Description

from Kennedy Space Center Adventure
Welcome to the home of One Small Step for Man. In simple terms, this is one of the most essential – and thrilling – attractions in Florida, and it is as real as it comes in terms of a dynamic, visceral place to visit.

Not only does the Space Center offer the past, present, and future of the space program, it puts visitors front and center in the whole experience like never before. Seeing is believing, and you will believe you have been transported to the cutting edge of space exploration through a series of hands-on exhibits, movies, and presentations, including a daily Astronaut Encounter with one of the modern heroes of NASA’s operations.

Upon arrival your licensed and certified guide will take you on a 1 hour walking tour of the Visitors Complex. Listen as they share fun facts and the rich history that has made KSC and Cape Canaveral what it is today. They will also give you insider tips and the best way to circumnavigate the park for the rest of the day.

Then it’s off to the signature Bus Tour that provides a complete overview of the full extent of the vast spread of operations, including the massive Vehicle Assembly Building, Launch Complex 39B, and the Apollo/Saturn V Center, with its recreated moon landing and awesome full-size Saturn V rocket.

Back at the main Visitor Complex, you should definitely make a beeline for the hugely impressive Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, with its moving and emotional presentation of one of the four surviving orbiters, as well as take a ride on the riveting Shuttle Launch Experience, a clever simulator with the inside track on what it feels like to blast off from the Space Center.

You can also visit the Heroes & Legends center (including the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame), soak up the grandeur of the IMAX Theater with its eye-popping large-screen movies, and wander the Rocket Garden.

There is SO much to see here, you will definitely need all day to take it all in, and the Admission with Transportation is the perfect way to indulge your inner astronaut! The KSC is fully 60 miles from Orlando, so take the strain out of the journey and you can enjoy the experience to the max – the IMAX.

Officially referred to as “Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex”, this brand-new exhibit is included in the price of your ticket.
