I’ve attempted to view the last three launches and missed each one due to delays. The tickets are for the actual launch mission, not a specific date which means they are not refundable. If you go, just be prepared that it’s a gamble to be there at the right moment. Each one has been delayed so you don’t really know what the actual launch date is until it actually launches. In each one of my cases, I planned for other activities in case the mission was scrubbed while I was there.
Also, you have to purchase specific tickets to see the launch from KSC. Any generic maximum access ticket will not work. You are also assigned credentials to allow you on the property the day of the launch as it is very restriced.
The tickets are at a minimum the same price as a regular maximum ticket, but it’s dependent on what you want to do that day. They offer lunch/dinner with an astronaut (depending on the time of the launch) which is extra as well.
Soundgod - too bad I didn’t know you were there in August. DW and I were there also.
