went into parking area, $10 fee and was directed to parking at least 400 meters from entrance, explained my exercise intolerance (waiting for my handicapped placard) after viral infection of heart and they directed me to closer lot which was completely full. I then went back to entry and they said that they could not return money, and directed me... More

I thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We were lucky enough to view a launch while there. Tickets gave us access to everything I wanted to see. Lots of merchandise available. Lines weren't the best but all in all a great experience. Plan on walking 3 or more miles

We loved this day trip. To see an Apollo rocket up close was fantastic and the Atlantis space shuttle was fantastic too. Our girls learned so much, but it was done in such an interesting way that it didn't feel like being force fed with facts. Highly recommended for families of pretty much all ages. The drivers on the tour... More

Although the complex is hugely informative, I thought that at almost $100.00 a ticket, it was overly priced. True there was history ands invaluable information, the fact is, it is grossly over priced for taxpayers that have already invested in the space program. Additionally $10.00 to park is just stupid. I took a family of 5, which put me well... More

All of the money taken goes to help fund the Space Centre. With these prices (plus $10 parking) they could fund the entire space programme !! You probably feel you have to do this, I did, but it is not really worth the money. A big disappointment for me as this was always close to the top of my all... More

This is not for children under 10 and I don't care if they have children attractions. You will miss out on everything here if you are bringing a young child to KSC. The Atlantis exhibit is huge and so much to read and learn. It was excellent. We arrived after 12:30 with a reluctant 20 year old and left at... More

We planned an extra day before our cruise out of Port Canaveral to spend time at KSC. While I gasped at the $50 per person charge and winced at being charged $10 for parking (how else are you going to get out there?), we spent nearly 6 hours there and walked away with a sense of amazement at what the...

Our second visit here and with the addition of Atlantis and exhibit area this is now a full day out, fantastic if your into space and the history of how it all began exploring. IMAX is great, both shows a must see, kids mom and dad all enjoyed once again :)

We were on our fourth or fifth visit to Orlando, so I was eager to add some more unusual things to keep our teenage son interested. Kennedy Space Center is less than an hour away (via a toll road) and fit the bill. KSC is very well done, with the right mix of history and spectacle. You really have no... More

Don't miss the Atlantis building and the Saturn exhibit! The food at the cafe was typical tourist trap fare but the trip was well worth it!
