Owner description: ICON Orlando is the tallest observational wheel on the North American east coast! Enjoy views from 400 feet up that include Orlando attractions, downtown, and on a clear day, the East Coast and Cape Canaveral. It weighs about 3,000,000 pounds, which is equivalent of over 12 fully loaded space shuttles. It took over 150 forty-foot trailers to ship all of the wheel components. The capsules feature redundant (two) A/C units; color changing LED lights; Bose audio system for music/narration and iPads for interactive 360° viewing. The ICON is lit by over 63,000 LED lights. Each capsule weighs 6,600 pounds, that’s about the same weight as an Indian Elephant or Baby Blue Whale. The glass covering the capsules was crafted in Turkey, and then each capsule was assembled in Hungary. Features: - 400ft high - 30 Unique Air-Conditioned Capsules - 15 Person Capacity Per Capsule - Event space available - Champagne Flights, Private Capsules available - Attraction buy outs available - ADA Compliant

My husband and I got married here in august. What an amazing experience we had from
The moment we set off to the moment we left. We felt like the king and queen of the world. We highly recommend the eye, we have been on a few times and fell in love with it.

I went to the Aquarium And The Orlando Eye for a first date and although the aquarium lacked in density and content, it was entertaining enough for an hour or two, and can be entertaining for kids. The aquarium felt more like an attraction than an actual aquarium with only a few fish. The Orlando Eye was beautiful, and we went at sunset around 7:45 or 8pm. We got our own pod to ourselves, and it was the most gorgeous view of the sky and all of central Florida. I would definitely return just to see the amazing view.

We went at 10 am on Sunday morning and there was almost no-one else there so we got one carriage all to ourselves, which was great. The weather was great so you can see very far - but there is not that much to see really. The screens in the carriage are nice as there you can read facts about what you see.
The price is a bit high, considering the lenght of the ride. It's worth buying a combination ticket for the Starflight carousel and Icon and in advance from the internet. You'll get them cheaper that way.

Just seeing that ferris wheel is jaw dropping it is that big. There is not to much to do here but there are a few shops and restaurants. There is also a wax museum that I would recommend visiting and a small aquarium that we did not visit. This is nice for when you are taking a break from the parks.
