Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum has added a full motion flight simulator to the Museum guest experience.
This premier simulator attraction employs MaxFlight's patented full motion, 360 degree pitch, roll and spin technology that immerses riders in a realistic virtual flight scenario. Riders choose from three different ride options: Combat Flight Simulator, Flight Simulator, and Virtual Rollercoaster:
- Combat Flight Simulator option: Aircraft starts in flight—object is to find and destroy enemy using on-screen radar.
- Flight Simulator option: Aircraft starts on runway-pilot must take off (landing is optional). Experience flight performance from a variety of aircraft.
- Virtual Rollercoaster option: Thrill level – Extreme! Rider experiences a preprogrammed virtual rollercoaster with various turns, loops, drops and climbs.
"The MaxFlight simulator is an exciting new addition to our Museum, and based on the reactions of our test riders it promises to be popular with guests of all ages," says Museum Interim Executive Director John Rasmussen.
Guests will have the option to add a flight simulator experience with admission to the Museum, for an additional $8. Museum Members receive discounted simulator admission at $6.
Additionally, the Museum is launching a contest to name the new simulator. Name suggestions can be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org through May 31, 2018. The winner will be chosen by a jury made up of Museum staff and volunteers, and will receive an Individual Museum membership good for one year, and two tickets to the new Flight Simulator.
