I purchased this for my husband last year for Christmas through Groupon for two people at a much cheaper price then $70 and he had loved it. Yes, it is projected on wrap around screen via laptop but as other reviewer stated as not being avid gamer is a lot of fun. My husband does not enjoy video games but... More

this place was terrible. The price was absolutely outrageous. I paid $70 for my friend and I have to have this "experience" which was really graphics from the 90s on a Windows 97 looking Dell. While we were the only ones there, our 30 minutes was constantly interrupted because the person in charge was bouncing between my "simulator" and my... More

All the reviews positive and negative seem accurate. Be informed prior to arrival will alleviate disappointment and maximize enjoyment. Pros: a unique experience at an affordable cost. Easy to schedule and walk in appointments are available. Staff was friendly and helpful. Cons: there is a museum entrance fee as well as the simulator fee. It is a ultimately just a... More

I had a fine time flying an F4-E Phantom. I highly recommend it Especially if you are not an avid gamer who demands the best graphics and toy's. Just simple fun for 30 min.

The sim is just ordinary PC flight simulator software projected onto a screen that wraps 180 degrees. The resolution was hardly impressive, and the throttle and stick are just your typical plastic controllers that come with any old slight simulator software. Other than the 180 degree screen there is nothing remotely unique about the simulator. We paid for 30 minutes... More

My two sons (9 and 12) and I took a shot at Aviation Xtreme after visiting Wings Over The Rockies (which is worth the trip if you haven't seen it). After explaining we were newbies, the flight instructor (Mike) set us up for a 3-way aerial dog fight. The setup was not entirely state of the art (networked PCs with... More

My husband and son participated in this "adventure" although it was cool, They both agreed that the price was a bit high for the experience which was just a little more than using a game console on a very large screen. A neat experience nonetheless but having experienced many simulator type rides and such..this fell a little flat.

As others noted, this is a cockpit and projection screen that does NOT move. The rudder pedals , stick, and throttle do make this more interesting than a regular video game, and you do get a 180 degree field of view. They offer several missions and aircraft (we used the F-15 simulator for dogfighting and another person in our group... More

First of all, only one person was staffing the place. Second, we had a reservation, when we arrived all simulators were being used and we were told he was running behind. Didn't even check our reservation. Lastly, when we did get into the 'simulator' which not really a simulator and as Neal B said, "If this was 1992, this place... More

Just experienced the Aviation Xtreme flight simulator with my nephew. Instead of spending your money on this, I would recommend buying Microsoft Flight Simulator '98, a Windows XP computer, and a cheap LCD projector and doing it yourself, because that's essentially what you're getting here. If this were the '90s, it might be more acceptable, but in this age of... More
