Space-lovin’ kiddos and their parents will want to make tracks for Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex soon, as the center has added new attractions and continues to impress with family-friendly amenities.

 

One of the complex’s new features is hard to miss, front and center upon guests’ arrival. The new Kennedy Entrance Experience is a six-minute film displayed on a 3,000-square-foot screen as guests enter. The film traces the history of the U.S. space program.

 

This spring, the center introduced a new, immersive entertainment experience featuring puppetry, lights, sounds — and beloved Peanuts characters. The 20-minute show is part of an effort to extend the center’s “multigenerational appeal” to its youngest visitors. 

 

“This new show will delight guests of all ages as it features the loveable Peanuts characters and Snoopy, who has contributed to the excitement for NASA human spaceflight missions for more than 50 years,” said Therrin Protze, CCO, Kennedy Space Center.

 

This summer, the center also celebrated one year of Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex, a major attraction looking at the present and future of space exploration and interplanetary travel, including interactive exhibits and artifacts. 

 

Additionally, in July, the center was recognized as a Certified Autism Center, assuring it remains friendly and accessible to travelers with sensory sensitivities. In order to achieve certification, center staff underwent specialized training, sensory guidance signage has been placed around the visitor complex, a sensory guide is available online and at the center, and areas around the complex have been designated as low sensory areas.
