Great news from Kennedy Space Center – later this month, guests at the Visitor Complex will be able to go back into orbit with the official re-opening of the Apollo/Saturn V Center.
The attraction, which has been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will now have new health and safety guidelines in place.
Kennedy Space Center visitors will need to use a kiosk near the bus transport entrance to reserve a departure time as well as a spot on the bus.
Once on board the bus, passengers will be space apart to allow for social distancing. Face masks are required.
Drives will be routinely disinfecting the buses after each trip to and from the Apollo/Saturn V Center.
The Apollo/Saturn V Center is an interactive exhibit that takes guests through NASA’s Apollo Program from the first launch to the Moon landings.
Visitors can also get a look at one of only three Saturn V rockets in the world- the attraction also features interactive exhibits about the Apollo Program—from the first Apollo launch to the moon landings that followed.
Other experiences at the center have also been enhanced, including the moonscape where youngsters can learn about the importance of the first moon landing as well as projection mapping on the Saturn V that displays actual footage from the event.
Although the Moon Rock Café will not be reopening for now, visitors will be able to purchase light snacks at the gift shop.
