Itinerary

Your professional driver and guide will pick you up from the designated meeting points or your hotel in an air-conditioned coach and make the short trip to the Kennedy Space Center, where your Space Pass affords you free reign over this remarkable place.

Begin your exploration with a guided tour of NASA facilities, including massive launch pads and the incomparable Apollo/ Saturn V Center. Gain a rare view of the Space Station Processing Facility, where gargantuan building blocks for the International Space Station are painstakingly prepared.

Take a stroll through a forest of artfully arranged spacecrafts in the rocket garden and inspect a Gemini program capsule from the early days of space travel.

Stare awestruck at five story screens at the world’s only back-to-back twin IMAX theaters, where you can feel the rush of liftoff or bump along a rocky lunar landscape.

Enter the G-Force trainer and feel the awesome pressure of four times of gravity closing in on you.

See real artifacts from past missions at the Astronaut Hall of Fame and honor those who gave their lives in service of science at the Astronaut Memorial.

Enjoy a tasty chicken lunch with a real astronaut, where you can ask all your burning questions about the great beyond.

Your driver will take you back to the starting point at the tour’s end.
