The entire experience was out of this world. No pun intended. We are extremely happy with the amazing people from the person that helped us get on our tour Peter to our tour guide Zoe. We could not have expected more. The exhibits where awesome. Thank you Nassa for making such a great educational experience. Be so fun. Can't wait to come back.

Every part of this experience was fantastic! The Explore Tour is well worth the money, being able to stand right where so much history took place is beyond wonderful. KSC has so much to offer and see. To stand under a Saturn 5 rocket and nearly within reach of Space Shuttle Atlantis is truly awesome. We will definitely be returning, hopefully for a launch!

Loved the explore tour . Very nice tour . Didn't like how in the main complex some of the staff acted like they didn't care when being asked something. The parking lot didn't have any stroller parking which was fine but when I asked the lady at the parking booth was very rude about it " what no we don't do that here" . Her tone was very rude.

Prepare for blast-off

Your space adventure begins with meeting your guide, who will be your mission control throughout the day. They'll provide insider tips and historical knowledge to enrich your experience at the Kennedy Space Center. First, head to the iconic Space Shuttle Atlantis. Get up close and personal with this spacecraft; its payload bay is open just as it was during missions. Feel the G-forces of a launch in a simulator, practice docking the International Space Station, or experience the weightlessness of space in a virtual spacewalk. Delve into the "Heroes and Legends" exhibit, and hear the stories of the brave men and women who have pushed the boundaries of space exploration.

Go beyond the exhibits

Hop aboard a special bus with a space expert guide. They'll whisk you past restricted areas, like the Vehicle Assembly Building where rockets are prepped for launch. See Launch Complex 39, where the Apollo missions blasted off, and witness the future of space travel at the launch pads used by SpaceX and ULA. This experience offers 1-day or 2-day ticket options. The 1-day option is perfect for a whirlwind adventure, while the 2-day ticket allows you to delve deeper into the exhibits. Round-trip transfers from Orlando are available with an upgrade for a hassle-free journey directly to the Kennedy Space Center. There is also a summer special offer that lets you grab an adult ticket for the price of a child's. It's the perfect summer deal for budget-conscious fun!
