Play Cosmonaut at Star CityStar City, Russia
Strap into a Soviet spacesuit, see how a g-force simulator operates and watch as astronauts test out zero gravity at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre. You can even see a full-size, water-submerged copy of the MIR space station. Explore the training centre with a tour guide and watch as astronauts jog around – heck, you could maybe even join them. Once a highly restricted zone, the heart of the Russian space program is now open for tourists.
Shuttle pick-up can be arranged from your hotel.
Tours start at US$172 per person.
You need to keep all your belongings on you at all times – if you leave something in another room, good luck trying to retrieve it.
