It’s 3... 2... 1... launch as guests take their own exciting journey of the Space Shuttle’s rush to Earth’s orbit. On Shuttle Launch Experience®, visitors strap in to the sights, sounds and sensations of a real Space Shuttle launch.
The journey begins as passengers enter the Shuttle Launch Simulation Facility, a looming six-story structure that looks like the actual Space Shuttle facilities at Kennedy Space Center. As crew members ascend along the gantry, veteran astronauts share testimonials, setting the stage for the experience to come in our one-of-a-kind shuttle launch simulator.
Entering the heart of Space Shuttle operations for the pre-launch briefing, crew members are guided by veteran Space Shuttle Commander Charlie Bolden as he takes them step-by-step through the shuttle launch sequence. Brilliant video screens spring to life on shuttle-like robotic arms. Anxious moments arise as atmospheric sound and lighting effects dramatize the moments before your space shuttle launch experience.
Purchase your admission tickets at the online Kennedy Space Center ticket counter - and experience a shuttle launch simulator unlike any other.
