“Always a good thing...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

When we have an off day from the Disney thing we always make the trek out to KSC. It’s a bit pricy at $50 Adult and $40 child and now $10 to park, but well worth the long drive out. They have several life size animated displays and one of the best Space museums in the country next to the Smithsonian in DC. There is a bus that will take you out to various sights and launch pads that runs regularly never having to wait more than a few minutes. My only complaint is that is costs so much and is so far away from everything. Until the next space program starts up I can see that they will have a hard time staying up snuff.

“Educational and entertaining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This attraction has a high education factor and I would highly recommend to all, even if you are not into rocket ships and space. My wife who is usually not interested is such enjoyed all 6 1/2 hours and this alone speaks volumes. Having your own transportation is a plus, as this attraction is about an hour's drive from Orlando. A testimony to what mankind can achieve when working towards a common goal.....go see for yourself don't take my word for it!

“Blast off for the Space Center...if you can find it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We visited in October so the number of attendees did not seem overwhelming at all and the temperature was moderate. The admission and parking along with the 3 hour bus tour was around $78 per person...which seems a bit steep, but it is a one of a kind attraction. If you are a space and science kind of person, it is well worth the admission and time. I think the best value is joining the Commander's Club for $55 which eliminates parking cost and gives you the opportunity to get in again within a year's time.
