Orlando’s National Treasure Right Next Door at The Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex

Travelers from around the world come to Central Florida everyday. Most visitors are not aware that Orlando has a very unique national treasure within an hours drive, the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex. Mixed in with the Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld, Kennedy Space Center was here before them all. When you say NASA to pretty much anyone on the planet, they understand what and where you are talking about. This was the place to be back in the late 1960’s as this was the place where we sent our brave astronauts to the moon,

The Kennedy Space Visitors Complex in Cocoa Beach, Florida is only about a 50 minute ride from the Orlando attractions. The entire experience can be visited in a day while some spend a few days engaged in their behind the scene’s adventures. If one was a science and space admirer, then there are a few very things one could do to make their dreams of spaceflight come true while staying here on good old terra firma. First and foremost the standard KSC ticket gets you pretty the whole shabang! This ticket will allow you to visit the welcome center where they have the rocket garden, IMAX-3D, Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit with the Shuttle Launch Experience as well gift shops and places to grab a bite to eat.

The next step of the adventure will take you on a restricted area tour that transports you by bus to the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Here you can stay as long as you like while observing a real life Saturn V rocket that is on display. Have you ever wanted to touch the moon? Here you can do just that. Touch the moon and talk with actual Astronauts about their experiences flying in space. If you are one of the lucky travelers on a special day of a rocket launch, the Saturn V building is the place to be. Check with the current calendar for these once in a lifetime opportunities!

If the general admission ticket is not enough, check out the upgrades and have lunch with an astronaut. Here you will have a buffet lunch all while listening to a guest astronaut speak of their space explorations. You can even ask that question you have always wanted to know about traveling in space! Next you can check out the KSC- Up-Close Tour or visit mission control at the KSC-Close Launch Control Center Tour. Whatever the experience is, the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex has a little bit of everything for everybody.

The new permanent $100 million Exhibition is a dream come true experience for many. It promises some of the most thrilling and breathtaking sights, including 360-degree view of its centerpiece attraction and the world’s first reusable spacecraft- The Atlantis Space Shuttle. Thanks to KSC (Kennedy Space Center) for this unique opportunity.

After accomplishing 33 historic space missions, the nation’s most iconic space orbiter is now made available in such amazing and enticing display for all to explore. The loyal Floridians and KSC admirers also believed that no other space shuttle in the US is dedicated to this magnitude of showmanship. Moreover, the new Atlantis Exhibit is seen as a much welcomed addition to Florida’s ever-expanding space arsenal and is expected to boost visitors’ attendance by large numbers.

According to the many visitors and fans at the recently held grand preview party, it is all about getting up-close encounters with a real and incredible Space Ship for the first time in life. It appears as if the giant Shuttle is flying in space. From its meticulously perched angle, 30 feet above the ground, it unfolds the priceless story of an incredible engineering marvel, just inches away from the thousands of awe inspiring gazes. And as you delve in – you will be wowed by the jaw-dropping sights of this majestic orbiter- be it the opened payload bay doors or views of the outstretched robotic arm. Bathed in electrifying lighting, the mighty orbiter promises to fulfill the most fancied space dreams ever.

The space shuttle Atlantis is one of NASA‘s most beloved and nostalgic space-crafts that has ever landed for public viewing that is on a permanent display basis. While it becomes the dream shuttle for all the viewers and onlookers now, the giant orbiter also reflects a bitter sentiment with many. For the former astronauts and those who had worked with the Shuttle during its good old days, it’s a bit difficult to accept the amazing machinery as a mere show-piece. But at the same time they have also expressed their feelings of pride while viewing the space craft in such magnificent and exhilarating display.
