Well worth it! The staff was helpful and very friendly. The museum is a good size; not overwhelmingly large and not so small that you get bored immediately. Great experience overall.

The experience in the simulator flying a F15 and B51 was very challenging but exciting.

Flight trainers are a real kick. Great helper and best of luck to him flying F35s for the Israeli Air Force. I'm sure Wings will miss his expertise and enthusiasm! dDid this with my son and grand children, will do it again.

A lot of interesting information and history! The simulator was neat. They give you the option of what plane you want to fly, and give you a chance to fly, take off and land.

The museum is a hidden gem. There are so many planes to look at, and unlike the planes at the Smithsonian, you can actually get up close and touch some of these. Don't miss the beautiful photograph exhibition on the second floor, which will also afford you a better view of some of the many planes suspended from the ceiling.

We had a great time but need more time on the stick in the simulators! Just started to figure it out when our time was up! Got blasted out of the sky more than once but lots of fun. The volunteers around the museum were friendly and willing to answer our questions and give us extra information.

We reserved 2 flight simulator experiences and were very pleased with our flight and trainer. We were able to choose take-offs, landings, maneuvers, and combat. Fun option to do in Denver. The museum was figuratively awesome--just a massive space to house the aircraft in a historical hanger at Lowry AFB!

About Aviation Xtreme at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum

Aviation Xtreme's simulators let land-locked folk fly aboard jetfighters and WWI- or WWII-era aircraft in aerial missions or close-range combat. Aspiring aces strap into the cockpit of their simulator and choose from aircraft such as an F-15A Eagle, F-4 Phantom, or P-51 Mustang. After a short instructional video, they take off into the realistic blue yonder on a chosen mission, which can include an anti-ship mission or ground-attack mission. Each simulator is part of a larger computerized network, allowing friends to go head-to-head in a dogfight or team up to carve clouds into self-portraits.

Aviation Xtreme is housed inside Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, the former locale of the 1930s-built Lowry Air Force Base that closed in 1995, reports Frommer’s. These days, the 150,000-square-foot hangar houses more than four dozen airplanes, including five Century Series fighters and one of two B-1A Lancers on display in the world. The museum is even home to a full-size X-Wing Starfighter from Star Wars and the Harrison Ford Welcome Theater, where the staff starts each day in hiding to surprise Mr. Ford in case he visits.

In addition to aircraft from films, the museum’s space and rocketry exhibits include full-scale replicas of boilerplate spacecrafts used to train Apollo missions to the moon. Others models recreate planes in all their glory, such as the 16-foot Titan II launch vehicle, while hands-on exhibits replicate the conditions of space travel.
