Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children’s runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with this Groupon.

Inside the life-size cockpit of the F-35 simulator, pilots experience the thrill of jetting around in a fighter on one-hour combat missions. Alternatively, virtual pilots can choose to launch flight attendants rather than missiles while flying the Boeing 737 passenger liner with the exact cockpit layout of active commercial jets today. Two friends join forces during the final package’s one-hour mission, during which one friend pilots the F-35 while the other gets behind the stick of the F-16’s aerial arsenal. Working in tandem, the two complete a one-hour combat mission above the virtual clouds. Every flight includes a flight guide who gives step-by-step instructions to start the experience, and works with each client to tailor the session to their skill level.
SimCenter Tampa Bay
To get to space, you could pay tens of millions of dollars and wait years for your trip to actually occur. Or you could simply head to SimCenter Tampa Bay and step into its 360-degree 3-D space simulator.
With the help of virtual reality, aspiring astronauts pilot a futuristic space ship from an orbital carrier and explore our solar system. Adventurers can fly to the International Space Station, zip around the moons of Jupiter, and steer through Saturn's rings. They can also get close to a comet, visit deep space, and tell aliens about any crazy UFO conspiracy theories they've come across.
SimCenter Tampa Bay boasts other simulators, too, including a realistic Boeing 737 simulator that has garnered mentions on the website of Plane & Pilot.
