9:00 a.m.- 4:45 p.m.
Prices: $3.50 per person
Group Discount: $2.50 per person
School Group with IMAX® Movie: $2.00 per person

Riders experience flight in a Navy F/A-18 Hornet on a low level mission, including high performance turns and maneuvers.

The five minute motion simulator ride is a multi-sensory experience that combines a movie-like audiovisual presentation using a high-definition projection screen and surround-sound with the motion of the ride compartment. The fully enclosed simulator capsule, which accommodates up to 15 passengers, can move in six directions, allowing you to experience horizontal rolls, longitudinal pitches and vertical climbs.

The simulator runs approximately every 15 minutes from 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. daily. Passengers must be 3 years old or older to ride.

Tickets are $3.50 per person. For groups of 20 people or more, there is a group rate. To receive this rate, please contact our IMAX® Theater at (850) 453-2025 or (888) NAS-IMAX or [click] here to e-mail us. Advance reservations are required for the $2.50 per person price of Simulator tickets; whether the reservations are for Simulator only or for Simulator and an IMAX® Movie.

IMAX® Technical Facts

What's so different about IMAX® ?

Since the earliest days of cinema, filmmakers have realized that the bigger the image, the greater the impact on the viewer.

Imagine the difference between watching a film at home on video and the same film at a normal 35mm cinema. The film might be the same, but the experience couldn't be more different. Well, consider the jump from tradional cinema to IMAX® as a similar, dramatic leap.

The screens in IMAX® Theaters are the biggest in the world!

Up to eight stories high, they are ten times larger than a traditional cinema screen and fill the whole field of human vision.

Made of stretched vinyl, coated with a reflective silver paint, they are mounted taut over a scaffold frame.

Speakers positioned behind the screen complete the total surround-sound system.

Sound is critical to the IMAX® experience. The film soundtracks are delivered through a mighty 15,000 watt digital surround-sound system design.
