The Kennedy Space Center's Shuttle Launch Experience

The Kennedy Space Center on Florida’s ‘Space Coast’ has an amazing attraction – the Shuttle Launch Experience

Posted: 24 August 2011

Guests enter a simulator which immerses visitors in the sights and sounds of a real Space Shuttle launch. Designed under the guidance of NASA and veteran astronauts, you will experience what it’s like to travel at 17,500mph – the closest you can get to the real thing. 

Visitors have to be at least four-feet tall, but smaller potential space rangers will have plenty of other attractions to amuse them, including IMAX films, rockets, interactive displays and even lunch with an astronaut.

The Kennedy Space Center is a 45-minute drive from Orlando International Airport, and is a must-see attraction during a family holiday to Florida. Admission is US$40 (£21) for adults, US$30 (£16) for children.
