|About these ratings|
For all the would-be pilots out there, all those Top Gun "Danger Zone" fans, the Flightdeck Air Combat Center is for you. Here you can pretend you're taking off, dogfighting, and completing death-defying aerial maneuvers in flight simulators that make if feel real. According to its website, "Flight-gear, training and in-flight instruction are provided to ensure a challenging aviation-themed adventure that you won't forget."
And in case you were wondering, visitors say it's nothing like a computer game. A Yelp.com user says, "From walking into the facility to sitting into the mock cockpit, the feeling and immersion that the staff at flightdeck provide is so awesome."
You'll find it less than five miles south of central Anaheim. Keep in mind that you'll need to make reservations at least a week in advance. If you're planning on visiting with a large group, you should book even earlier. It's closed on Mondays, but Tuesday through Sunday, there are flight times that range from 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Basic 60-minute flights cost $69, but there are other packages that cost as much as $549.
