Holidays at FlyOver America


Nov 24, 2017 to Jan 2, 2018
10:00 AM until 09:30 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Wondering what to do over the holidays with your family and friends this year? How about flying thousands of miles across America, chasing Santa Claus’ elves and visiting Santa’s Workshop at the North Pole? FlyOver® America at Mall of America® will again transform into a magical winter wonderland this holiday season in Nickelodeon Universe®. From November 24, 2017 to January 2, 2018, guests will help Santa Claus search for his missing elves during an exhilarating and wildly immersive flight across America and up to the North Pole.   


The FlyOver®America attraction is a virtual flight ride experience that takes you, your family and friends on a breathtaking aerial journey over some of America’s most spectacular landscapes (from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty) using the latest in-flight ride technology. Guests sit suspended with their legs dangling 10 to 40 feet above the ground in specialized ride vehicles, as they move in concert with the film playing on a four-story spherical screen. With the addition of special effects (scent, mist, wind), riders actually feel like they are flying!


As part of this 2017 holiday edition of FlyOver America, the ride’s entrance has been transformed into a Christmas-themed wonderland, with holiday decorations, music, lights and more. Fast becoming a Christmas tradition in Minnesota, FlyOver America is the perfect way to ring in the holiday season with your entire family. Here’s a video trailer for the Holiday edition: https://youtu.be/td_v_lf87jw. FlyOver America has earned 4 ½ out of 5 stars from 555 reviewers on TripAdvisor and 4 ½ out of 5 stars on Yelp – with fans posting comments like “definitely two thumbs up” and “you just have to experience it for yourself. If you’re in the Mall of America, you can’t skip over FlyOver America.”


Beginning November 24, tickets for adults ages 13 and up are $18.95, while tickets for children ages 12 and under are $14.95 (plus tax). Children must be at least 40” (3 ft. 4 in) to participate on the ride, and children 8 and under must be accompanied by an adult or guardian aged 14 years or older.
