Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

You’ve heard of sleeping under the stars. But how about sleeping under a spacecraft that has traveled in space? Or a rocket that was designed to fly to the moon?

At Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, spend an incredible night exploring, discovering – and literally, dreaming – at our one-of-a-kind Overnight Adventure program, designed specifically for student/youth groups and scout troops , ages 7 to 14.

Choose from two thrilling locations – the Space Shuttle AtlantisSM attraction or the Apollo/Saturn V Center – and enjoy guided tours, simulators and shows, educational activities and demonstrations, as well as a special presentation and “mission briefing” from a veteran NASA astronaut!

Savor a delicious buffet dinner and a late night snack before unrolling your sleeping bag to drift off to sleep beneath the majestic Atlantis orbiter or the massive Saturn V moon rocket! The next morning, enjoy a continental breakfast before setting off to explore more of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
