We booked the kiddie race track for our son's 3rd birthday and had not even visited the center. He just LOVES cars at this age. We were so pleasantly surprised by how much fun he and his friends had, I would recommend this venue hands down! There was also a bounce house we had access to the whole time, and... More

I happened to drive by the SimCenter on a previous trip when it caught my eye with the Boeing 737 Simulator. When I came back on this current trip to Clearwater I made sure I set aside time to go in and try out the B737 Simulator. What an experience. It was as realistic as it gets and Peter is... More

We went during the afternoon and participated in several activities. We did the F-16 simulator, the formula 1 race car simulator and the Virtual reality space simulator. The best one was the 3D virtual reality space tour. AMAZING!! We had personal interaction with a very knowledgeable staff member during each of the simulators. Personalized attention for our small group that... More

I had no idea this was just down the road from us. My girlfriend and I went there and had a great time. The simulators really are amazing and Peter is top notch. I enjoyed the Indy simulator (although it is much more real than video game), but can't wait to come back for the 737 simulator. It looks and... More

While in town on a work trip, a friend of mine and I decided to give these guys a try. I was overly impressed with everything! The owners really went out of their way to accommodate us, including staying late for us. They allowed us to drive the Formula One sim for a few minutes (for free)... Before we chose... More

I was in Tampa with my cousins in February and as an avid player of the computer game Microsoft Flight Simulator X, I realized that this is a place I had to stop. When I got there, The place was cooler that I could've ever expected. Peter has a nice place set up, and is an extremely experienced pilot who... More

My husband and I were driving from St. Petersburg to Spring Hill, FL and decided to stop at the SimCenter. Peter was a terrific guide with much enthusiasm. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to take a trip through space but doubts he or she would ever become an astronaut.

I received an hour long Boeing 737-800 simulator session as a gift. My instructor was the owner, Peter. I was instantly impressed with him and the simulator. Peter, who is a pilot, explained all the systems and answered all my questions. Flying the simulator was fantastic. It reacts to every input as a real 737. Actual current live weather, air... More

Spending two hours in the Boeing 737 simulator was the highlight of a week in the Tampa Bay Area. Mark, my co-pilot/instructor, gave me the exact experience I wanted. We went from pre-flight through shutdown with a short flight and several take-offs and landings. Mark had me handle as much of the work as possible with real instruction on the... More
