Bought this for our son (aged12) - he absolutely loved it! Great that we could also sit behind him and watch too. He tried the fighter jet today but we will definitely be back to try others. Thanks for a fantastic experience for him 😀

Took my brother in law for his birthday and he loved every minute of it! He has special needs and the gentleman assisting him (sorry forgot his name) was amazing in differentiating the instructions whilst praising him for each manoeuvre. Already looking at booking again!

Our 11 year old grandson chose a session on the F35 fighter while I chose the Spitfire. Grandson rated his the best experience of his week with us, and I want to return to the Spitfire simulator. Well worthwhile.
