If you’re looking for a new activity in the city centre, make sure that Leicester Simulations on Cank Street is on your list.

From flying in a Spitfire to getting involved in a Formula 1 race day, Leicester Simulations has some amazing experiences suitable for all ages. We went to try it out when they first opened and you can read our review here.

After an extended closure over lockdown they are now fully reopened on all of the experiences. Perfect for group bookings, birthdays, stag parties or work outings, try your hand at shooting down the enemy in your Spitfire cockpit or getting pole position on the F1 race track.

We found out more from the owners in this week’s BID Spotlight.

How would you describe Leicester Simulations for anyone who hasn’t visited?

Leicester Simulations is a new experience, it is unique and great fun for individuals or groups. It is something that has never come to Leicester before.

Which is your favourite simulator that you have available?

Our favourite Simulator is the Spitfire experience, it is absolutely brilliant and everyone who has experienced it has absolutely loved it.

Who is it suitable for?

It is suitable for anyone, we have had from 10 year olds up to 90 year olds on it!

What was the inspiration behind opening the site?

When we were younger there was nothing to do in Leicester, we would spend our weekends travelling away to have a fun experience somewhere and we wanted to bring something fun to Leicester.
