Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex release
Celebrate World Space Week with Kennedy Space Center GeoTour Scavenger Hunt

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will celebrate World Space Week 2014 and its theme of "Space: Guiding Your Way" with the Kennedy Space Center GeoTour that will take participants on a scavenger hunt with prizes throughout the state of Florida.

The Kennedy Space Center GeoTour kicks off Oct. 6 as part of World Space Week (WSW), which is observed annually Oct. 4-11. WSW is an international celebration of science and technology supported by the United Nations General Assembly.

In honor of this year's WSW theme, the Visitor Complex and Groundspeak, Inc., the company that created Geocaching.com, are partnering to bring guests the Kennedy Space Center GeoTour. The interactive experience allows guests to use the free Geocaching application and the Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates of Central Florida with their very own geo-trackable marble.

Ten different cache locations throughout Florida house a specific password. Cache locations can be found through this website going live Oct. 6. Users may download a passport from here. Users then present their passport to the will-call window at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex to receive their trackable item and special admission offers.

Geocachers who bring their passport to the will-call window will receive:
  • For a 20 percent completed passport, receive a $5 off admission coupon and a trackable item
  • For a more than 50 percent completed passport, receive a Buy One Get One Free admission and a trackable item
  • For a 100 percent completed passport, receive a Buy One Get One Free admission, a retail item and a trackable item
The Geocaching app is free. Admission or an annual pass is required for entry to the Visitor Complex. The KSCVC GeoTour will continue through 2015.

All times are CT (US)
