The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is yet another option to the busy amusement parks in the city and is just as much a part of Orlando’s culture as Mickey and Minnie. The Titusville, Florida, space complex is worth a visit, especially for those with an interest in NASA history, even though it is located about 45 miles east of downtown Orlando. The U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, a garden full of different rockets, astronaut training simulators, and the space shuttle Atlantis are among the items and exhibits that can be found there. Additionally, you may view IMAX films with a space theme, have a tour of the property’s facilities, or even have your picture taken with an actual astronaut.
The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will appeal to both space enthusiasts and families. Most of the people who have been there before said that there is a lot to do there, especially on a rainy day, and some said that you could spend the whole day there. For the standard price of $57 for adults and $47 for children, one day of entry is included. It could be worthwhile to shell out an extra $20 to $25 for a multiday ticket because this attraction will take the majority of a day (if not several days) to visit. With this upgraded ticket, you’ll get a parking card that lets you park for free once after your first visit. You’ll also get a year of unlimited visits and discounted admission for up to six people in your group.
Any ticket you buy will give you access to most of the property’s exhibits and activities, as well as a bus tour, IMAX movies, an astronaut meet-and-greet, a place to watch rocket launches when they are scheduled, and a place to watch rocket launches. There are also a lot of stores (including the biggest space memorabilia store in the world), bathrooms, a buffet restaurant, and seven fast-food restaurants. There is no available public transit between the attraction and Orlando, but you can park your car for a fee in the on-site lot. Daily hours of operation are from 9 a.m. until 6 or 7 or 8 p.m.
