Kennedy Space Center is a must-see adventure!! Well thought out and meaningful exhibits. A wide-variety of presentations from watching short video, to easy browsing of items/information, to hands on/simulated experiences of space travel. You can go at your own pace for most of it, and choose from restaurants for good food. Since this is about my "tour" of which Gray Line is partially responsible, I need to mention that my bus driver did not earn a tip from me! She handed me a brochure upon entering the bus, but failed to tell me it contained my "ticket". She only told us to get off bus, scan tickets, and meet her inside the gate. By the time I located my ticket and got scanned, she and the group had disappeared. She also miserably failed at telling us what time the bus would depart the Center. I had to call the office and find out. She knew I was upset, yet she also failed to make any apology. It's not rocket-science how to take care of your customers on a bus trip.

Be a part of history in the making as you explore the ins and outs of Kennedy Space Center on this out-of-this-world day tour. You’ll have access to restricted areas, walk under the massive Saturn V rocket, and even meet and greet an astronaut from the Space Program!

By riding the Gray Line Orlando bus, you will receive an exclusive welcome from an astronaut upon arrival at Kennedy Space Center. Only Gray Line guests have this meet and greet option, and it is an excellent added benefit. Should the meet and greet not be available, then there would be no refund as there are no surcharges for this great enhancement to your tour day.

One of the many highlights of your day will be the Shuttle Launch Experience, a space simulator that gives you a taste of what the astronauts feel when they lift off. You’ll also be able to view IMAX movies, giving you a 3D look into what it’s like to walk on the moon, and visit the rocket garden for a surreal experience surrounded by giant rocket ‘flowers.’

Give yourself enough time to explore Space Shuttle Atlantis! The world’s most comprehensive attraction devoted to the space shuttle, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex’s new Space Shuttle Atlantis brings visitors nose-to-nose with 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 guests to “be the astronaut,” bringing to life the people, passion and patriotism behind NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program as well as the complexity of the engineering marvel that launched the Hubble Space Telescope and built the International Space Station (ISS). Guests can 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; strap in to the sights, sounds and sensations of a shuttle launch; take the helm at the shuttle cockpit, and much more. This is the best expansion Kennedy Space Center has ever offered, giving you yet another reason to visit.

The Kennedy Space Center Tour is a can’t-miss chance to feel like a real astronaut!

Be sure to ride the Gray Line transportation to Kennedy Space Center - this tour is truly 'Out of This World'!
