Holy space mission, y’all! America’s got some new astronauts, and they’re not just any old astronauts, they’re Artemis 2 and… wait for it… Artemis 2? Did someone forget how to count to 3? Whatever, we’ll roll with it.
But while we’re on the topic of space, let’s talk about some of the awesome space attractions in the good ol’ U.S. of A. Because let’s be real, who doesn’t love a good space-themed adventure?
America’s favorite beagle, Snoopy, just landed at the newly transformed Universe Theater (sponsored by Northrop Grumman) at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. He’s joined by his Peanuts pals in an immersive experience called “All Systems Are Go,” which features state-of-the-art puppetry, lights, sounds, and of course, space travel.
Guests can join Snoopy and Woodstock as they train for the next NASA mission, Artemis, testing the Orion spacecraft and even visiting other planets. It’s a 20-minute adventure that’s out of this world, full of history, education, and imagination.
According to Therrin Protze, the chief operating officer of the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, they’ve been working hard to make sure this new show appeals to multi-generational audiences, including the littlest space explorers. And with an original score featuring an eclectic mix of orchestral, contemporary, and jazz styles, and an interactive experience that allows guests to reveal hidden space elements and create a unique music sequence, they’ve certainly gone above and beyond.
“All Systems Are Go” was created by the brilliant minds at Montreal-based production company, Monlove, and is sure to delight guests of all ages. Plus, with admission to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, you can explore other epic space attractions like Heroes & Legends, featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, Space Shuttle Atlantis, and the Apollo/Saturn V Center.
But wait, there’s more! If you’re a true space enthusiast, you won’t want to miss the all-new Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex. This cutting-edge exhibit allows guests to experience the journey to Mars, including a simulated launch, landing, and exploration of the Red Planet. Plus, you can check out the Rocket Garden, Planet Play, and the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, where you can touch a piece of actual Moon Rock.
And if you’re worried about the cost of admission, fear not! Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex now offers a two-day ticket for just $89 per adult and $79 per child, which can be used for up to six months from purchase. That’s less than $45 per day, y’all!
So pack your spacesuit and head on over to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex for an adventure that’s truly out of this world. See you in orbit!
