Is any viewing of the falcon heavy launch visible from the $75 rocket garden ticket? Just trying to decide if it would be worth the money.

    $\begingroup$ The Visitor Center is about as close as you can get to the launch of the Falcon Heavy. But the landing of the boosters (um, if they make it...) is best viewed from Jetty Park and Pier, 400 Jetty Park Rd, Port Canaveral, FL 32920. google.com/maps/d/… $\endgroup$

From the KSC Rocket Garden website, a $75 ticket gets you access to the KSC Visitor Complex. More expensive tickets get you closer (down to about 4 km).


Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, approximately 7.5 miles/ 12 kilometers with rocket visible shortly after lift off

12 km is very far away, the rocket will be a speck on the horizon, comparable with an airliner flying over at cruising altitude.
