Gray Line transport will whisk you from Central Florida over to Cape Canaveral. Upon arrival at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Gray Line guests will be accompanied into the center by the guide who will give an orientation tour of the facility. They will get you into the Atlantis and ensure you have all the information you need to enjoy your day independently afterwards.

We are sure the highlight of your day will be the chat with an astronaut program. During this new experience, the Astronaut of the Day sits down in a casual, small-group setting to answer your most pressing questions. Enjoy a sampling of food and beverages while having a group conversation about what it is really like to live and work in space. With plenty of time for an engaging Q & A session, you are sure to leave feeling truly acquainted with a space pioneer and equipped with incredible stories to share for years to come. This program will either be at 10am or 2pm dependent on the day, and your tour guide will ensure you have all the details to be there ready!

Some of the attractions you can explore during the day will be:-

SHUTTLE ATLANTIS is the world’s most comprehensive attraction devoted to the space shuttle; it brings visitors nose-to-nose with the priceless Atlantis spacecraft as only astronauts have seen it before – with payload bay doors open as if it were floating in space. More than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators invite guests to “be the astronaut,” bringing to life the people, passion, and patriotism behind NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program as well as the complexity of the engineering marvel that launched the Hubble Space Telescope and built the International Space Station (ISS). Guests can conduct a virtual EVA or extravehicular activity; practice docking to the ISS; extract cargo from the payload bay; create sonic booms and glide to a landing on the Re-entry Slide; experience the sensation of floating in space; explore a high-fidelity replica of the ISS; virtually mate Atlantis to the external tank; kick up a virtual chemical reaction to launch the shuttle; get an “X-ray view” of Atlantis’ interior; experience an orbital sunrise; strap in to the sights, sounds and sensations of a shuttle launch; take the helm at the shuttle cockpit, and much more. This is the best expansion Kennedy Space Center has ever offered and gives you yet another reason to visit.

We also recommend seeing an IMAX movie - feel like you're walking on the moon or visiting the space shuttle on one of these 3D movie experiences.

On the NASA Bus Tour you get to tour restricted areas, walk beneath the massive Saturn V rocket and touch a piece of moon rock - definitely something not to be missed.

Finally ensure you, walk around the incredible rocket garden, ride the shuttle launch experience to outer space, dress up like an astronaut or have space ice cream!
