Shuttle Launch Experience

Kennedy Space Center opened the new Shuttle Launch $60M launch simulation on Memorial Day 2007.  Under the guidance of NASA and veteran space shuttle astronauts, this unprecedented experience duplicates the sights, sounds and sensations of launching into space fully vertical in launch mode position.

KSC is worlds apart from Orlando’s theme parks – but only 45 minutes away. Plan on a full day to explore NASA’s launch headquarters, located on a huge island wildlife refuge eight times the size of Manhattan.
