Pursuit to open exhilarating flight ride experience in Reykjavik, Iceland modelled after Vancouver’s Top Rated FlyOver Canada VANCOUVER – Pursuit, a business unit of Viad Corp, announced today that it will expand its flight ride theater concept into Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik. Modelled after Pursuit’s highly-successful FlyOver Canada attraction, FlyOver Iceland will provide guests with an exhilarating virtual flight experience over the awe-inspiring country of Iceland. The new attraction is expected to open in 2019. 
 
David Barry, president of Pursuit, said, “Creating unforgettable experiences is at the core of what we do. FlyOver Canada has welcomed over 2 million visitors in under five years, captivating Vancouver locals and visitors alike with the feeling of flight as they experience the very best of Canada.
