Central Florida gets ready for the Grand Opening of I-Drive 360 and its Orlando Eye on I-Drive
With all its capsules already locked in place and testing underway, the wait is almost over and the entertainment complex is almost ready to rock
As the centerpiece attraction of the new I-Drive 360 entertainment complex—built on top of the old Mercado Shopping Center, popular during the 80s and 90s—the Orland Eye is poised to become a point of reference for visitor in the International Drive Area. The 400 feet-tall structure will give its riders a bird’s eye view of the area. However, there is more at ground level than meets the eye from above.
Over the past decade, people who have visited Central Florida on vacation or business travels have seen an evolution of the International Drive area between Universal Studios and SeaWorld. The roads have been repaved, the sidewalks have been enhanced, new I-Ride trolley stops have been set up, and new and exciting restaurant and attraction concepts have sprung up. Still, nothing compares to building what is being dubbed as a mini-theme park in the heart of this busy tourist district.
I-Drive 360 is strategically located in the heart of International Drive, allowing easy access by pedestrians and cars. The complex has a multi-story parking garage that allows you to drive and park next to the I-Drive 360 attractions. In addition, the entire complex has been landscaped and developed to make it easy to walk around and enjoy the restaurants and bars that are already a part of the vibrant I-Drive night life—a favorite for both tourists and convention visitors alike.
