Amazing and scary experience. By the way, if you have even minimal experience flying (with an instructor or without), the controls here are much more sensitive than the controls in that Cessna you likely flew - makes it even more scary when it's your turn to try a maneuver! By the way, I honestly couldn't believe they'd let me try anything even though I paid for Top Gun - but yes, you can actually try: they demo it for you first and then talk you through it! As for the video: you have to get it even though it's not cheap: where else can you get a video like that?! I have already watched it like 10 times in less than 2 weeks by myself and with friends. BUT, maybe, you want to really think before you show it to your mother... :-) Also, actually tell your friends in advance what it's like because some can get dizzy from just watching it... Speaking of that, make sure you have some light breakfast - read their FAQ!
