There are plenty of fun things to see and do at the I-X Center. The Cleveland Auto Show is not all about seeking a new car, you can seek a pretty good thrill there, too.

If you have the need for speed, and you want to have a little fun at the Cleveland Auto Show, you need to check out one of the multiple car simulators on display.

"It simulates you being in the Mazda Speed 3 with a professional race car driver," said Nicholas Fracassa, AV Tech for Blue Water Technologies.

It's called the Mazda Raceway Ride Along.

"It's fun. It kind of gets you back in your seat," said Fracassa. "There are kind of a few surprises in it that people are not expecting."

If you need something a little more thrilling, there's always the Sim-Zilla Simulator.

"It was fun," exclaimed Rose Rose, of Cuyahoga Falls.

The Sim-Zilla is a fast-paced thrill ride that lets you experience the excitement of world-class racing.

"Where you are really downshifting and putting on the breaks, it actually lays you forward," said Richard Hahn, of Amherst.

"Going in, I thought it would be more or less like a video game," Krystal Haase, of Cleveland said.

"Well worth the wait in line," Don Traylor, of Cleveland said after riding Sim-Zilla.

And if you're interested in a little more leisurely drive, check out the Eco Boost simulator.

"It's not that tough, this one here is actually 60 seconds," said Ken Cothery, Product Specialist for Ford.

"You have three turns," said Cothery. "It's fun. It's like a game."

You can check out all of the simulators at the Auto Show now through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 11:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
