The Orlando Eye on International Drive
This instantly iconic 400-foot tall observation wheel, which is a couple of feet bigger than the London Eye after which it was modelled, provides breathtaking views of Central Florida in all directions including sights of downtown Orlando’s skyline, nearby theme parks, lakes and lush landscape, and on a clear day, views of Cape Canaveral on Florida’s east coast.
The Orlando Eye offers a new way to enjoy the beauty and the magic of International Drive and is the perfect method to take a moment to escape from all the adventures that surround you. You’ll see Orlando like you’ve never done before, namely in a fully enclosed, air-conditioned capsule which is a little cocoon of tranquillity, and all of this located right in the heart of International Drive; just from above.
This observation wheel is actually part of a whole entertainment complex, called I-Drive 360, which is the city’s new $250 million entertainment destination. The Orlando Eye is the centrepiece of this metro-chic themed complex featuring a dynamic blend of attractions, restaurants, clubs and shops.
On top of the Orlando Eye, I-Drive 360 offers a unique line-up of attractions that are not only world-famous, like Madame Tussauds, but also highly entertaining. Sea Life Aquarium and Skeletons: Animals Unveiled! are two attractions that know how to excite not only the young ones and complement perfectly Orlando’s legendary other theme parks. The dining options are endless, from full service to fast casual and quick serve and all of this is easily accessible from a convenient parking structure.
I-Drive 360 is a place for high-energy entertainment but Orlando Eye is the perfect place to take a timeout for a 30-minute stretch, take a step back and wonder at the marvel of International Drive, its surrounding area and Orlando in general. Can you point out all the theme parks from a distance? But maybe it's not a challenge you're after but rather a moment of romance; it is a truly great place to enjoy the sunset; and unlike London; you'll actually get to see the sun.
Other Reasons to stay on International Drive:
- I-Drive is an ever-developing area with new attractions, entertainment opportunities and dining options opening on a monthly basis.
- It is the most convenient location to stay if you want to have quick access to all the famous attractions.
- Your children will be ecstatic since this is literally heaven on earth for the young travellers amongst us, but do not worry, grown-up kids will have just as much fun
