  • My self and my fiancé, both in our 20's went here for the first time in Aug 2017, and it was amazing. A full days entertainment, we arrived at 11 am and didn't leave until 17:00 as there was so much t...  more »
  • I thought there was very little to see and say the KSC instead immediately impressed, well organized with a mixture of important information about missions and great entertainment .... I took the ticket to $50 to which I added the tour bus from $25 (nn required there are complimentary bus tour) in a day I saw essential and enjoyed ... in my judgment is a stop to insert into any tour in Florida.

  • We went from 13 pm thinking that it was very late because the Park closes at 7 pm but it was actually very sufficient the most important thing is to make the bus tour with visit to the ramps of launches (by far) and Assembly sheds you blow away the bus and it does not even stop , or if one or two minutes in the middle of nowhere it was nice to see the launch pads is one even when the or the space history started back on the site there is a little static exhibitions with model rockets in real size more equipment type combinations of astronauts... There is Imax which trace the history of the conquest of space including the conquest of the Moon and the space shuttle I regretted the lack of interactivity and the fact that the site is not spectacular for children it is important to see Ca Si we pass in Florida the problem is is that it is far away unless you're in Orlando again and that it's too expensive We paid $ 250 for 4 adults and a children, they do not even student prices while it's supposed to be cultural and historical I recommend but not in priority

  • This has to be one of the most interesting places I have been. If you like the idea of space travel then it's a must visit if you are in Orlando. We also did the kids challenge and a lunch with an astronaut. Well worth to keep the kids busy and very nice food accompanied by a funny and insightful speech from the astronaut. If you get there early like we did it is really quiet first thing. However probably due to having the astronaut lunch we were advised to do the bus your in the afternoon. We used the morning to do the close stuff. To be honest we should have spent a second day there. We ran out of time to do all that we wanted. So choose carefully on what you want to do if you want to fit everything in. Some mind testing challenges and great movies to view plus the launch pads and Saturn rocket to see. Don't miss the Atlantis shuttle either. A really good day out. Don't expect thrill rides but there are a couple of things like that to do. Highly recommended for those that like this sort of thing.
  • Amazing place to visit. Believe all the other reviews on how good it is. Plenty to do for at least 2 days. Bus tour is fascinating and you get a sense of scale of the place. Apollo is awe inspiring and Atlantis follows it up. Only criticism was that on a hot day you'd expect people to want to buy ice cream, so why only have 2 servers and a 20 minute wait?
  • Kind of hypnotic to see real rockets and shuttles, my eye kept getting drawn back. Great interactive displays which kept the kids interested too. Bus tour was a little disappointing, couldn't see as much as I'd hoped and struggled to hear the driver commentary. But overall there is more than a full day of amazing stuff here to do if you're even slightly interested in space!
  • If you have even the slightest interest in space or NASA don't pass this up. Plan at least half a day (whole day would be best) to see it all. This is where NASA shuttles and capsules go to retire. The best space experience you'll ever have. Don't miss the bus tour and Apollo/Saturn V pavilion. See the actual space shuttle. Amazing! Bring an umbrella if you bust in the afternoon.
  • The history here is mesmerizing! We all grew up watching the shuttles taking off from here but I had never visited the Center. It is WELL worth the trip from Orlando to see it. Good break from all the theme parks for kids to see some real life wonders.
