For those who may have missed it, a thrilling new ride is coming to Navy Pier this year offering a brand-new adventure that will suspend riders above the city’s incredible skyline courtesy of a massive 65-foot spherical screen that surrounds riders and flight motion seats taking them soaring from location to location.
Incorporating leading drone technologies along with impressive aerial shots and first person-narratives, ‘FlyOver’ is an immersive attraction
that “transports guests to the planet’s most epic places through exhilarating flying journeys” and now it is about to land in Chicago.
The exciting 48,000-square-foot FlyOver experience dropped its first trailer at the start of the month and will finally debut at Chicago’s Navy Pier next week on Friday, March 1st!
“Through this immersive storytelling experience, we wanted to capture the rich diversity of Chicagoans, their resiliency, and the vibrant neighborhoods that weave the fabric of such an exceptional city,” said Lisa Adams, COO and Executive Producer of Flyover Attractions.
“Chicago’s flying journey will ultimately engage and entertain viewers with a thrilling immersive urban experience that pushes the boundaries of escape.”
According to the announcement, the iconic Chicago destinations that will be showcased on FlyOver include Navy Pier, North Ave Beach, Lake Shore Drive, the Chicago Theatre, and the Joffrey Ballet.
“From climbing skyscrapers 13,000 ft. high to diving straight down buildings, skimming sidewalks, swooping into iconic landmarks like the Chicago Theatre, to floating through fireworks and more, this experience will be the first of its kind to hit Chicago” FlyOver wrote.
Supporting 60 guests at a time the flight motion seats are engineered to “swoop, dip, and turn” giving guests the feeling while they simultaneously experience a complete sensory immersion using wind, mist, and scents.
Tickets are now on sale and can be found at www.flyoverchicagonavypier.com.
