Florida’s only giant observation wheel can be found in the heart of the tourist district on International Drive.
Towering 400-feet above the city, the Orlando Eye’s state-of-the-art capsules provide unparalleled views of Central Florida. On a clear day, riders can easily spot iconic attractions like Hogwarts Castle, Space Mountain and the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.
The 30 air-conditioned passenger capsules can carry up to 15 people.
The Orlando Eye is part of a larger entertainment complex called I-Drive 360 which includes Madame Tussauds, SeaLife Aquarium, Skeletons: Animals Unveiled, and several shops and restaurants.
Tickets for the attractions can be purchased individually or in packages. The Orlando Eye Flex Ticket, which includes the 4-D Cinema Experience along with a 20-minute ride on the Eye, is $25 for adults and $20 for kids between 4 and 12.
