Skip-the-Line Ultimate Kennedy Space Center Experience

by Gray Line Orlando Duration 11h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $184

Space enthusiasts and novices alike can launch into the Ultimate Experience at Kennedy Space Center. Skip the lines to discover the machines and mechanics of space exploration, take a guided tour, and savor a delicious buffet lunch while a NASA astronaut details the ins and outs of the job.

Start at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and get an astronaut's look at the Space Shuttle Atlantis, which just took its final flight in 2011. See its giant payload bay doors opened wide, just like they are in space, and interact with more than 60 touchscreens and simulators. Attempt to dock the shuttle to the International Space Station (ISS), feel the weightless sensation of zero gravity, helm the cockpit, and more.

As you get a handle on being an astronaut, learn about the complex engineering that made such feats as the Hubble Space Telescope and the ISS possible. Before lunch, check out an IMAX movie or the Shuttle Launch Experience. Then listen to a real NASA astronaut speak as you fill up on a buffet. Don't forget to snap some pictures and get a few autographs in the process.

Afterward, hop on the Kennedy Space Bus for a guided 2-hour tour. Pass former launch pads, stop at vehicle assembly buildings, and learn inside information from your expert guide. Finish at the Saturn V Center, where you can get up close with a rocket and touch a moon rock.

4.5 out of 5

4/5 Mar 26, 2019

Loved the day right up until the ride home. Took 55 minutes to get there and 3+ hours to get home. Had to go out of our way and pick people up from the Everglades and then stop at every hotel and drop people off. We left the Space Center at 5:30 and was after 8:30 when we got to our hotel.

Exceeded all expectations!!! Loved lunch with the Astronaut. Loved Atlantis, special bus tour in the afternoon. Clean, great food. Wonderful time ......I would do it again tomorrow. A lot to take in.

Very much enjoyed the tour and would do it again. Bus trip back a disaster with Graylines. Repair issue and bus never got back to pick us up. Waited hours until finally shared an Uber with a couple to get back to Orlando. No plan for them to come and get us. Very disappointed
