The Orlando Eye is Finally Looking Majestic over International Drive
Nothing brings more joy to Orlando visitors than to see an iconic attraction as it towers over the flat Central Florida landscape—and the Orlando Eye is an impressive sight for both locals and visitors alike.
The Orlando Eye is a massive Ferris Wheel attraction under construction in the heart of International Drive, one of the most popular tourist and business travel districts in the city known for its larger-than-life theme parks. The structure—which once built will have a height of 400 feet—is located near the intersection of International Drive and Sand Lake Road and is surrounded by a variety of new restaurant concepts, attractions and exhibits designed to cater to families on vacation and convention travelers alike.
Riders of the Orlando Eye will get a chance to see as far as the Kennedy Space Center from the highest point in one of 30 capsules with a maximum capacity of 15 people in a ride that will last under half an hour. The Orlando Eye may also be familiar to European visitors since this structure is a sibling of the London Eye and once inaugurated, Orlando will be home to the fifth tallest Ferris Wheel attraction on the planet—and that’s just the beginning.
Recently, it was revealed that another towering attraction will be opening on International Drive—the Skyscraper—which will be crowned as the tallest roller coaster in the world, featuring a four-minute ride that defies gravity and give riders some of the most impressive views of I-Drive yet. And of course, all of these amazing attractions are opening just-down-the-road from Vista Cay Resort by Millenium.
Get ready to enjoy the adrenalin-pumping rides that will be the envy of Orlando’s top theme parks and book your stay early to ensure you get a great price for an amazing Orlando vacation!
