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

Our guide to Kennedy Space Center Tickets

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.
  • Experience the thrill of the space race with the launch of Apollo 8. Watch history unfold in the Firing Room as the first crewed Saturn V mission blasts into space.
  • See the real Lunar Module 9 with a life-sized scene from the Apollo 11 Moon landing at the Moonscape exhibit. While there, be sure to put your skills to the test in three interactive challenges!
  • 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 (currently undergoing renovations; Journey to Space will be shown on the jumbo tron at North Atlantis Lawn during this period).
  • Heroes and Legends exhibition featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame® presented by Boeing®.
  • Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour - Access the restricted areas of NASA's Kennedy Space Center to see operational facilities for the history and future of American spaceflight.

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.

Our guide to Kennedy Space Center Tickets

Space Shuttle Atlantis

Space Shuttle Atlantis

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.

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.

Apollo 8 and the Firing Room at Kennedy Space Center

Apollo 8 and the Firing Room

Relive the launch of the first crewed NASA mission to orbit the Moon in 1968 aboard the massive Saturn V rocket at the Firing Room Theater. Experience the countdown for Apollo 8 facing the actual consoles used during the Apollo launches as you see and feel the powerful Saturn V Moon rocket lift off from the launch pad and blast into space.

Moonscape at Kennedy Space Center

Moonscape

Moonscape is one of the most compelling new exhibits at the Apollo/Saturn V Center, featuring a scene from Apollo 11 when Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong planted the American flag on the lunar surface. Get an up-close look at the vehicle that sheltered humans on the Moon and lifted them off the surface when the exploration was complete. Interactive challenges help further your understanding - Learn about each part of the lunar module and Apollo spacesuit, and see how far a golf ball will fly with the Moon’s lower gravitational pull. You can also practice landing and launching the lunar module and docking with the command service module.

Heroes & Legends featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame

Heroes & Legends featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®

Celebrate the pioneers of NASA’s early space programs which inspired a nation to reach for the stars. This new attraction, presented by Boeing®, also features the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®. Relive the thrills and dangers of America’s earliest space missions and embark on an awe-inspiring journey designed to spark thought about how humans define a hero. Experience the dawn of the space age with astronaut pioneers through a mix of 4D multisensory theater and actual artifacts.

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.
