What is FlyOver Canada?
FlyOver Canada — or, in this case, Soar Over Taiwan — is a 4-D experience that is chock-full of special effects. When your ride begins, you are lifted off the ground so your feet are dangling as you fly. You’re buckled into rollercoaster-style seats that are suspended in mid-air. With 360° views of epic sights of Taiwan’s geography and stunning city-scapes as the wind runs through your hair, sea mist hits your face, and scents of the ocean and orchards wash over you.
FlyOver Canada is an experience like no other. I went for my first FlyOver Canada visit in October for a Halloween-themed flight with my family, and we all had so much fun. This time, I left the kids at home and headed to Soar Over Taiwan for the most amazing flight with some friends.
Soar Over Taiwan Flight Experience Details
Before the flight, you’ll watch a pre-show video that introduces guests to the beautiful geography and culture of Taiwan and some of its history, including how the Lunar New Year came to be and is celebrated in Taiwan.
And then: take-off! The 8-minute adventure will take you soaring over Green Island and its seabed and Coast Sleeping Beauty Rock. You’ll fly over Orchid Island, Cape Eluanbi, Sun Moon Lake, Taroko National Park, Ruan’an Bagua Tea Farm, Taipei City, and more. You’ll also get to see an incredible fireworks show straight out of the Yanshui Beehive Fireworks Festival.
The extra special effects — like the scents and water spray — take the experience above and beyond to make riders actually feel like they are experiencing the beauty of Taiwan.
Heads up for locals! FlyOver Canada offers discounted rates for locals, so if you’re a BC resident, you can head here for tickets.
Don’t forget to visit the Flying Whale Cafe after your show as they have a featured Pineapple Cake and Tea for the duration of Soar Over Taiwan.
Soar Over Taiwan Showings
Soar Over Taiwan is available for showtimes from January 16 – February 17, 2020. For tickets visit their website for more details and availability.

Things to do in Vancouver after your FlyOver Canada Experience
If you aren’t from around town, I’d also like to suggest a few other areas in the city. During our girls trip downtown after our Soar Over Taiwan experience we headed into Gastown for chimney cake cones from The Praguery in Gastown. Also be sure to check out Robson Street for some of the best shopping and restaurants.
