The Orlando Eye

Merlin Entertainments brought world-wide attention to Orlando with the opening of The Orlando Eye. The attraction, located in Orlando's popular International Drive area, is fashioned after the world renowned London Eye and began taking passengers to new heights in Central Florida on May 4, 2015. Merlin Entertainments have also brought LEGOLAND Florida and the recently opened LEGOLAND Hotel to Central Florida and has two other attractions in the International Drive area of Orlando — Madame Tussauds and SEA LIFE Orlando.
The Orlando Eye, a massive Ferris wheel that the operators call an "observation wheel," towers an impressive 400 feet over Orlando with 30 air-conditioned capsules that can each carry up to 15 passengers. If the views were not enough, the capsules will include lighting and audio effects as well as interactive tablets which are all designed to enhance the passenger experience.

According to its official website, the wheel uses a new stabilized-driven system with a suspended ski-lift capsule design, ensuring a smooth ride aboard the attraction with none of the usual rocking or swinging that comes with normal Ferris wheels.

Combine the smooth ride with spectacular views and this sounds like an awesome experience that shouldn't be missed!

Location and Directions

The Orlando Eye is located in the heart of Orlando's International Drive. From either direction on I-4 take Exit 74A and turn onto Sand Lake Road (right if coming from the west and left if coming from the east). Make a right turn onto International Drive and make a left u-turn after .3 miles and follow signs to parking garage.


  • Get the most from your vacation dollars by choosing your experience, booking your Orlando Eye experience online in advance and simply show up 15 minutes prior to your reservation.
  • International Drive is notorious for heavy traffic, so allow extra travel time to arrive 15 minutes before your reservation. If you are staying in the International Drive area, use the I-Drive Trolley.
  • Weather may be a factor in the operation of The Orlando Eye. Lightning certainly poses a risk and it may be unsafe to operate during thunderstorms which are a frequent occurrence during summer afternoons.
  • Avoid the 4-D Cinema Experience if you have a sensory condition. This part of the attraction includes flashing lights, wind, sound, water and smells.
