Unleashing the thrill seeker in all of us!

At the Armed Forces History Museum, the 7-passenger futuristic capsule runs animated video programs with mild to aggressive motion that simulates thrilling races, rides and educational journeys.  Heart pounding action keeps riders on the edge of their seat.  This virtual voyager is similar to those found at Universal Studios.  The fun and the learning here at the museum never stops!

    Rode the Desert Storm ride with the grandkids! It is great!!! They absolutely loved it and probably would have rode them all. I thought that type of ride was only available at the big amusement parks in Orlando. The entire museum is an experience that defies description.

      The Motion Theater Simulator really is incredible. With ten different rides to choose from, there is one for everyone. Glad you got to experience it. Thanks for coming out and visiting the museum and for taking the time to post your comment on the web-site.
