mydays Erlebniswerk at BIKINI BERLIN promises pure adrenaline over an area of 750 m²

You know how you’ve always wanted to see what it’s like to fly a plane or speed around the world’s fastest race tracks with 1000 HP at your fingertips? Well, guess what? It’s your lucky day - you no longer need to be a pilot or a racing driver to make the grade. With its innovative racing and flight simulators, mydays Erlebniswerk at BIKINI BERLIN offers you the chance to test-drive this kind of high-performance equipment at high speeds.

More than 3000 HP on an area of 750 m²

Over 3000 HP awaits you on an area covering 750 m² in the form of two Formula 1 cars, a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and an Audi R8 LMS, not to mention the Boeing 737-800 and the Airbus A320. Boredom just isn’t an option here – and just think of all that adrenaline flying around...

I opted to put the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup through its paces on the race track, but soon discovered that it’s not as easy as it looks to steer the car’s 485 HP around those bends without leaving the track or crashing into the sides – the scarily authentic simulation makes sure of that. So much so that while I know this was “just” a simulation, I only had eyes for the race track and almost forgot that I was actually in a closed space.

Full-motion simulation means that the entire chassis moves as you drive, allowing you to experience uneven terrain, extreme driving manoeuvres and impact exactly as you would in real life. With just one tiny difference: there’s absolutely no real danger involved. So yes, you really can venture onto a race track without a care in the world and see what it feels like to drive a car with 485 HP under the bonnet – or even 1000 HP in the case of the F1 cars.

 
 

Boeing 737-800 or Airbus A320?

The flight simulators offer an equally unmissable experience. Many a child’s favourite dream is to become a pilot, but very few achieve their ambition, destined instead to be flown by others to the four corners of the world. But what does it actually feel like to be behind the controls of these aircraft?

mydays Erlebniswerk offers you the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of either a Boeing 737-800 or an Airbus A320. Then it will be your turn to pilot the plane and take off or land in a range of airports across the world. And while driving a racing car is one thing, flying an aircraft is quite simply something else!

You’ll be confronted with a whole array of buttons and switches in the cockpit, just for starters, but thankfully there are experienced pilots on hand to guide you on your maiden flight. And even if the simulator feels impressively realistic and all the on-board instruments are true-to-life, there really is no risk and you can try out your pilot’s wings without a second thought.

So what’s it to be? Can we tempt you to drive a genuine Formula 1 racing car on tracks such as the Nürburgring or the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi? Or would you rather fly one of our planes at an altitude of 12,500 metres?
