Narrated by Paul Walker of the Fast and the Furious franchise, Air Racers will take you on a breathtaking dive in Northern Nevada’s “Valley of Speed.” You’ll experience, from inside the cockpit, the intensity and high-speed thrills of a sport event like no other, captured for the very first time for the giant screen.

Ride along as elite pilots fight for position, wingtip-to-wingtip, in the world’s fastest motor sport—twice the speed of a NASCAR®-race. Air Racers is a unique invitation to discover an exceptional world filled with passion, competition and excitement combined with top-notch air show performers. This is a ride you won’t want to miss.


Daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., (5 p.m.*)

* On dates with extended hours.

Note for parents: In the context of aviation history, AIR RACERS contains recreations of wartime aerial combat that may be intense viewing for very young children.
