It's about four miles from the Causeway to LC-40.

The price of the ticket includes daily admission ($70 for adults) and the launch ($20 for adults). This does not include admission parking ($10 per car).

If you already have the annual Commander's Club pass, you need to call the Reservation Department at (866) 737-5235 to order launch tickets.

Keep in mind that you don't have to enter Kennedy Space Center to watch the launch. You can pull off the side of the road on the 528 Causeway (the Beachline) as it crosses the Banana River, or roadside on SR-401 north of Port Canaveral. Both offer prime views of LC-40 about twelve miles away.

  1. There are now "no parking" signs on 401 and police is enforcing them.
