You can even get your Tom Cruise on and go full Maverick in their Top Gun Fighter Jet experience, or travel back in time and prove your heroics in their Battle of Britain simulation. Fancy some time with your feet on the ground? They also offer virtual reality gaming and 4D car racing. The worlds of time and space are your oysters here – all without ever leaving the North East.
