Visit Minneapolis: FlyOver America at Mall of America

The Mall of America is home to numerous attractions, and one such attraction is FlyOver America.

Truth be told, I've been on similar rides before, and I didn't think FlyOver America would offer anything different, but I was wrong.

FlyOver America was a highlight for me during our multiple visits to the Mall of America.

Prior to the simulated ride, guests can answer trivia questions while waiting in line.

We were then shown a short video about the ride itself, and soon we were buckled in, ready to take off.

This simulation ride had us soaring over and through some of the country's most iconic spots (including Hawaii!).  It really gave the sensation of flying through the air (one of my kids really thought we were up in the air and kept looking down below, and kept clinging on to my husband).  Add to that the wind and mist effects - it was such a neat experience!  We flew over mountains, alongside surfers, and near skyscrapers. 

We had spectacular views of some of America's most popular places - Mount Teton in Wyoming; San Francisco, California; Crater Lake, Oregon, and so much more!  

One of my favorite parts about the ride was when we got up close to actual skiers and bikers and watched them ski down the steep slopes or bike across treacherous terrains.  It was both thrilling and terrifying!

FlyOver America really made me want to travel more and see the various cities and landmarks I have yet to visit.  

After the ride, you'll see a large map in the gift shop of all the places a specially-equipped helicopter flew over to capture the most stunning video.

No photos or videos are allowed while on the ride, so you'll just have to experience this fun ride for yourself.
