About the experience
Prior to the FlyOver experience, the attraction features a stunning pre-show that explores the roles of nature, time and humankind on the island, featuring volcanoes, glaciers, Vikings, trolls and more. Moment Factory designed these multi-sensory spaces, working closely with FlyOver Iceland’s creative director Rick Rothschild, creating a unique introduction and first taste of what awaits the guests next.
The flight ride features a ride system with six degrees of motion, multi-sensory special effects and a 20-meter spherical screen that provides guests with an unparalleled flight across Iceland. Special effects, including wind, mist and scents, together with the ride’s smooth motion and impressive real-life visuals, create an unforgettable experience, allowing guests to be carried away on a breathtaking journey.
The attraction is the first flight ride experience in Iceland and is already in second place in TripAdvisor’s “Things to do in Reykjavik” ranking.
