Orlando Eye

Famous Landmark and Attraction in Orlando Florida

The Orlando Eye is now one of the city’s most famous landmarks, elevating passengers 400 feet (122m) into the sky for some awesome panoramic views over downtown Orlando and Central Florida beyond.

Opened in April 2015, the circular structure replicates the design of many giant ‘ferris wheel’ attractions across the world (such as the London Eye and Singapore Flyer), and is officially classed as an ‘observation wheel’ because the motion is slow and steady – the only scary thing is the look down!

To get into one of Orlando Eye’s capsules it cost $20 when purchased online, with a whole host of other ticketing options available (such as flex passes, special occasions, groups etc).

Situated just off International Drive, the Orlando Eye is a little way out of the main city in the south-western suburbs. However, if the traffic isn’t too bad, it’s only a few minutes’ drive away from Disney, Universal and a little extra to arrive in Downtown Orlando.

The Orlando Eye boasts 30 capsules in total, which means you don’t have to queue and some of the time you’ll get your own private space (which is air-conditioned, by the way). Each capsule can hold up to 15 people, so if you’re planning to come in a large group it is best to book ahead (website link provided below).

As part of your ticket, passengers can also enjoy a ‘pre-flight 4D Cinema Experience’, which basically points out all the places of interest around the Central Florida region that you’ll be seeing for real when you head up to the top! Look out for the lush green everglades, sprawling Universal and Disney resorts, Downtown Orlando’s skyline and – on a clear day – you can even see all the way over to Cape Canaveral on the East Coast.

As part of the Merlin Entertainment Group, you can also buy combo tickets to the company’s other big-name attractions in Orlando, which include Madame Tussauds and Orlando Sea Life Aquarium; again, price details are all available online.
