Definitely coming back to this place, it's very unique and you won't find anything similar anywhere. We all had fun, my husband probably liked it the most because he was able to go to the airplane simulator which simulates the take off and landing of a commercial size place and it's pretty cool, it's like doing it for real. They... More

It was wonderful to share an unusual experience with my grown son. The space simulator was incredible. Our pilot was extremely knowledgeable and the views were "out of this world". The facility was large, clean and comfortable. The owner has a true love for the experiences that he offers and that is a huge plus. We can't wait to go... More

My second time there and they did not disappoint again! This time we did a short Formula 1 ride and tried the new Space Simulator. Whatever these guys do, they do it with all their hearts and it makes a difference. The space sim is a real eye-opener and so educational! Right before us a big group of summer camper... More

My 17 year old son and I enjoyed the experience tremendously, The owner Peter was great at explaining everything, he even gave a walk through showcasing the other simulators. Whether you try the Boeing 737, F-16 Fighter Jet, Formula 1 Racing, or Space travel it is well worth the cost. We will definitely return! This experience is a must for... More

My 19 y.o son and I both enjoyed the two simulators that we tried out. Andrew was the technician that assisted him with keeping the Ferrari car on the track. It's really amazing when you see the cockpit and controls that go into this computer generated car. It's not that easy to keep a vehicle on the track at 150... More

My younger brother and I did this and we had so much fun. I'm 16 and I thought I knew about space but I knew nothing. This experience put me in aw because of what I saw. It was great and I would love to go back.

A recent visit to SimCenter Tampa resulting from birthday gift certificate from my very understanding wife afforded me an awesome experience "flying" a F-16 combat jet in an authentic flight simulator. The one-hour instructor-guided flight gave me a chance to take-off, land and shoot down the bad guys with virtually the same kind of military and airline life-size simulators used... More

I gave my husband the space sim as a gift - afterward, he said it was the best birthday present he's ever had (and he's 68). It's historic, it's real, it's educational and just plain fun. School age children would also benefit by seeing the relationships between the planets in our solar system. A wonderful gift that's truly "different". The... More
