Standing tall in the heart of bustling International Drive is the spectacular Orlando Eye. Located at I-Drive 360, the 400 foot tall structure is dubbed as an ‘observation wheel’, as opposed to a traditional ferris wheel, ensuring that you’re in for a smooth ride as you take in the incredible views.
The 30 air-conditioned capsules will send you soaring high above central Orlando, showcasing the city’s skyline, as well as the theme parks and the breath-taking scenery. If you’re there on a clear day, look out towards the east coast and you might even see Cape Canaveral in the distance.
This popular attraction might still only be relatively new, but it’s already high up on most people’s list of things to do in Orlando. It opened officially in May 2015 and each capsule can accommodate up to 15 passengers, so it’s definitely something that the whole family can enjoy together.
