“Really fun for both beginner and advanced gamers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

This is a perfect example of taking a game to the next level. We found 1/2 price coupons for this activity in Living Social. I am an avid gamer and It sounded interesting so I figured what the heck. There were three of us and only 2 simulators so we had to split up our time into segments. The simulators are really just seats in a mock-up of a plane (complete with throttle, yoke and rudder pedals. There is a curved screen and that makes all the difference (180 degree wrap-around view). You can chose either a mission or dogfighting scenario and if you are with friends - go for the dogfighting. You have a 10 minute video orientation for the controls and then it is off to the simulators. A real minus to this location is the lack of isolation from the retail mall. There is a mall train that keeps roaming the halls and between the gawkers and the train noises, it can be very distracting. Our 1/2 hour session proved to be about the right amount of time as it took at least 10 minutes to figure out the flight controls. At least the flight instructor/coach was there to help us thru the rough spots and assist in the kill shots. We had a great time but it sure would have been nice if they had some way to isolate the simulators from the mall din.
