ITINERARY

  • Attractions


Space Shuttle Atlantis
There she is. Just an arm’s length away, NASA’s most incredible feat of engineering to date – a vehicle that launched like a rocket, flew in orbit like a spacecraft, and landed on a runway like a glider. It’s a view only astronauts on the International Space Station or spacewalkers have experienced and one you’ll never forget.

Shuttle Launch Experience
Shuttle Launch Experience is an incredible journey of vertically launching into space and orbiting Earth aboard the space shuttle. Guest “crew members” strap in for this all-too-real simulation, which immerses visitors in the sights, sounds and feelings of a space shuttle launch, designed under the guidance of NASA and veteran space shuttle astronauts.

Apollo/Saturn V Center
Located a short bus ride away (included in admission), the Apollo/Saturn V Center features a 363-foot moon rocket! Don’t miss the Firing Room Theater, which re-creates an Apollo launch and the Lunar Theater, which depicts the first moon landing. Get up close to the real Apollo 14 Command Module, the “Kitty Hawk.” Walk through a rare collection of prototype spacesuits and artifacts used during the Apollo program.
