A new, fully-immersive multiple-story play experience is scheduled to land at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex January 1, 2021. Designed for a younger generation of space explorers ages 2 – 12, Planet Play is an indoor, interactive activity and learning area that will bring space right here to earth.
“We are over the Moon to bring an offering to our visitors that will interest an even younger generation in space exploration and interplanetary travel,” said Therrin Protze, chief operating officer, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. “This area will educate kids about technologies used in space exploration and the planets, in a fun, playful environment that we cannot wait to see come to life.”
Children will enjoy learning fun facts as they play among replicas of the planets in our solar system. There will be numerous interactive gaming and artistic components designed to create a memorable learning experience including opportunities to map a constellation, slide through a worm hole, walk on Saturn’s rings, and slide through an asteroid field. And, while kids play, parents can enjoy a coffee, beer and wine bar in a comfortable lounge while watching their tiny explorers learn about space.
Highlights will include:
Gravity Sink: A rope and netting structure for climbing
Storm of Neptune: Projection and lighting that will make use of theatrical equipment to accentuate the storms on Neptune, featuring sudden changes in intensity and location.
Nebulas: Scenic and lighting element will create a physical manifestation of a celestial Nebula
Black Hole Portal: A net climber tube with UV treated fabric woven to create a helix effect
The Sun: Play and climbing area lit to mimic the texture and movement of the surface of the sun
Rover Racers: Race one of NASA’s Rovers on Mars, avoiding obstacles and collecting samples
Toddler Play Area: With soft play and seating area for parents
Multiple climbing towers, slides, climbing wall, interactive video games, and much more.
As always, the health and safety of crew members and guests is the highest priority for Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex has implemented safety protocols to ensure a trusted space for the well-being of our crew and guests.
In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations, the visitor complex will continue all precautionary measures, including limited capacity and encouraging advance daily admission purchases; requiring face coverings and temperature screening for employees and guests; accommodating social distancing queues, restaurants, show viewing areas, and other facilities throughout the complex; and implementing increased frequency of sanitization and disinfection.
