“Epic Air Combat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Went as a treat on Holiday and had a superb time. I could definitely have spent several more hours / days there if I was on my own. The most fun you can have with a flight suit on. One tip though, ask questions in the briefing, The instructor was good but went over the flight controls quite quickly.

Cant wait to go back one day.

“My Son was in heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

My husband took my 12 yr old to fly the commercial jets. He had a blast!! The instructor was extremely impressed that my son never crashed the 737 and gave him a little extra instruction and flight time. One of the highlights

“Super picky teen girl rates it 10 out of 10”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Everybody in the family loved this place. This is an all ages, worthwhile, fun experience for the whole family to do together. It could also be an original date idea when dinner and drinks are just too expected and boring. I think it's also kind of a great idea for a family reunion or bachelor/bachelorette party.

“Great for Young and Old Flight Sim Fans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

this place is off the hook if you are one of those Gamers that loved the flight sim programs, you get a real preflight briefing and your straped into the cockpit of a F16 and go through Radio Comms for take off and some flight training and then your off to fight in the skys! There used to be a location back in the days of "EL TORO MCAS off Lake Forest Drive Called "Top Gunn" it was a great place to go on weeknights for half price flights ( "Happy Hour" ) im sure this place will have sim deals, the other great thing about this place is that you can join a Squadron and become a regular member and get deals on Flight time. Its worth stopping by and checking out.
