Flight City @ YVR simulator

Anyone have any experiences or reviews with this place?

I believe this is the one next to McDonalds at the end of the south runway.

No motion = just a really fancy home-style flight simulator setup.

Good point, but you get what you pay for. 60 mins in full motion = $$$$$$

Oh for sure! Out here in Toronto there's a couple of places offering similar products but none of em are full motion. One of them does have one of those fancy racing seats that has some motion but nothing like the real deal.

My P3D V2 setup at home is better than this. I wouldn't waste money.

I'll draw a nice 100m no go zone around any simulator thanks.

But like others said, it's zero motion, and their only picture of a "simulator" is of a PMDG MS Flight Simulator 747-400 Setup, not exactly what I would expect if they had a fixed based trainer. It's probably just an IPT with some sort of visual system...
