    What to Expect
    Make your way to Nickelodeon Universe, at the center of the Mall of America, and present your voucher at the FlyOver America entrance.

    Strap into a suspended chair in front of the spherical screen, then take off on your cross-country flight. Special effects like mist, scents, and wind combine with the chair’s motion to give the sensation of flying or gliding across the terrain. Spot familiar landmarks and rugged wilderness; the FlyOver America experience was created from 50 hours of helicopter footage for the most realistic flying sensation.

    After your flight, find the places that you’ve passed on your 10-minute journey on a wall-mounted map of the United States—FlyOver America soars from the Statue of Liberty to National Parks, the Chicago skyline and west coast scenery. Souvenir photos of your group are available to purchase.

    Note: Children must be at least 40 inches (102 cm.) tall to enter FlyOver America.

    Great experience--we did both America and Canada. They say it's 15 minutes long each, but it feels like much less. At the end there's a map and it tells you where the scenes were (i.e. Liberty Island, New York)--however it would have been cool to have the location flashed on

    They offered to programs, one to fly over America and another to fly over Canada. My wife and I purchased tickets to see both for a total of $60 for about 20 minutes. It really does feel like you are flying... they spray a mist of water on you when you are going through the
