The Orlando Eye - Review
As the name suggests, the Orlando Eye offers you a journey of the bird’s eye view of this lively city and across. Also known as the ‘City Beautiful’, Orlando looks simply captivating and mesmerising from above. This giant wheel effortlessly lifts you up to 400 feet and lets you experience breath-taking 360 degree views of surrounding Central Florida. Located at I-Drive 360, the Orlando Eye acts as the tallest observation wheel on the east coast of the USA. Its slow rotation lets you have a view of the city from all the angles. Each capsule contains Apple iPad Air tablets that further allow you to explore and learn more about the landmarks and surroundings in several languages and effectively see beyond what the eye can see. Experience it to enjoy the panoramic views of the city.

The Orlando Eye, Orlando Reviews
This attraction was available with the Orlando city pass; which is something I advise you get for at least a day. Line moved quick, attendants were friendly... one of them took a great family picture with wheel in background. The views are great (for Orlando); I suggest going right around dusk where you can see all the lights but still have enough light to get good pictures with your phone... both inside the ferris wheel carriage and outside. Would have given 5 stars if the carriage windows allowed for better pictures. The tinting made it harder to take good nighttime photos.
We visited the ICON right at sunset and couldn't have asked for a better view. We boarded right as the sun was setting, and by the time we got to the top, we had the last few moments of color from the sunset overlooking the whole city. The views are spectacular; and each party gets to ride in a car by yourselves. The units are air-conditioned, and there are screens on both the north and south ends of the car giving you information on what you're looking at. The whole ride takes about 20-22 minutes. The only downsides to this experience is the price is a bit steep; but it's in a heavy tourist area and was to be expected. You also cannot bring any food and drink into the car that isn't purchased through ICON. However, they do have a small bar with beer, wine and soda right before entering the car. Overall, it was a very cool experience!
It really is a cool way to 'see Orlando'. Staff is always friendly. The popcorn and drinks are good too 😂. Something special and different for vacationers and locals. And not expensive.
You have to do this at least once. It is inexpensive and can be done fairly quickly. It is constantly moving but so slow you can't even tell. Nice view point from the top.
Coming here at night is really nice. It was not very busy when we came and we we're probably one family of a few that jumped on. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Parking was free and so we didn't feel like we were being extorted as tourists. The ride is about 20 minutes, so grab a sangria before jumping on.
