GETTING TO KNOW YOU
What did you want to be when you grew up? A pilot
If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life what would it be and why? Love a full English, (no fried bread or black pudding), scrambled egg with grilled bacon & sausage and brown bread ……So its good for you!
What movie title best describes your life? Apollo 13…… It nearly all goes badly wrong but somehow it all works out in the end…..
If you were stranded on a Desert Island and could only take 3 items what would they be and why? A football – so I could try and beat my keepy up record of 259. A massive box of matches as trying to start a fire by rubbing 2 sticks together would drive me mad! A combined compass and atlas – so when I built my escape boat I would know where to go……
Would you rather be able to time travel into the past or the future and why? The past, the future should be a surprise!
How would you describe your theme park / attraction using only 3 words? Past….present…..future
What was the highlight of 2017 for your company? A record number of launches from KSC & Cape Canaveral, numerous satellites, resupply missions to the International Space Station and so much more!
What are you most looking forward to in 2018? Hopefully the first test flight of the SLS Space Launch system, the largest rocket ever built which will one day take man to mars and beyond!
Favourite Theme Park ride/attraction of 2017? The Shuttle Launch Experience has remained ever popular this year, it’s a 7 ½ minute rocket ride to space!
What is going to be BIG for your company in 2018? New Mars Exhibits and the Mars Rover Concept Vehicle on Display at the Visitor Complex!
Best Theme Park/attraction tip? Always get to KSC early (Gates open at 9) as it gets very busy especially in the summer months and make sure you jump on one of the KSC buses to the Saturn V Center and see the rocket that took 12 men to the moon!
Tell us something we don’t know about Florida… South of KSC is Fort Lauderdale which is known as the Venice of America because the city has 185 miles of local waterways!
Of course the movie title answer was going to be space related, we can always count on Philip to get involved! You can purchase your Kennedy Space Center tickets here for as little as £36.00.
