The Opening of Gateway @ Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Florida!

The future of space travel comes to life in Florida today, 15th June, with the opening of our Brand New attraction, Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex

With a focus on the present and future of collaborative space exploration, guests to Gateway can experience the interstellar travel of tomorrow while celebrating everything happening right now within the space program. It features a showcase of NASA and commercial spacecraft hardware with immersive displays, as well as a "journey" through space, a unique launch viewing opportunity and more.

Guests will also see a peek at the future of space travel with Spaceport KSC, an immersive experience with multiple journeys the guest can select to travel and learn through a thrilling simulated space flight.

The 50,000-square-foot, multi-level attraction rises majestically in the shadow of the Rocket Garden and is sure to engage and inspire guests through one-of-a-kind experiences, artifacts and exhibits. Featuring a comprehensive collection of modern-day spacecraft, Gateway gives guests the chance to see the airport of the future and experience the future of space travel in ways never before possible. Through immersive education, atmospheric effects and a motion theater, guests will see, experience and feel what it's like to travel in space.

Upon entering Gateway, "space travellers" are greeted with a futuristic design setting the stage for their journey. Visitors are surrounded by actual flight flown artifacts and full-scale models, placed around the floor and suspended from above to allow 360-degree viewing and interaction, including:

  • "Space flown" SpaceX Falcon 9 booster, officially known as Booster B1023
  • "Space Flown" Orion Exploration Flight Test-1 Capsule
  • Boeing Crew Space Transporation-100 Starliner Mock-Up Capsule (full-scale engineering model)

Gateway's second floor features a 30-foot, floor-to-ceiling Robotic Space Explorers Interactive Wall with interactive, touchscreen displays, where guests can learn about 40 different satellites and probes in space. Guests can also visit the HoloTube presentation station to learn about the high-powered James Webb Space Telescope by manipulating holographic imagery, video and animation through a touchscreen kiosk.

Gateway is included in General Admission and Tickets can be booked through your regular Florida Attraction Ticket provider
