Enjoy a guided tour of NASA's Launch Complex 39 rocket launch site; the Shuttle Launch Experience, which is what veteran NASA astronauts call the next best thing to an actual space shuttle launch; two IMAX films — IMAX® A Beautiful Planet and Journey To Space 3D, plus a number of other shows and exhibits, including a chance to meet an astronaut at the Astronaut Encounter. There is also the breathtaking Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibit, showcasing the historic spacecraft that tells the story of NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program.
Finally, visit the LC-39 Observation Gantry and the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Listen to the thunderous sounds of a Saturn V moon rocket liftoff and watch Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon.
The day concludes with a return trip to Orlando.
I took this trip in February as part of a birthday trip with family, and enjoyed it immensely. Our tour guide and driver were very welcoming and friendly. And since we went off-peak our tight nit group were able to enjoy the company of being told nit bits about Orlando, space center, or anything we wanted to know. The drive going to and from consisted of long relaxing roads which I found peaceful.
The airboat ride went so quickly, but it was very fun. Our airboat driver took us through the swamp at such high speeds - loved it! Be prepared for your hair to go crazy too but what fun would it be if it didn't?. Driver slowed down whenever he say gators and we even slowed down to one and got pretty close, all in all we say maybe 3-4. It's also a stark contrast to see the cows grazing passed the gators like it's normal.
I would definitely recommend, especially when you think about the cost of taking a taxi there or driving there with parking fees at the Space Center. You can easily knock off two things to do in Orlando in one day. Thanks for the trip!
The best ever way to enjoy going fast, and to see the wildlife in a swamp atmosphere in a boat.
The Kennedy Space Center is just awesome, to good not to miss if you like the space feeling.
The airboat safari was great! The guide was knowledgable and we saw many alligators and birds. The Kennedy Space Center was amazing and inspiring!
Awesome tour, we have been to Kennedy Space Center before but our tour guide Madeline gave us a schedule so we wouldn't miss anything and we got to see so much more then our first visit. The air-boat safari was fantastic, we saw at least 4 alligators and the driver let us sit in the air-boat and take photos after the tour. Have already told family to do this day trip
Great value! We did have a miscommunication regarding pick up location, but everything worked out. The airboat ride was great! We saw several gators. We found the KSC very interesting. It was just enough time for us, but if you're really into space and space exploration, you may find yourself short on time. I would highly recommend.
Brilliant. We saw so many alligators and loved the Space centre. we could have done with more time as just not enough time to see everything. Everyone so friendly
Friendly guide, comfortable ride, lots of photo opportunities and a totally stress free experience.
Excellent tour. Great fun.
Wonderful experience. The airboat captain was a phenomenal wealth of information and very interesting, and our tour guide, Red, was absolutely the best! He kept us entertained on the bus and had great knowledge of the attractions at Kennedy Space Center.
The day of our tour was awesome the airboat ride and Kennedy Space Center were awesome. Our tour guide, Red, was funny and very informative. He even had movies to pass the time while driving. Dealing with the company who organized the trip was horrible. Organizing our pick up location and time turned into a huge ordeal and then on the day, they screwed it up, making us and all the other pick ups late. I loved this tour but the stress of dealing with the tour operator made me very frustrated!
