Guided tours help travelers maximize their appreciation of local landmarks and minimize their irrational fears of double-decker buses. Confront your sense of adventure with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a Kennedy Space Center Tour from Florida Dolphin Tours (up to a $99 value).
Operating an outfit of exciting and exotic excursions, Florida Dolphin Tours expands the horizons of visitors and locals with trips that illuminate some of the state's most illustrious elements. The Kennedy Space Center Tour shoots aeronautical aficionados to the fun's farthest reaches with an in-depth look at the wonders of deep-space travel. Thrill to the LC-39 observation gantry, which offers a bird's-eye view of Space Shuttle launch pads and astronauts prepping kegs of Tang. After strolling under a massive Saturn V rocket, space supporters may gravitate toward a number of entertainment options, including an IMAX showing of Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D, presented and narrated by Tom Hanks. Those stopping by the Visitor's Complex may meet a real-life astronaut, enjoy the comedic live action show Mad Mission to Mars 2025, or strap in for the Space Shuttle Launch Experience, in which guest crew members buckle in for an authentic simulator that replicates the sights, sounds, and intergalactic psych-rock soundtracks of an actual shuttle launch.
Galactic excursions conclude at the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, which boasts the world’s largest collection of personal astronaut mementos and the legendary Sigma 7 spacecraft, wherein Walter Schirra orbited the earth for nine hours while perfecting the art of zero-gravity gleeking. Guests can engage in even more astrological activities, including sitting in a mission-control console and learning NASA-sanctioned moonwalks.
- We cant [sic] put into words how good the tours were - we've done a lot of travelling and would say these were the best tours we have experienced. Recommended – Bezza23, TripAdvisor
