Pleasant staff but poor non realistic graphics,all airports seem the same, equipment all a bit tired. No refreshments as promised, broken machine apparently. Any way £160 not worth my 90 minutes experience

I bought my husband a voucher for Christmas for Kai Tak and St. Maartens airports. He really enjoyed the experience. The simulator is so realistic. Will definitely be going back again.
