Took the kids and they loved it, great experience. Easy to book, and very good set up. They were very well explained how to get set up and the smile on their faces was priceless.

What a great adrenaline high after 30 minute flight into Sydney and landing. Very real experience. Great instructor and good value in my book. Think I'll fly London to Paris next time - need more practice on instrument flying

We visited In May 2016. This is incredibly good fun. My father did the flying and the family watched on, and every one had a terrific time. The instructor was very knowledgeable. The graphics are amazing. I highly recommend this.

There is nearby street parking and metered parking depending on the time of day. At times, a vacant parking spot could be difficult to find. I enjoyed the simulator experience.
