Kennedy Space Center: Full-Day Tour with Airboat Safari Ride

1. Kennedy Space Center: Full-Day Tour with Airboat Safari Ride

Your tour to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex promises an exciting day for the whole family. Learn all about space travel on your visit to this amazing institution. During the narrated NASA bus tour, you will find yourself standing inside the launch control room and looking at an actual Saturn V rocket, the largest rocket ever to fly. You can also take pictures of the shuttle launch pads. With a little luck, you might even see a space shuttle there! Also at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, enjoy the Shuttle Launch Experience. This simulator ride began in May 2007 and replicates the sights, sounds, and feelings of a shuttle launch. Feel the incredible journey of launching into space and orbiting Earth from an astronaut's point of view. Guest Crew members strap in and go vertical for launch in a one-of-a-kind motion-based simulator, the only realistic simulation of a launch ever created. The 5-minute experience sequence culminates with a breath-taking view of the Earth. After the bus tour, sit back and enjoy an IMAX movie. Be sure to check out the new 3D IMAX Magnificent Desolation. Why not choose to stroll through a real-size space shuttle, look at a moon rock or try space ice cream? This is a day of fun for the whole family. Your tour includes a 30-minute airboat ride to discover the beauty of the nearby swamps! Look for exotic plants, flowers and wildlife including the most famous inhabitant of the swamp — the alligator.

Was a little disappointed that our jet boat ride got cancelled last minute but our driver was the absolute best!!! Jason made the trip enjoyable and provided gems of knowledge that just added to the experience. He made sure that we got the full experience and directed us on the best way to utilize our time there. He is prompt and courteous and just really made the tour worthwhile. I highly recommend him and would request him as our driver again in a heartbeat!
