4 MIN READ – Flyover, the immersive attraction that transports guests to the planet’s most epic places through exhilarating flying journeys, will officially debut at Chicago’s Navy Pier on March 1. 

Located within Chicago’s landmark waterfront Navy Pier, the multi-sensory experience, which incorporates leading drone technologies along with impressive aerial shots and first person-narratives, will showcase the city from perspectives never seen before.

From climbing skyscrapers 13,000 ft. high to diving straight down buildings, skimming sidewalks, swooping into iconic landmarks like the Chicago Theatre, to floating though fireworks and more, this experience will be the first of its kind to hit Chicago.

“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, Flyover Attractions. “Chicago’s flying journey will ultimately engage and entertain viewers with a thrilling immersive urban experience that pushes the boundaries of escape.”

Flyover will also feature inspiring Chicagoans to help tell the stories behind the people and places that make the city distinctive and spectacular. Among these influential people include acclaimed musician Corey Wilkes, Walt Whitman from the Soul Children’s Choir and Wrigley Field announcer, Jeremiah Paprocki. In addition, some of the iconic Chicago destinations that are highlighted within the immersive experience include Navy Pier, North Ave Beach, Lake Shore Drive, the Chicago Theatre, and the Joffrey Ballet.

Flyover’s signature Chicago journey will be shown on an impressive 65-foot spherical screen with flight motion seats engineered to swoop, dip and turn, giving guests the feeling of flight. The attraction will transport 60 guests at a time, with complete sensory immersion using wind, mist and scents, as fliers hang suspended.

The 48,000 square-foot immersive flying journey is located on the Navy Pier, directly across from the Chicago Children’s Museum at the west entrance of Navy Pier. The new Chicago experience will mark the fourth Flyover experience for Pursuit, which also includes Flyover attractions in Las Vegas, Reykjavik, Iceland, and Vancouver, Canada.
