Real Florida Adventures Kennedy Space Center Tour & Dine with an Astronaut

When you want to take your space exploration a step further, what better way to enhance your visit to Kennedy Space Center than dining with one of the few people who actually make it all happen – one of NASA’s very own astronauts.

Not only will you be whisked to the Visitor Complex with all the convenience and efficiency of Real Florida Adventures transport, but you will also be first in line for one of THE great personalized experiences the Space Center has to offer.

Set in a purpose-designed venue away from the main centre, you will be introduced to some common astronaut traditions – including training in the T-38 jet, visiting the Astronaut Beach House, and staying in crew quarters before a launch – before the Main Event, lunch with a seasoned veteran of the space program.

After your chef-prepared meal, there will be a full presentation from the featured astronaut, who will talk visitors through their experiences of that first launch, subsequent missions, and what it’s like to live and work in space.

Be sure to have some questions up your sleeve for the subsequent Q&A opportunity with the day’s representative of NASA’s astronaut corps, and be ready for the highlight of a photo opportunity with him or her, and a memory to last a lifetime.

Of course, you will still have plenty of time to explore the rest of the Space Center and soak up the amazing, dynamic vibe of the modern KSC, which has been dramatically revamped in recent years to really immerse visitors in both the history and the future of space exploration.

There is a LOT to discover, but don’t miss the awe-inspiring Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, complete with the Shuttle Launch Experience, the Heroes & Legends centre, incorporating the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, the majestic Rocket Garden, and the fabulous IMAX Theater, with its larger-than-life movie features.
