Kennedy Space Center: Admission & Transportation

Highlights / General details
One of the many highlights of your day will be the Shuttle Launch Experience, a space simulator that gives you a taste of what the astronauts feel when they lift off. You’ll also be able to view IMAX movies giving you a 3D look into what it’s like to walk on the moon, and visit the rocket garden for a surreal experience surrounded by giant rocket ‘flowers.’

The world’s most comprehensive attraction devoted to the space shuttle, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex’s new Space Shuttle Atlantis brings visitors nose-to-nose with the priceless Atlantis spacecraft as only astronauts have seen it before – with payload bay doors open as if it were floating in space. 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 (ISS). Guests can conduct a virtual EVA or extravehicular activity; practice docking to the ISS; extract cargo from the payload bay; create sonic booms and glide to a landing on the Re-entry Slide; experience the sensation of floating in space; explore a high-fidelity replica of the ISS; virtually mate Atlantis to the external tank; kick up a virtual chemical reaction to launch the shuttle; get an “X-ray view” of Atlantis’ interior; experience an orbital sunrise; strap in to the sights, sounds and sensations of a shuttle launch; take the helm at the shuttle cockpit, and much more. This is the best expansion Kennedy Space Center has ever had and gives you a reason you have to visit!

The Kennedy Space Center Tour is a can’t-miss chance to feel like a real astronaut!

By riding the Gray Line Orlando bus, you will receive an exclusive welcome from an astronaut upon arrival at Kennedy Space Center. Only Gray Line guests have this meet and greet option, and it is an excellent added benefit. Should the meet and greet not be available, then there would be no refund as there are no surcharges for this great enhancement to your tour day. Currently from summer 2018 the meet and greet usually happens on Wednesday & Saturday mornings due to the astronaut schedules. On all days the astronaut is not available we will substitute with a walk-through tour of the Space Shuttle Atlantis facility.

Be sure to ride the Gray Line transportation to Kennedy Space Center - this tour is truly, 'Out of This World'!

Round-trip transportation from select meeting points in the Orlando area; Guided orientation tour of the Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibit; Admission ticket to Kennedy Space Center; Kennedy Space Center NASA Bus Tour with stops at the Observation Gantry to see Saturn V exhibit area; Astronaut Meet and Greet welcome upon arrival at the Kennedy Space Center – exclusive to guests of Gray Line Orlando.
