Fantasy of Flight


At this state-of-the-art aviator's playground, you can experience the thrill of flying without ever leaving the ground. In addition to a large collection of historic aircraft (including the world's last airworthy four-engine flying boat, the Short Sunderland), the museum features eight Fightertown flight simulators. You can also walk through a thrilling multimedia presentation that immerses you in the history of flight from man's earliest attempts through the dogfights and bombing missions of World Wars I and II. Fantasy of Flight is open daily from 10 AM to 5 PM. Admission costs $28.95 for adults, $26.95 for seniors age 55+, and $14.95 for children ages 6 and up. You'll find it just off I-4 at Exit 21 in Polk City. If all this flying has worked up an appetite, you can chow down at the Compass Rose Diner, an attractive family restaurant with the Art Deco appearance of 1930s airports. It's right there at Fantasy of Flight.
