What's Included

Attractions:

  • Space Shuttle Atlantis: 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.
