The only Shuttle you can go into is Explorer in Houston, and that's not even a real shuttle. It's a replica made from the Space Shuttle's blueprints.

Some of that terrain does not appear at all level. Especially that shot approaching the launch area. Does that "roll out vehicle" have kick ass leveling stuff or what

It's not level. Especially approaching the launch pad. It gives you a taste of how strong the crawlers are.

So the shuttle/booster/tank assembly is secure enough that there is no risk from the incline. Just seems like alot of stress there

Great and informative photos

Correct. The shuttle is connected to the crawler by cords on the rear of the shuttle, and the SRBs are heavily bolted to the crawler. A couple minutes from launch, the bolts bolting down the SRBs will be blown. A few seconds before lift-off, the cords will let go of the shuttle, and they're off.
