Gave my Dad a certificate for an hour in the 737 simulator for Christmas 2014. My Dad is a retired engineer who is now elderly, partially deaf and a highly functional brain aneurysm survivor. Dad always wanted to be a pilot in his youth but never could with medical issues and only took fling lessons in college. All I can... More

I can't say enough about the authenticity of the Boeing 737 simulator. Peter was an excellent "copilot". In reality, you need him to help you do most of the work! The amount of time and effort that has been taken to make the simulator as authentic as possible is evident from the moment you sit down into the left seat.... More

Something is fishy with all these reviews. I cannot recommend. No one to greet us, not very clear instructions once you’re there - nor what it is you’re paying for. There was one young man who was very helpful, but the owner and his wife/girlfriend who were supposed to show us how to use the equipment seemed busy with each... More

We spent a couple of hours here with my family and we really had a lot of fun. The simulators are very realistic and it's been and awesome and unique experience. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. What a great activity for a rainy day Clearwater. I would highly recommend this place.

We took our son there several months ago and he has been itching to go again. Santa brought him a gift certificate and again it was a great experience for him. The staff is wonderful and extremely helpful with tips on how to do or correct things during your experience making it all the better. We will definitely be going... More

Our son comes to visit us a few times a year and with each visit he asks us to schedule something that is exciting and adrenaline pumping. For his last visit we got a gift certificate to SimCenter, hopeful that it would fill his thrill seeking needs. It did indeed and we were impressed with how happy he was with... More

I have taken my 14 year old daughter to Simcenter a few times and she loves it. The staff is helpful and will teach you a lot about flying in a short time. This is a cant miss destination if you want something new and exciting to do.

I've tried three of the simulators and they are all a blast. I have been a flight simulator fan from the early years of computers as well as a former military pilot and was excited to experience the Boeing 737, F16, and F35 simulators. All three simulators provided unique and fun experiences and the working cockpits add to the realism.... More

I am 81 years old and a grandmother. I have always wanted to learn how to fly. I shared this experience at the sim center with my adult grandson. He has some time in the air ( in a smaller plane, of course). So I gifted him with an hour in the 737. I loved every moment from the take... More
