The Holidays Have Landed at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

The holiday season has landed early this year at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex! This season, guests can look forward to revamped festive experiences, and new virtual offerings for kids to enjoy over the holiday break.

Holidays in Space

Move over, pumpkins. As the fall holidays come to a close, the visitor complex will delightfully transform into a universe of twinkling lights and memorable experiences. This year, guests can experience magnificent 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 mosaic tree, thousands of lights in dazzling displays and much more. New to 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. The Winter Wonderland runs through December 31, 2021.

Kennedy Space Center Club Discovery

Over the holiday break, young space enthusiasts and future explorers 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 3-hour program, offered Monday, December 27 – Friday, December 31, will feature STEM activities that can be completed using normal household items. More information, as well as registration for the programs, can be found at the following link: KSC Club Discovery.

As always, the health and safety of employees and guests is the highest priority for Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. 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 sanitization 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.
