Icon 360 Orlando (formerly called the Orlando Eye) is considered the largest ferris wheel on the American east coast, over 120 meters high. Since it opened in 2015, the attraction has become part of the Orlando landscape and the city’s tourist icon. Visiting the Orlando Eye is a great alternative to theme parks
Inspired by the London Eye, Icon 360 Orlando is a ferris wheel with 30 spacious cable cars (capacity for 14 people), with large glass windows to maximize the city view. The ideal is to visit it in the evening to enjoy the sunset or at night to see the fireworks from the parks.
The ferris wheel is part of the Icon Park attraction complex, formerly called I-Drive 360. Icon Park is located on International Drive in Orlando and offers several other attractions. The biggest StarFlyer in the world recently opened at Icon Park. Also scheduled for 2020 is the inauguration of the largest human slingshot in the world and the Gyro Drop Tower, another radical toy that will lift people to 120 meters in height and then drop them in free fall at 120 km per hour. What about?
At Icon Park you will also find the Sea Life Orlando aquarium, a branch of the Madame Tussauds wax museum, the Skeletons skeleton museum, among other attractions. The ferris wheel still remains the main attraction.
Next to the ferris wheel you will also have several shops and restaurants, such as the famous Shake Shack hamburger, Ben & Jerry, the Outback Steakhouse, Uncle Julio’s, Sugar Factory among others.
