The simulators are full size cockpits with functional instrumentation and six foot screens for out-of-cockpit views. The simulation is somewhat simplified for the average non-pilot in that there is no rudder control, trim tabs, fire suppression system or fuel dump switches. However, experts such as Dick Rutan have stated that it still accurately reproduces how a rocket powered aircraft, such as XCOR's EZ-Rocket, flies.
The control center, located in the waiting area, houses the four computers used for the simulation and trailer control. The four large LCD screens and two smaller ones allow the simulator control officer and those waiting to fly to monitor the progress of the people currently flying. It also allows the simulator control office to changed conditions of the simulation making the flight more or less challenging.
Guests were attracted to the exhibit by playing pre-recorded videos and live footage from inside on two 42" LCD screens. After registering for the OCP sweepstakes and receiving products provided by the sponsors, each guest was able to do a standard three minute flight. This allowed the guests to experience what it would be like to fly the rocket powered aircraft.
