Received an invite to experience the iconic natural wonders, picturesque scenery and breathtaking views of Iceland at FlyOver, which is a multi-sensory attraction located on The Las Vegas Strip (located right next to Hard Rock Cafe on Las Vegas Boulevard). Hold on to your seat when you go, since motion is a very effective aspect added to the experience. Last night, my guest (comedy magician Fielding West) and I enjoyed the realistic flight experience – and held on to our seats!
Riders glide over nearly 30 different landmarks and locations throughout the Icelandic region including the Aldeyjarfoss waterfall, the Markarfljótsgljúfur Canyon, Þrídrangar Island, the Mælifell volcano, the Dyrhólaey cliffs and more.
FlyOver uses a state-of-the-art moving platform with six degrees of motion to make visitors feel as though they are soaring, dipping and diving like a bird. Shown in stunning 8k resolution on a massive 52.5ft screen, location-specific mists, scents and wind fully immerse guests in the action taking place all around them on a spherical screen.
The film was created by some of the entertainment industry’s most inventive minds, including creative director and former Walt Disney Imagineer Rick Rothschild and Cannes Lion Award-winning film director Dave Mossop. Rothschild and Mossop joined with helicopter pilot Jón Kjartan Björnsson.
During the month of April, guests can enter to win a trip for two to Iceland when they take the ride.
