Take an out-of-this-world day trip to the awe-inspiring Kennedy Space Center from Orlando. Spend hours exploring the NASA world-class facility, launchpads and rocket exhibits like Saturn V. You’ll have a chance to participate in the simulated Shuttle Launch Experience, see stellar IMAX films and get first-hand space stories at Astronaut Encounter. Upgrade to have lunch with a veteran astronaut and other sightseeing experiences.
What to Expect
Spend a day marveling at the magnificence of space travel at the Kennedy Space Center. Your approximate 11-hour tour begins with early morning pickup from select Orlando locations. Grab a seat on the coach and relax for the 45-minute ride to the space center.

Upon arrival at the KSC Visitor Complex, you're free to tour the stellar visitor complex at your leisure. Board the NASA bus for a quick trip to one of the many mind-blowing exhibits like the Early Space Exploration exhibit featuring stories and artifacts from missions like Gemini, or the Rocket Garden to view the first NASA rockets. Kids (and adults!) will love getting interactive at the Children’s Play Dome.

Continue to the Apollo/Saturn V Center, where you’ll relive Neil Armstrong’s moonwalk, touch a moon rock, and get a close-up view of the giant Saturn V rocket — the largest rocket ever made at 363 feet (110 meters) tall! Then take in a complimentary showing or two at the IMAX Theater, currently playing Hubble Telescope and Journey to Space, an extraordinary 3D documentary narrated by Patrick Stewart. And don’t leave without getting a full-sensory space experience at the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, featuring more than 60 interactive experiences!

Between stops, engage in savvy interactive displays, remember fallen astronauts at the Astronaut Memorial and take needed snack breaks (own expense) in the Rocket Garden or Orbit Cafe.

At the end of your tour, a coach will return you to the departure point in Orlando.

Upgrade Options:
  • Lunch with an Astronaut - Enjoy an unforgettable lunch with a veteran NASA astronaut. Help yourself to a fresh buffet meal, and spend some quality time with an expert space traveler to ask your burning space questions and get an autograph!
  • Space Plus Pass - Includes ‘Lunch with An Astronaut,’ followed by an expert guided tour NASA Causeway to view a space shuttle launch pad, A/B Camera Stop — a camera bunker used during space shuttle flights — and the countdown clock at Press Site.

A full day activity, great for children 10 + and adults alike.

There are two IMAX 3D films that are excellent, especially the film on planet earth, it made me cry , as it highlights the current issues we are most probably responsible for. You get a real feel for the fragility of our eco system. Touring...More

Highlight of our trip to Orlando

Wow, just wow. For someone from Australia who sat on his father's shoulders and saw the spaceship going to the moon in 1969, this was just a dream come true. It is a must do activity when visiting Orlando. Wish we had a second day...More

Could not fault the service provided by Grayline Tour Bus to KSC. Pick up was at Goodings Supermarket at 8.30am. Our Italian bus driver/tour guide was excellent. I don't think the rest of the passengers gave him credit (gratuities) reflecting his fantastic commentary. He was...More
