The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will reopen next week, one day after the planned launch of SpaceX’s first manned flight.
The complex will limit daily attendance, encourage visitors to buy tickets in advance. Even annual passholders are being asked to call the complex in advance to book a reservation at 1-855-433-4210. Some attractions will not be open, including the Kennedy Space Center bus tour.
Face coverings and temperature screenings will also be required, along with social distancing in lines, restaurants, and other facilities. If you have a temperature of 100.4 or greater you will not be allowed in the complex. If you don’t have a face covering, you will be asked to purchase one. There will also be increased sanitizing stations.
KSC is offering a limited time package for the initial opening that includes daily admission, parking and a complimentary ticket to return in 2021. This “Explore Today, Explore Tomorrow” package will be $29.99 for adults and $24.99 for children.
