WHAT IS THE FLYER AND 7D EXPERIENCE
Located on Pier 39, the Flyer is a 28-seat theater that uses the latest multi-sensory technology to take you on a simulated aerial tour of San Francisco.
With a massive screen, motion seats, and other special effects, this 20-minute ‘flight’ takes you over San Francisco’s iconic skyline, past Coit Tower and the Golden Gate Bridge.
You’ll zip through San Fran’s famous Chinatown, wind your way down curvy Lombard Street and soar through the majestic Redwood National Forest.
This engaging experience is especially good for kids and families.
Also at Pier 39, you can also take the 7D Experience, a virtual roller coaster that takes you on a night journey where you use play guns to battle werewolves, zombies, and evil robots.
If you take both rides with a combo ticket, you can save quite a bit of money for double the fun.
