar Express: Journey to the North Pole.”
