Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex adds fun, science-based ‘Activity Adventures’ to daily offerings
Wednesday 28, May 2014
The activities, each from 90 minutes to two hours, provide guests the opportunity to launch a water rocket, create and then land a rover on “Mars” or race a jet car.
Launched on April 15, the activities are offered at different times each day at the Visitor Complex, which recently extended its daily operating hours.
“We created these fun activities to engage guests and provide a fun way to learn about some of the incredible technology and science that they see at Kennedy Space Center,” said Therrin Protze, Chief Operating Officer for the Visitor Complex. “We want to continue to build on the approach we took in creating the new Space Shuttle Atlantis attraction, which features more than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators.”
The three Activity Adventures, which are offered in addition to regular admission, are:
The two-hour activity is offered daily at 4:30 p.m. Participants must be age 18 or older, but children can observe. Cost is $35 per guest.
The 90-minute activity is offered daily at 1:30 p.m. Participants must be age 11 or older. Cost is $25 per guest. Guests may take home the rovers they create.
The 90-minute activity is offered daily at 10:30 a.m. Participants must be age 8 or older. Cost is $25 per guest. Guests may take home the cars they create.
The Visitor Complex’s new extended hours are providing guests with more time for the Activity Adventures and to experience the new Space Shuttle Atlantis attraction and other destination highlights. Through Sept. 1, the Visitor Complex is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. It previously closed each day at 5 p.m.
