Received a 60 minute B737 flight sim for a birthday present. Spent a thoroughly enjoyable hour flying from Newcastle to the Lakes and back under expert assistance from Amanda. I would highly recommend this experience to any age group and will definitely be back. Nigel

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 😀
