There are few people in the world who'll get closer than this to experiencing taking off into space than the Shuttle Launch Experience at the Kennedy Space Centre. Here you can walk/ climb around real space capsules (Apollo, Atlantis, Mercury and Gemini), and watch footage recorded over several missions in the 3D Imax theatre.

Sign up to lunch with an astronaut. You'll have a yummy meal and meet a veteran member of NASA's Astronaut Corps.

Ok it's not as flashy as the theme parks, but this is the real thing – real 'Mission Control', the real launch pads, real shuttles and real stories.
