Kennedy Space Center Day Trip with Transport from Orlando

Your Kennedy Space Center tour begins after an approximate 45-minute drive from Orlando. From the Visitor Complex, view rockets from all eras of space exploration in the Rocket Garden, and see an actual Gemini program capsule on display in Early Space Exploration. Walk beneath a massive Saturn V rocket, one of the most powerful ever built, at the Apollo/Saturn V Center and relive Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon and experience the thunderous rumble of a rocket lift-off!

Continue with two IMAX space movies viewed on five-story screens – Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D and Space Station 3D, which takes you on a virtual trip to the International Space Station. Check out the Astronaut Encounter to hear actual astronauts discuss their experiences and get photos of these heroes. Or try the Angry Birds Space Encounter for some intergalactic fun!

Board a full-size Space Shuttle mock-up and strap in for a virtual launch into space on the Shuttle Launch Experience. Orbit the earth in this awesome simulation replicating the sights, sounds and feelings of an authentic shuttle launch.

Finish your day with a visit to the US Astronaut Hall of Fame (closed on Thursdays), featuring the world's largest collection of personal astronaut mementos, historic spacecraft and hands-on activities. Sit in a mission control console, take a virtual moonwalk, feel the pull of 4Gs in the G-Force Simulator and see what it was like to land the Space Shuttle.

Tour Options:
Ugrade your tour to have lunch with an actual astronaut! Sit down for a meal with a member of NASA's Astronaut Corps and ask everything you ever wanted to know about what it's like to be in space. Or choose Space Pass Plus, which combines all of the above with a guided tour of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), NASA Causeway and A/B Camera Stop and a look at the countdown clock at Press Site, a crawler transporter used to move Apollo moon rockets and the Operations and Checkout building.

Finally, relax aboard the bus as you enjoy return transport to Orlando.

Great to see actual items which were used in space. The simulation ride was very good and was the whole space shuttle display. Our second time visiting and still very interesting.

We had a fantastic day at Kennedy Space Centre. We actually got to see a launch!! What an amazing experience it was. The Centre itself is way better than I thought it would be with lots of really interesting things to see. I think we actually needed more time to see it all. Would thoroughly recommend it.
