If you love planes and always wanted to fly a P51 Mustang or a Warthog and rain led down then this simulator is for you. The staff made every flight minuet worth the value. Do not miss this opportunity to enjoy actual flying or as close as you can get without thousands in flight training and a barf bag!

Our visit was fun, the instructors were helpful. This was something different to do with the kids, I recommend you get the hour long package, just as we were getting the hang of it, our time was up.

We loved the whole experience. The only thing that needs some improvement would be the amount of instruction you get before you "fly". Other than being really confused at first it was so much fun because we got to "shoot down" the other people in our group and it was pretty realistic with the screens that wrapped around. The museum... More

Took my eight year old and although the instructor was extremely nice and helpful the simulator was way to advanced for him to have fun - graphics were not that great.

I came here with my brother-in-law and 2 nephews for a fun little trip while they were in town. I wasn't expecting a level D flight simulator experience but I was hoping for a lot more than this. As others have said, the displays are terrible, not only because the graphics are poor but they're projecting a flat image onto... More

Thank you for the review and we appreciate your feedback. We have had warping software since we opened three years ago, I don't know why it was not used during your visit. Since a vital part of the visual system was not used during your visit, please accept our apologies, and a free simulation experience. Contact us a info@aviationxtreme.com to... More

I purchased this for my husband last year for Christmas through Groupon for two people at a much cheaper price then $70 and he had loved it. Yes, it is projected on wrap around screen via laptop but as other reviewer stated as not being avid gamer is a lot of fun. My husband does not enjoy video games but... More

this place was terrible. The price was absolutely outrageous. I paid $70 for my friend and I have to have this "experience" which was really graphics from the 90s on a Windows 97 looking Dell. While we were the only ones there, our 30 minutes was constantly interrupted because the person in charge was bouncing between my "simulator" and my... More

All the reviews positive and negative seem accurate. Be informed prior to arrival will alleviate disappointment and maximize enjoyment. Pros: a unique experience at an affordable cost. Easy to schedule and walk in appointments are available. Staff was friendly and helpful. Cons: there is a museum entrance fee as well as the simulator fee. It is a ultimately just a... More

I had a fine time flying an F4-E Phantom. I highly recommend it Especially if you are not an avid gamer who demands the best graphics and toy's. Just simple fun for 30 min.
