Description

from Kennedy Space Center Adventure and Chat with an Astronaut
When you want to take your space exploration a step further, what better way to enjoy the KSC than with one of the people who make it all happen – one of NASA’s very own astronauts.

Not only will you be whisked to the Visitor Complex with all the convenience and efficiency of Real Florida Adventures transport, but you will also be first in line for one of THE great personalized experiences the Space Center offers.

Set in a purpose-designed intimate venue at the Visitors Complex, you will be introduced to some common astronaut traditions before engaging in a question and answer with one of NASA’s amazing Astronauts. During this 45-minute to an hour session, you’ll be able to ask those well-thought-out questions to see what it’s like to work for NASA and be one of the few to travel into orbit.

During the Chat, enjoy a food and beverage sampling while having your group conversation. Each guest will receive a commemorative gift and a lithograph (signed portrait) of the astronaut.

Of course, you will still have plenty of time to explore the rest of the Space Center and soak up the amazing, dynamic vibe of the modern KSC, which has been dramatically revamped in recent years to immerse visitors in both the history and the future of space exploration.

There is a LOT to discover, but don’t miss the awe-inspiring Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, complete with the Shuttle Launch Experience, the Heroes & Legends center, incorporating the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, the majestic Rocket Garden, and the fabulous IMAX Theater, with its larger-than-life movie features.
