KENNEDY SPACE CENTER VISITOR COMPLEX ADMISSION TICKET:
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex - located on the Atlantic Ocean in Cape Canaveral, 45 minutes east of Orlando - is open every day of the year, except December 25 and certain launch days. Current operating hours are from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. The Astronaut Hall of Fame is open from 12:00 am to 6:00 pm.
This ticket for the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex includes the Kennedy Space Center Tour of NASA's Launch Headquarters, two IMAX films, all shows and exhibits - including Space Shuttle Atlantis, and a visit to the Astronaut Hall of Fame. This ticket includes the KSC Bus Tour with a stop at the four-story LC-39 Observation Gantry where you get a bird's eye view of the Space Shuttle launch pads and parts of the world's busiest space launch facility. You'll also stop at the acclaimed Apollo/Saturn V Center, where you will walk beneath a massive Saturn V rocket, relive Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon, and experience the thunderous rumble of a Saturn V moon rocket lift off.
An exciting new addition to the Kennedy Space Center is the Shuttle Launch Experience! It's 3...2...1...LAUNCH as guests take their own vibrant journey of the Space Shuttle's rush to Earth's orbit. On this Shuttle Launch Experience, you will strap-in to the sights, sounds and sensations of launching into space...fully vertical! The journey begins as passengers enter the Shuttle Launch Simulation Facility. As crew members ascend along the gantry, veteran shuttle astronauts share testimonials, setting the stage for the experience to come. Entering the heart of Space Shuttle operations for the pre-launch briefing, crew members are guided by veteran Space Shuttle Commander Charlie Bolden as he takes them step-by-step through the launch sequence. Brilliant video screens spring to life on shuttle-like robotic arms. Anxious moments arise as dramatic atmospheric sound and lighting effects dramatize the moments before launch.
Also included are IMAX movie screenings of "Hubble 3D." Hubble 3D offers an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy and highlights its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves.
You may also enjoy the many other shows and exhibits at the Visitor Complex, including a chance to meet a real astronaut at the Astronaut Encounter Show, and enjoy the live, interactive experiences of Exploration Space: Explorers Wanted.
Don't forget - your ticket also allows you to visit to the Astronaut Hall of Fame, located at the entrance to the Kennedy Space Center. This attraction features the world's largest collection of personal astronaut mementos, historic spacecraft, one-of-a-kind space legacies, and hands-on activities. You may sit in a mission control console, feel the pull of 4 Gs in the G-Force Simulator, and land a Space Shuttle.

An impressive roster of Astronauts have appeared since the program's inception in 2001, among them Wally Schirra, John Glenn, Jim Lovell, Gene Cernan, Walt Cunningham, Story Musgrave and Jon McBride.
This meal opportunity includes a banquet-style lunch with a speaking appearance by a real Astronaut hero. The popular program includes a fun highlight video of Astronauts living and working in space, a brief oration of the Astronaut's thoughts, and individual time with each family for Q&A and photos. The meal is topped off by a wonderful selection of desserts.
Each meal is an exclusive opportunity to rub elbows, ask questions, and take pictures with a real Space Hero! And the food is fantastic!

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER UP-CLOSE TOUR:
The Kennedy Space Center Up-Close Tour will allow you the rare opportunity to disembark your tour bus and tour inside the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB).
For the first time since 1978, you will be able to see firsthand where monstrous vehicles were assembled for launch, as well as where the future is unfolding for the continued missions into space.
During the first portion of this tour, you will have the opportunity to view Kennedy Space Center landmarks including NASA’s KSC Headquarters, office of Center Director and four-time shuttle astronaut, Robert Cabana, and various KSC staff; and the Operations & Checkout building (O&C), which serves as the astronaut crew quarters prior to each launch and where science modules and trusses for the International Space Station (ISS) were tested before flight. This is also the site at which astronauts boarded the Astrovan to ride to the launch pads. The tour also passes by the Space Station Processing Facilities (SSPF), where hardware and components of the ISS were processed and tested before flight.
Next, you may disembark at the NASA Causeway for a panoramic view of the Banana River, Port Canaveral and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, home of the first rocket launches of the Mercury and Gemini programs. You will be able to spot launch pads 17, 37, 40, and 41, which are still used today for commercial and government launches today. You may even spot a rocket on the pad or inside its mobile service structure. From this scenic vantage point, you may also see Liberty Star and Freedom Star, the two recovery ships used to retrieve the space shuttle’s solid rocket boosters from the Atlantic Ocean after they were jettisoned during launch.
The tour then travels into the heart of Kennedy Space Center, where you will pass by the three Orbiter Processing Facilities (OPFs), the hangars where shuttle orbiters were processed and maintained between flights. Today, the OPFs are being used to decommission the orbiters in preparation for their retirement, including Atlantis, which will be displayed in a brand new $100 million facility at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in 2013.
Following the stop inside the VAB, you will re-board the bus for views of the massive Crawler Transporters and “Crawlerway,” the equivalent of an eight-lane highway lined with river rock and designed to support the crushing weight of the Saturn V and space shuttles along with their mobile launch platforms. There will also be a view of the Solid Rocket Booster Storage Areas; the Pegasus barge used to haul the shuttle’s orange External Fuel Tanks from their birthplace in Louisiana; Press Site and the famous blue countdown clock; as well as the Mate/Demate Device at the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF), where orbiters were unloaded from Boeing 747s after an occasional cross-country piggyback ride.
You will disembark a final time at Camera Stop A/B – one of the hilltop sites from which NASA remotely shoots launch photography and videography. With Launch Pads 39A and B on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, you will have even more opportunities to snap the photos of a lifetime. Tour guides will point out the modifications to pad 39B, which has been stripped of all vertical structure to make way for the launch of a variety of rockets, commercial or Space Launch System (SLS). Pad 39A remains unmodified, so guests can see where every manned mission to the moon and many of the space shuttle missions originated.
The opportunity to see a space shuttle in the VAB is available for a very limited time and is subject to change without notice.
The tour includes a souvenir pin and information kit. Buses are wheelchair-accessible.
All tour participants 18 and older must present photo identification prior to embarking on the tour.
All of the tour buses are equipped with wheelchair-accessible lifts. You can request this service from any of the ticket agents and board buses from Gate 5.
You also have the option of transferring into tour buses and picking up a wheelchair at each of the tour destinations.
In the summer and fall, dress light, wear sunblock, and wear comfortable shoes. In the Winter and Spring, wear layered clothing.
