Kennedy Space Center Review:

We visited the Kennedy Space Center a few years ago when we were living in the Tampa area for a month during the summer of 2020. We had heard rave reviews from other friends who had been so we knew we needed to make a point to take our children while we were in the area. The Kennedy Space Center is a great educational experience for children and adults with a lot of stimulating activities for young and old minds alike.

Things To Do at Kennedy Space Center:

There is so much to see and do at the Kennedy Space Center, and I'm sure we didn't even scratch the surface when we were there. Some of the major highlights of the space center are:

  • Astronaut Hall of Fame, showing pictures of all the men and women who have been to space
  • Rocket Garden, showing replicas of different space crafts that have left earth
  • Planet Play, large indoor space playground for kids
  • IMAX Theater, Planetarium spin on going to space in a life-like movie
  • Shuttle Launch Experience, A stimulator ride that replicates going into space

These are just some of the attractions. We went during the pandemic when a lot of things were closed, so we didn't get to do many of the things just listed, and what's currently listed on their website. I'm sure if we went now, there would be so much more to experience.

How to Save Money on Kennedy Space Center:

Going to the Kennedy Space Center is shockingly expensive. Adults are $75 per person, and children are $65 per person. At those prices, it would have cost our family $280 just for this one attraction. We had a good time there, but not a $280 good time, especially for all that was closed during COVID.

When we visited, we purchased the all-inclusive Go City Orlando pass which got us into Kennedy Space Center, Legoland Florida, and the Lowery Park Zoo all for one low price of $400. It looks like the prices on the Go City Passes have since gone up in price because they're currently listed for $1,006 for a family of four, which I can guarantee we did not spend when we bought our pass. Plus you could visit all three of those locations as a family of 4 for $700, so it's not saving you money.

I would look around at the available passes and see what makes the most sense for your family. If you're not interested in going to the other locations, then spending the regular price at Kennedy Space Center might make sense for you.

Accessibility at Kennedy Space Center:

Accessibility at Kennedy Space Center was pretty good for the most part. The only trouble we got into was when Kinsley wanted to go down a slide in the kids center and they literally would not let her because she had leg braces on. It turned into a whole to-do with management getting involved, but they still wouldn't let her go down the slide, it was a nightmare. Other than that, all other areas we went to were very accessible.

Overall Thoughts and Opinions:

Overall I would love to go back to Kennedy Space Center and see more of the attractions now that all of it is reopened from the pandemic, but we loved the things we were able to see and do while we were there.
