LAUNCH VIEWING

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers the closest public viewing of launches with the purchase of a launch viewing/transportation ticket. Availability of viewing opportunities and locations is dependent upon the scheduled launch time and is subject to NASA and U.S. Air Force approval. 

Check back for updates on confirmed launch date and time, along with launch viewing opportunities. 

If launch transportation and viewing opportunities are available, tickets become available for purchase as soon as possible before the launch date and may be purchased online using the VIP Launch Viewing tab. You must purchase a daily admission ticket or an annual pass in order to use launch viewing/transportation tickets. Viewing locations offer bleacher seating and launch commentary with access to restrooms, dining and souvenirs. After arriving and parking at the visitor complex, launch viewing/transportation ticket holders are transported by bus from the inside the main visitor complex to special viewing areas at Kennedy Space Center, behind NASA security gates. Security protocol requires that all ticket holders must be transported only by visitor complex tour buses to these secure facilities. Boarding for launch viewing/transportation ticket holders begins up to three hours before the scheduled launch time as it takes time to load and transport ticket holders by bus.
