Tour Cape Canaveral and see where some of the most memorable events in history occurred. This Kennedy Space Center tour also features an IMAX movie, lunch with an astronaut, a space simulator, and much more to please any fan of America's space program.
Start your tour in Orlando when you get picked up from your preferred meeting location. The short drive to the space shuttle tour is a scenic one, so make sure to have your camera in hand. This NASA tour will give you the option to experience many interactive exhibits. Learn about early space exploration or take in an IMAX 3D film. Take a ride in a space simulator, the Shuttle Launch Experience, and feel the intense rumble of liftoff.
You'll also have access to the world's most comprehensive attraction devoted to the space shuttle: the Space Shuttle Atlantis. Experience 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 you to "be the astronaut," bringing to life the complexity of the engineering marvel that launched the Hubble Space Telescope and built the International Space Station (ISS). 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, take the helm at the shuttle cockpit, strap in to the sights, sounds, and sensations of a shuttle launch, and much more. This is the best expansion Kennedy Space Center has ever offered, giving you yet another reason to visit.
Tour the Astronaut Hall of Fame and explore a rare collection of astronaut artifacts. See the Hubble Telescope's images of deep space and experience the stars and galaxies in one of the many exhibits. This tour is out of this world. You'll even have the chance to see the Space Shuttle Atlantis up close and participate in a two-hour behind the scenes tour of the launch pads on the Discover KSC Bus Tour. If you're a fan of space exploration, if you've ever wanted to be an astronaut, this is the place for you!
