Kennedy Space Center Tickets

Live out your childhood dreams and discover the wonders of space exploration at the Kennedy Space Center - NASA's launch headquarters in Orlando – it’s out of this world!

About Kennedy Space Center

Live life as an astronaut for one incredible day with access to NASA’s restricted areas!

All our Kennedy Space Center tickets include access to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, easily one of the best must-see attractions in Florida.

Here you can train on space-flight simulators, meet and dine with real-life astronauts and if the stars (and planets) are on your side, even watch a space shuttle launch…

…you can relive man’s first steps on the moon, see how it feels to be launched in a NASA Shuttle, and much, much more!

We have a great choice of value-for-money tickets which include all kinds of exciting, unique experiences. Many of our tickets are exclusive to our UK customers and offer worthwhile savings compared with paying at the gate.

Attractions at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex include:

Space Shuttle Atlantis

Get up close to the real-life Space Shuttle Atlantis! This world-famous NASA spacecraft, which is housed in a brand new 90,000sqft exhibition area at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, travelled to space an incredible 33 times before being retired in 2011.

IMAX Theater

Leave the earth behind without leaving your seat at the Kennedy Space Center’s state-of-the-art IMAX theatre. Watch two incredible 3D IMAX movies - Hubble and Journey to Space (narrated by Leonardo diCaprio and Sir Patrick Stewart!)

Free Astronaut Meet & Greet (with select tickets only) 

A welcome meet and greet by a real astronaut is included with select tickets! The astronaut will welcome you to Kennedy Space Center and give some hints and tips to ensure you enjoy your day.

Led by a trained space expert, this out-of-this-world tour takes you through the restricted areas of the Kennedy Space Center complex where you’ll see the space shuttle launch pads, the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), the Shuttle Landing Facility and the NASA Causeway, with loads of brilliant close-up photo opportunities.

Astronaut Training Experience (ATX) & Mars Base 1*:

Train like an astronaut with the ATX Experience ticket option! This intense 5-hours, hands-on programme, designed by NASA astronauts, takes you through the preparation and training required for the rigors of space flight.

Want to find out what it’s like to work on a Mars space station for a day? Join the crew with the Mars Base 1 Experience (7 hours) ticket – work at the base, take care of the plants in the lab & try your hand at programming space robots

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great day out and very interesting for adults and I bought tickets mainly for my husband. However the day was throughly enjoyed by all of us. There are interactive areas which the kids loved (so did we), and the tour which is included in the ticket price takes you to NASA and you can see the launch pads etc

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but long day out will start off our review with driving round Orlando for 2 hours picking up from various hotels before the coach departed for Kennedy Space Centre. Lots to see and do there, do the coach tour first out to the launch sites as that will take a while. Go and see Atlantis, you can spend a long time in there. We booked a package including the airboat trip....unfortunately due to the August weather, this was cancelled upon arrival due to a storm overhead. We couldn't get rebooked just for the airboat as we could have only made the next two days and it was fully booked. It was a very good day out, but a lot of hanging around waiting for people and dropping people off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and emotional day out. Very straight forward. Picked up on time just avross the road from our hotel. The driver had quite a strong accent but once you got used to it he had a wealth of information about the Space Centre. Saw a Bald Eagle and huge nest. So emotional when you see Atlantis for the first time. Would so advise everyone to do this trip. Not enough time to do everything especially if you do the airboat ride as you lose about 1.5 hours at the Space Centre. Saw about 30 alligators including baby ones on the boat trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly great visit I was looking forward to this but my kids not so much so! After the thrills of Disney and Universal the kids were expecting this to be not so enjoyable....how wrong they were my 9 yr old daughter, 11 yr old son, 18 yr old nephew and 22 yr old niece loved it, all saying it was one of the best days of our holiday. Meeting 3 time astronaut Sam Gemar was the highlight of a great visit.
