Have you been to FlyOver Canada?  If not, you need to check it out.  We enjoyed a visit in the summer and returned at the beginning of January to take in the Christmas version.

Our boys loved FlyOver Canada Christmas we actually ended up visiting the attraction 2 days in a row!  From the building being decorated (with snow, Christmas trees and ornaments), to the actual pre-show, boarding area, and attraction itself being Christmas-themed, FlyOver Canada Christmas is heaps of fun!

FlyOver Canada is a 4-D experience.  Not only are your senses of hearing and sight amazed, your sense of touch and smell are also stimulated.  When flying through clouds a light mist flies in your face, when flying through snow, that same mists happens but it is cold.  The flight is 8 minutes and you literally “fly” over Canada.  The floor disappears, your feet swing in the air, and you experience Canada from a few thousand feet up.

FlyOver Canada Christmas comes to a close on January 5th.  However, the non-Christmas themed version returns January 6th.  FlyOver Canada operates 7 days a week from 10am – 9pm.  To find FlyOver Canada head to the VERY BACK of Canada Place.  There are signs directing you.  If you get lost their is a kiosk at the entrance to Canada Place.

Take your kids and show them the majesty of our country.  Oh, important reminder, kids must be 40″ tall to ride. Understandably, the operators are very particular about the height restrictions.  Our VERY tall 3 year old just made the cut.

Burgoo BistroAfter enjoying FlyOver Canada Christmas, we took our boys to Burgoo Bistro.  It has been many years since I’ve been to Burgoo but I had a craving for comfort food.  I was astounded by the kid-friendly nature of Burgoo (the last time I went I didn’t have kids).  The kids are given crayons and colouring pages upon arrival.  More impressive are the menu options.  For $10 the kids can have a grilled cheese sandwich (which is RIDICULOUSLY good) and a bowl of soup (anything from butternut squash with hazelnuts to crab bisque).  Alternatively for $10 they can have a bowl of soup and a salad.  Or for $5 they can have just the sandwich or mac & cheese.  The food is fantastic and the servers are large.  We all shared the brie fondu.  The kids LOVED getting to use their own fondu fork.  I can’t sing the praises of Burgoo enough.  We had such a great time we went 2 days in a row.  As I sit here writing this blog, I’m craving the brie fondu again.  I wonder if I can convince the family to return again….
