The holidays have landed at Kennedy Space Center

Sunday, Nov 27, 2022 0

Holiday season guests can look forward to revamped festive experiences, and new virtual offerings for kids to enjoy over the holiday break.

Holidays in Space

As the fall holidays come to a close, the visitor complex transforms into a universe of twinkling lights. This year, guests can experience holiday décor throughout the park – from the transformation of the big NASA meatball that greets guests at the entrance into a holiday ornament, wreaths adorning every lamp post, a reimagined holiday tree, thousands of lights and much more. New for this year’s Holidays in Space will be a winter wonderland, beginning December 17 and located next to the Atlantis attraction. This free-standing experience sponsored by Pepsi Zero Sugar, will take place under a large enclosure and feature holiday-themed, engaging and interactive education stations, holiday photo opportunities, performers, a DJ and more. It runs through December 31, 2021.

Kennedy Space Center Club Discovery

Over the holiday break, young space enthusiasts can experience Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex from the comfort of their homes through a virtual Kennedy Space Center Club Discovery experience. At $30 per person, kids in grades 3 – 6 will have the chance to participate in one of two virtual missions: Spacewalk or Moon Base. Each three-hour program, offered Monday, December 27 – Friday, December 31, will feature STEM activities that can be completed using normal household items.

In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations, the visitor complex continues to operate at a limited attendance, accommodating social distancing, encouraging advance daily admission purchases, and implementing increased frequency of sanitisation and disinfection.

The visitor complex has updated the face mask policy. All guests, including those vaccinated against Covid-19, are required to wear face coverings in all indoor locations, except when actively eating or drinking. This includes all attractions, attraction queues, show viewing areas, restaurants and buses. Guests who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 are not required to wear face coverings outdoors.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is open daily from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.  Admission is $57 + tax for adults and $47 + tax for children ages 3 – 11. For more information visit
