SHORT VERSION: Go there, it's business/family friendly, FUN, has different than things to do and has multiple simulators so you never get bored! LONG VERSION: SimCenter might be the coolest place that I have ever gone. It's better than an arcade, it's more realistic than a video game, ITS A CHILDHOOD DREAM!!!!! The owner is hilarious, a genius, and a... More

Gave husband gift certificate for birthday present to fly 737. Gave a 4 rating because of computer simulation problems but otherwise it was great. I was able to sit in the "passenger" section and watch as the very knowledgeable instructor showed him how to prepare, take off, fly and land the huge jet. Very realistic. For anyone wanting to get... More

This amazing experience is a gem!! The Center was highly recommended to us and fortunately to us we followed the recommendation. It provided us an opportunity to journey through space and see the universe as though we were actually traveling in a space ship and visiting many of the planets. We were also able to "pilot"a Boeing 737 to the... More

We went so my son can fly a 737. He has a lot of experience with airliners and the guide was adjusting the difficulty. It was a great timeand the cockpit was so real looked just like a 737 and the guide was really kind and experienced.. Overall I would go there again anytime, it's an amazing place!

The space exploration simulator was unlike anything I've ever done. Absolutely stunning! As a career educator, I have experienced every type of recreational and educational activity in the Tampa Bay area. The Sim Center experience is unparalleled and top notch. Peter's enthusiasm makes every step a blast. This really is a hidden gem right here in Tampa Bay.

Wife and I came here for the F-16 sim experience but got more than we bargained for. She did the "blow-your-mind" travel through space and I got to fly from a 737-300. I really forgot I was in a simulator at one point. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, and really love what they do. This place is enough a... More

We have a business team of 9 people there and rented out the place for 2 hours. It was a blast. I first went to the full-motion Formula 1 racer. The instructor was great. I never asked him if he ever drove a Formula 1 racer, but he sure knew a lot of facts and was a great coach. It... More

I finally got a chance to check this place out in August. We started out by doing a team mission on the F16s. The instructor gave us an overview of how the simulators worked but kept it simple enough for us to understand. He stayed with us during our mission and gave us good tips. Next we did the 3d...

We surprised our grandson with a fabulous ride into space. Peter has such great knowledge about what is out there beyond earth which made the simulator experience so realistic. We can't wait to go back to try another adventure simulator!

Simulator was very realistic. Sights and sounds in the cockpit were very stimulating. It gave you the impression of actually flying the plane.
