Cannot recommend the SimCenter enough. Drove over from West Palm just for this, and it was totally worth it. The simulator is so in-depth that one visit barely scratches the surface of what has gone into it, and it truly feels like you're flying in a spaceship through the solar system. I'm very impressed and hope to go back at... More

Was visiting Clearwater area on vacation when I saw an ad for the Sim Center. I am a airplane nut and have thousands of hours on FSX at home so this was a dream come true! Peter the owner met me personally at the agreed upon time at the center. I booked the 1 hour 737 experience for $120.00 and... More

Great experience! Peter was awesome so not only was it cool but very educational. My 10yo did it and loved it! The 737 simulator was just like being in a real cockpit! Highly recommend!

Absolutely Incredible! We chose to try the Boeing 737 simulator and it was crazy how realistic it was. I would have loved to try every single one of the simulators there! Will definitely be back!

My wife purchased an hour package for my birthday. As I am a private pilot, she wanted me to take the 1 hour simulator experience as the captain of a Boeing 737. Instead, I decided to break my 1 hour simulation experience into two half hour simulations. The first was a takeoff and landing as captain of the Boeing 737.... More

ONE CAVEAT... If you do not have piloting experience, do not try the 737. You will be confused and bewildered. If you have piloting experience... IT IS FANTASTIC! I held a single engine private license 40 years ago, and still remembered enough to really enjoy the 737 experience. It is not a video game. It is a simulator without the... More

I went for the F1 simulator and was not disappointed. After cutting my teeth at Lime Rock I soon found myself at Monaco circa 1966. The car and circuit were spot on! The handling characteristics of the car were incredibly realistic and the sound of the engine was awesome. I also got to experience the 3D space simulator which utilizes... More

SimCenter is a must if you are in the TAMPA/Clearwater area. My son and I gave it a try because of his interest in aviation. He flew the 737. The owner is incredible! He had so much knowledge that he shared. He made it incredibly fun and interesting. Loved it so much that we went back the next day for... More
