Experience Flight without Leaving the Ground
The Museum features two exciting flight simulation experiences for visitors. In the 13-seat 4D-X simulator, participants experience state-of-the-art 3-D visual excitement, special environmental effects, and plenty of motion. Each ride is approximately five minutes in duration and costs $5.00 per person. For those who wish to take control of the flight experience themselves, there's X-Pilot. In our 2-seat X-Pilot simulators, you take the controls for a smooth and easy ride, or a ride full of loops and rolls. You choose—you're the pilot. X-Pilot is $8.00.
Or try your hand on our hang gliders in the Flight Zone, a favorite with kids where you sit in a hang gliding harness and try to land as close as you can to a target.
In our Space Gallery you'll have an opportunity to pilot an Apollo lunar lander or bring the Space Shuttle home after a mission orbiting the Earth.
Lastly, match skills with an astronaut as you try to link up with the Hubble Space Telescope in our Manned Manuevering Unit simulators in the Rendezvous in Space: A Tribute to Pete Conrad exhibit.
