  • We did this on the way to a weekend retreat in Cocoa Beach, and really enjoyed it, especially for the discounted price through Reserve Orlando. The views are great, and the exhibits were intriguing, w...  read more »
  • Me and my husband went here on a day off just to see the view from the top. It was so much more. Gave good views of the port and 528. On the 6th floor there was a harbor pilot simulation that was a lo...  read more »
  • If you are looking for a tourist-y adventure but are short on time, this is the place for you. Go straight to the top and get a load of the view. It's A-maze-Ing. You can walk through all floors at yo...  read more »
  • As an adult for the price ($6.50), it's great. Lots of details that I probably missed. The giant touch screen table looked really cool with lots of info. Nice views from the observation deck. Could benefit from a few more binoculars. Maybe some facing towards inland Florida and not just the port/coast. I had my two kids (4 & 6). They liked the boat driving simulator. Wasn't a whole lot of other things to keep them interested for more than a split second. Some more hands on exhibits would be nice. But again for the price, I was happy.
  • WOW!! Awesome experience. Knowledgeable staff of the area and local space program. Super friendly. She even remembered us when we returned the next day. Just wish I remembered her name.
  • We were there for the July fireworks events with a group of 11 people. We all have VIP tickets. It was disappointing. They provide self serve snack but no staff to maintain it so it was very messy. The tower is very far from the actual fireworks and it doesn't turned off the lights for the show. The balcony space was also small and very crowded. The kids couldn't see anything behind the adults...we left.
  • Worth going once. Cheap to go in, order tickets online to save money. We went for a rocket launch so it was $15 but had a great view, otherwise regular admission online was $5. Great views of the port if you want to see cruise ships and stuff. Very small exhibit that gives the history of the area.
  • Nice place to visit if you are in the area. They advertise "clear view" on the rocket lunch, which is not true. There are two silos on the line of sight which block you from seeing the launch pad. One star removed because of that.
