Kennedy Space Center Day Trip with Transport from Orlando

Astronaut Hall of Fame at Kennedy Space Center

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. Enjoy other Kennedy Space Center shows and exhibits including a chance to meet an astronaut at the Astronaut Encounter Show or take a journey to the Angry Birds Space Encounter for intergalactic challenges come to life.

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 land the Space Shuttle.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Excellent, the driver Mr. P was highly knowledgeable and give us good direction so that we spend time well. Overall excellent value for money.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

G'Day, My Wife and Daughter and I, We had a great day. The Driver could have been an Astronaut with all the facts he knew about NASA and all the Launch sites. If I ever travelled back to NASA I would only go with Viator (Dolphin). A highlight of my holiday and a memory I'll keep forever. People you can trust Viator I highly recommend them.
Thanks Les (Australia)
