The bus tour takes you close, and we had some extra viewing of hem teating the crawler transport machine. Pretty amazing, he bus tour drivers give you a lot of information and history...

Unbelievable feeling is to see the launching areas from where many of the space shuttles were launched into the big blue... Just incredible.

We really enjoyed the bus tour of the Launch Complex. Our tour guide was witty and very educated in everything NASA/KSC. We took our time to browse the Launch Complex - so much to see and do and touch and enjoy. Very entertaining and educational.

This is part of the bus tour included with your admission at the Space Center. You get to visit a mission control center with a presentation of a launch. Then you get to see a beautifully displayed rocket above you. Food and merchandise is available as well. Great educational experience.

I'd of given this an excellent, but you are in a bus and can see the buildings from the bus, but you cannot get out and take photos. You have to do it through the windows. I guess this is for security reasons, but it's not the best experience you can have. They should have landing pads built in photo... More

This is part of the general admission tour when you purchase a ticket for $50. The bus tour will take you out to see the launch pads and drops you off at a building to view a Saturn V rocket. I thought the bus ride was OK, the driver talked rather fast and when he mentions buildings, you really cannot... More

It is definitely an impressive facility and the bus tour gets you fairly close. It weaves through the various sites and alongside the massive crawler used to carry the vehicles. Given that most of the land is a wildlife preserve we were able to see wild pigs, a gator mother and her brood, eagles, ospreys and other critters.

It was a cool experience seeing the launch complex. It's part of the bus tour which I would recommend doing first once you arrive at the Space Center.
