It's your turn to become a part of the space program. The Ultimate Space Experience gives you full access to all that the Kennedy Space Center and the Astronaut Hall of Fame have to offer, including lunch with an astronaut and shuttle transportation.

Kennedy Space Center
During the NASA bus tour, visit the Saturn V Exhibition and the Observation Gantry. You can even take pictures of the real shuttle launch pads. After the bus tour, sit back and enjoy an IMAX movie, stroll through a real-size space shuttle, look at a moon rock, and taste "space" ice cream. And don't forget to visit Exploration in the New Millennium exhibit, where you can "touch" a piece of Mars.

Lunch with an Astronaut
During your day at the space center, you’ll sit down for a 2-course lunch with an astronaut from NASA’s Astronaut Corps. Limited seating gives everyone a chance to ask questions, get autographs, and have a picture taken. Share the excitement of space exploration through the eyes and personal stories of one of NASA’s best. Lunch includes a roasted chicken entrée, dessert, and a beverage.

Astronaut Hall of Fame
Experience exhibits dedicated to the United State’s astronauts, including the world's largest collection of personal memorabilia and realistic astronaut training simulators. Suit up, strap in, and blast off into an interactive experience that gives you a true taste of space. Get hands on in the Astronaut Adventure® room! The G-Force Trainer, which lets you feel the pressure of four times the force of gravity. Experience what it's like to walk on the moon or ride a rover across the rocky Martian terrain, or carefully guide the Space Shuttle to a smooth landing.
