This is well worth the time and cost. I look forward to doing it again. This is serious adult fun, as well as all ages. The cost is reasonable and I will do it again in a heartbeat.

If you want to experience a real Top Gun experience - you have to go to FLIGHTDECK. Dog Fight was terrific fun and shows the difficulty of a fighter air battle - as well as take off and landing. They also give you an opportunity to do Carrier landings - which is crazy difficult. They also have a superb 737... More

Wonderful experience. Staff was great. Very professional. During my time there my wife dropped her camera and unknown to her the memory chip fell out. We called Flightdeck and their staff made a real effort to find it. It was a small micro chip and the Flightdeck staff found it. It is being returned to us via USPS. Many Thanks... More

Awesome experience. Received as a gift. I'm not a really into this kind of stuff, but it was an absolute blast. From the moment you walk in the door...top notch organization. Steve walked us through the entire process and gave us clear instruction on how to operate the simulation. It was easier than expected, but still challenging. I recommend to... More

It was great. My husband's dream was to be in Top Gun, so this was kinda close. They loved it. Everyone there was so nice. They gave my little kids a toy airplane and a parachute guy which they played with while we waited. Very nice waiting area to hang and watch the guys.

This is the second time I've been here with my family and we all LOVE it! Such a cool experience and everyone had an amazing time. Very real simulation and the cockpit mockups are very detailed. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks for the great time guys!

Recommend not taking children or teens after a full day---too much to take in to fully enjoy.But my sons (18 & 20) loved it.

I've gone to this place three times so far, all with my daughter and nephew; both of whom are very competitive, as I am. The facility is top-notch technology with great personnel there to ensure you have a fun experience. The "simulators" are so realistic you forget you are playing a game. The employees are very knowledgeable, friendly, and ensure... More

This is a place that has been on my bucket list for about three years. just went and did it yesterday It was excellent. It is as close as you can get to flying a real jet. Your instructor will explain all that you need to know ..then you get in the cockpit...the canopy closes and your just minutes from... More
