The only place on Earth where you can tour actual rocket launch areas...

With a massive array of one-of-a-kind hands-on exhibits and attractions, Kennedy Space Centre tickets provide a hugely entertaining and educational experience - there is nowhere on earth quite like it! Visit the Kennedy Space Center and add lift-off to your Orlando holiday experience.

Our guide to Kennedy Space Center

Located just one hour from Orlando, the world famous Kennedy Space Center is a fascinating place where it anything seems possible.

Here you can meet a real life Astronaut, walk amongst giant rockets, tour actual rocket launch areas, be wowed by stunning IMAX films, touch a piece of Mars or see the Space Shuttle Atlantis as if it were in space.

But that’s not all; the recent addition of the Shuttle Launch Experience to the Kennedy Space Center allows you to feel the full-on G forces of a space shuttle launch without years of training!

More interactive than a museum, more inspirational than a science centre and more authentic and educational than a theme park, discover a host breathtaking attractions with your Kennedy Space Center tickets:

  • Atlantis - See Space Shuttle Atlantis as if it were in space - raised 30 feet off the ground and rotated at a 43.21-degree angle with its payload bay doors open and Canadarm (robotic arm) extended. Enjoy 360-degree views of Atlantis including the wear and tear of its 33 missions apparent on its protective external tiles. 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.
  • Incorporated into Space Shuttle Atlantis is the adjacent Shuttle Launch Experience, which simulates the vertical launch aboard the space shuttle. Guests are immersed in the sights, sounds and feelings of a space shuttle launch, designed under the guidance of NASA and veteran space shuttle astronauts.
  • Apollo/Saturn V Center - Relive the wonder and excitement of the Apollo era in this one-of-a-kind exhibit that celebrates the unprecedented achievement of putting man on the moon. At it's centre is the incredible 363-foot-long Saturn V moon rocket.
  • IMAX® Films - In two giant IMAX theatres, the dream of spaceflight comes alive with a wall of sound, a five-storey screen and realistic 3D special effects showing incredible 3D space films. Heroes and Legends exhibition featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame® presented by Boeing®.

Why we love it!?

Kennedy Space Centre tickets provide the perfect accompaniment to the all-out action of the theme parks, providing a bit of stimulation for the old grey matter and leaving you with a real sense of awe. It is an educational experience for kids and adults alike, but this is never at the expense of a bit of fun.

Space Shuttle Atlantis at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex brings visitors nose-to-nose with Atlantis and invites them to “be the astronaut” with more than 60 interactive, immersive exhibits and simulators that highlight the people, passion and patriotism behind NASA’s program that launched the Hubble Space Telescope and built the International Space Station.

Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour

Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour

Short of becoming an astronaut, there’s no better way to get a glimpse of Kennedy Space Center than on the Kennedy Space Center Tour (KSC Tour). Take a NASA bus for a drive-by view of a launch pad and then experience the historic Apollo 8 launch site and marvel at a massive 363-foot-long Saturn V moon rocket at the Apollo/Saturn V Center.

Shuttle Launch Experience®

Shuttle Launch Experience®

It’s 3... 2... 1... launch as guests take their own exciting journey of the Space Shuttle’s rush to Earth’s orbit. On Shuttle Launch Experience®, visitors strap in to the sights, sounds and sensations of a real Space Shuttle launch.

IMAX® Space Films

IMAX® Space Films

The dream of spaceflight comes alive in two giant IMAX theatres. The 'Journey to Space' explores NASA’s bold plans for deep space exploration, using stunning space footage brought to life by the narration of Patrick Stewart. 'A Beautiful Planet' narrated by Jennifer Lawrence provides a new perspective on the planet we call home with help of exclusive footage shot by the astronauts on the International Space Station.

Apollo / Saturn V Center

Apollo / Saturn V Center

Millions of people held their breath while a single man stepped onto the moon’s surface – a journey that began just a short distance from where the Apollo/Saturn V Center stands today. For those who remember, the event remains in their minds just as those footprints remain in the lunar soil.

The Rocket Garden

The Rocket Garden

Travel back in time and history in the NASA Rocket Garden.Dramatic lighting brings historic NASA rockets back to life with an adventurous and patriotic scheme, highlighting each fuselage with brilliant white uplight, bathing the site with techno-blue accents and heating the engines with flickering red-orange light.

Astronaut Encounter: Meet an Astronaut

Astronaut Encounter: Meet an Astronaut

Of the Earth's six billion people, a mere 500 men and women (approximately) have ever flown in space. But each day at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, guests get the rare opportunity to meet veteran astronauts from NASA’s famous Astronaut Corps. The daily Astronaut Encounter briefings allow plenty of time for discussion, so bring your questions – and your camera.
