Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum information
Lonely Planet review
The USS Intrepid survived both a WWII bomb and kamikaze attacks. Thankfully, this hulking aircraft carrier is now a lot less stressed, playing host to a multimillion dollar interactive military museum that tells its tale through videos, historical artifacts and frozen-in-time living quarters. The flight deck features fighter planes and military helicopters, which might inspire you try the museum's high-tech flight simulators.
The rides include the G Force Encounter, allowing you to experience the virtual thrill of flying a supersonic jet plane, and the Transporter FX, a flight simulator promising six full minutes of a ‘complete sensory overload.’ The museum is also home to the guided-missile submarine Growler, (not for the claustrophobic), a decommissioned Concorde, and the former NASA space shuttle Enterprise .
