“Awe inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Loved to see the actual space shuttle that was retired to the space center. The talk that was broadcast over the speakers in the rocket garden was also very interesting. The 11 and 9 year old really liked it once they got over the fact that there weren't any major rides. They did like the two story slide inside the shuttle area though. It was good to get out of the Disney area for the day and Kennedy was both educational and amazing.

“Nearly watched a rocket launch!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

But sadly on the day we were there it failed to launch!! This place was great and I loved the 3d movies. Going on the coach to see the launch sites and also the wildlife was great. The tour guide was sooooo knowledgable. A must see place.

“Childhood dream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Always wanted to go here. Booked from the UK - much better value. There had been a strike and we wasn't sure whether we would be able to go to the second part - but all was well. My favourite parts were the Atlantis shuttle story/exhibition and the Mission Control room. Could have spent longer there but it was enough with the little ones.

“Atlantis Shuttle at KSC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

This was our first trip back to KSC since the Atlantis Shuttle had opened. A wonderful day trip from Orlando if you are there visiting. Try to plan a day when there is a Astronaut visiting for great pictures. The Atlantis Shuttle is fantastic and you learn so much about the shuttle program from tours. Make sure you see the 3D Imax theater when you visit.

“Nice Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I had visited this many many many moons ago, but thought it would be nice to see it again. It was very nice to see the shuttle inside tour. Good for kids and adults, there was a good bit of walking inside.
