The attraction will take guests on a multi-sensory journey as they soar over 22 of the American West’s most spectacular destinations, from the valleys of the Grand Canyon to the peaks of Oregon’s Cascade Volcanic Arc.

“We are thrilled to open Pursuit’s first FlyOver in the United States next month,” said FlyOver Attractions Vice President Lisa Adams. “The immersive nature of this experience is something The Strip has never seen before. You’ll be able to experience many of the world’s most incredible locales without leaving Las Vegas Boulevard.”

A six-minute panoramic pre-show experience created by Moment Factory will be projected across 360-degree wrap-around walls and a central hanging medallion, setting the stage for the adventure ahead. The ride’s film, “The Real Wild West,” developed by some of the most imaginative minds in the entertainment and theme park industries — led by Creative Director and former Disney Imagineer Rick Rothschild — will be projected in 8K high definition on a 52.5-foot spherical screen.

The attractions uses a state-of-the-art moving platform with six degrees of motion as well as wind, mist, and location-specific scents to heighten the immersive flight as guests in flight motion seats are suspended above some of the most picturesque locations in the western United States.

Some of the landmarks in FlyOver Las Vegas include:

“Soaring” in Las Vegas. Not the first ever in US. I see it was developed by a former Imagineer.
