Summary of The Day: Be a part of history in the making as you explore the ins and outs of Kennedy Space Center on this out-of- this-world day tour. You’ll have access to restricted areas, walk under the massive Saturn V rocket and even meet and greet an astronaut from the Space Program!
One of the many highlights of your day will be the Shuttle Launch Experience, a space simulator that gives you a taste of what the astronauts feel when they lift off. You’ll also be able to view IMAX movies giving you a 3D look into what it’s like to walk on the moon, and visit the rocket garden for a surreal experience surrounded by giant rocket ‘flowers.’
The world’s most comprehensive attraction devoted to the space shuttle, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex’s new Space Shuttle Atlantis brings visitors nose-to- nose with the priceless Atlantis spacecraft as only astronauts have seen it before – with payload bay doors open as if it were floating in space. More than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators invite guests to “be the astronaut,” bringing to life the people, passion and patriotism behind NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program as well as the complexity of the engineering marvel that launched the Hubble Space Telescope and built the International Space Station (ISS).
The Kennedy Space Center Tour is a can’t-miss chance to feel like a real astronaut!
Finally you will receive an exclusive welcome from an Astronaut upon arrival at Kennedy Space Center. Following the Astronaut Meet and Greet the tour guides take the guests over to the Space Shuttle Atlantis for a brief highlights tour of the facility, before leaving the guests to enjoy their day at their leisure. Should the meet and greet not be available then there would be no refund as there are no surcharges for this great enhancement to your tour day.
No backpacks, large bags, coolers, food or weapons are allowed inside the Kennedy Space Center. The transportation-only option is at the same times as it rides along on the same vehicle as Kennedy Space Center. That tour, however, does not include tickets into the park.
Your reservation is always subject to confirmation by email, normally within one to two business days.
