What Our Guests Are Saying
Wow! This experience is fantastic! We had hoped to visit this at night, but the electrical storms and winds changed our plans.We went on Monday during the early afternoon. Great view! Worth the money. Tip: if you are staying at a local hotel, ask the concierge for discount tickets. Also, Tip: local residents already get a discount. Plan ahead!I'm horribly afraid of heights and shed a few tears. However, I appreciated the view, the smooth ride, my company in the capsule, and the air-conditioning!In addition, the ICON had a fantastic building for waiting out storms and just taking a break from the weather. Food, a bit of shopping, and tables are available. Besides, parking is free!Bring money for fun photos!We plan to return and visit at night!

Great experience, it is a nice hanger of pace if you are looking for a much more personal experience. You get your own capsule. It moves at a very non scary pace allowing plenty of time to take in the views and sights. I can only imagine this area growing down the line and getting more and more. You can take drinks into the ride and for a nice evening you can really enjoy yourselves. Friendly, fun, clean and entertaining idea.

Very nice and relaxing ride! I was so nervous at first because I am terrified of heights. I hate the traditional ferris wheels at carnivals and I thought this would be eerily similar. I was absolutely wrong. The capsules are air conditioned and filled with bumping tunes, which helps increase the excitement of the ride. In addition to these unique features, the view is phenomenal! I highly recommend this attraction. It is definitely an unforgettable experience!

Nice place to go and have fun while visiting thru International Drive, in Orlando. There's like a food court plus restaurants surrounding the Orlando I. At night especially it's very mesmerizing to just sit and stare, and just relax. When I went to the Icon, we were the last ones to ride it, it was 1145pm and the ride itself is like 25min long. We had so much fun! Definitely will bring parents next time!!

It was really good and cheap. It's location is very good and close to everywhere. We went to Universal studio after here it was close you can see all city it takes 23 min and price is reasonable. You can combine the wheel 🎡 with aquarium or the other opportunities.
23:09 20 Sep 18
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.
15:11 03 Oct 18
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.
04:54 11 Oct 18
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.
03:22 12 Oct 18
I LOVE IT!! The free parking is a plus. The attractions were fun. The museum was awesome. The food was great. There was something for everyone in the family.
22:49 15 Oct 18
I'm not much for heights but this was fun and a none threatening way to see Orlando from the air. The cars are large and are climate controlled, great in Florida heat. Also, it moves very slow so its a nice gentle ride that takes about 25 minutes. We went at night and the city light was very pretty. They have tablets mounted in the cars that you can use to identify some of the sights you will see.
11:16 20 Oct 18
ICON Orlando offers a great view of the whole International drive area of Orlando day or night. I visited the ICON Orlando at night time and it was great. There wasn't a lot of people and I wish I had the opportunity not to be put in the same car as strangers. If it was busy, I could understand however, they had plenty of empty cars. Either way it was still a good experience.
15:58 26 Oct 18
This was a lot of fun. The views around sunset time are amazing. You can also book online like we did. It reminds me of the London Eye a lot. The front desk has a lot of interesting facts. They informed us, this one is larger than the one in London. Amazing
00:56 31 Oct 18
I didn't expect to like it since I was born in pre-Disney Orlando. I was pleasantly surprised by the view since I could see more trees than development! It gave me a new perspective. November is definitely the time to go. The area is nice and clean, no huge crowds or really heavy traffic. 5⭐
21:10 06 Nov 18
I went to the aquarium and the wax museum, will definitely be hitting up the actual Eye next time I'm in the area. It was so much fun!! So much to do and look at, so many restaurants and hotels in the area. Loved every second of it.
03:58 07 Nov 18
Great view of the fireworks at Disney. This is a very comfortable ride. Great way to see the area. Especially at night. And the lights on the wheel are impressive.
03:41 02 Dec 18
I can only speak about The Orlando Eye and its a spectacular experience for all ages. The service is quick and nice, bar is nice, not bad prices. The capsule is very slow for you to enjoy and not be afraid, clean, spacious, lighting is beautiful, and it has informational tablets about different Florida places. I have been here twice one at night and one during the day and I recommend them both. The view was very clear during the day but the lights were awesome during night. A must go.
04:39 12 Dec 18
Great Experience! They were busy on Christmas day. The wait was a bit an hour but well worth it. The nice thing they allow our party to ride in our own car so not share with strangers. That was a awesome. We Roddy at night time. There are other attractions in the plaza that can be experience and a multi experience ticket can be purchased at a discount. Formally know as the Olrando Eye.
03:18 26 Dec 18
A fun attraction for the family. It was a little more busy because of the holiday but definitely worth it. Several venues to choose from at the Icon area. Great views from the Icon. Orlando is very colorful at night in the tourist areas and Disney. Great place and affordable for families.
20:10 31 Dec 18
I was a party of one and I got to ride alone. Perfect! Mellow sing along music was playing. Views were amazing, price was right. Ride was smooth and slow. Operators were kind and pleasant.
23:35 02 Jan 19
The experience or being in the giant wheel is so great and relaxing. I just felt free, the sensation of freedom was just wonderful. There are a lot of things to do like the museum and the aquarium, simulators and for sure, the giant wheel! The view up above is just magical . For those who's aid of heights just be cool, the wheel is slow enough to you too not feel anything and you can just sit on the floor of the cabinet. I recommend all too ride this, because the experience is unique! Three cabinet is equipped with a digital map so you can have information of what are you Spotting at.

There were a lot of cool looking places here I only went to the aquarium but everything else looked like fun as well. It is a great place to take your kid(s) and also some good places to grab drinks or hangout with friends. I recommend visiting here at least once!
23:15 26 Jan 19
Outstanding experience! Riding provides great views of the Orlando area. The cabins move slowly, so those affected by motion sickness won't have a problem. The cabins were very clean, well ventilated and air-conditioned. There was no wait for this attraction. There are other sites to see in the main building. Restrooms were clean and well maintained.
23:35 02 Feb 19
We love the train ride for the kids the cost is 5 per kid and 3 per adult. The mini arcade here is great for these rainy days in Florida and fair on price my kids really enjoy it. And of course the wheel you get it to view Orlando price is 25 per person but it is a beautiful view. Its also a great place to go eat and relax in fake grass area after a long day and breathe in the fresh air.
00:01 11 Feb 19
It is an amazing place, with a diversity of places and attractions. You must try the dragon balls. It is very cozy, familiar and comfortable. The aquarium is beautiful. The wheel is super big. It is the perfect place to spend as a family and the best of all the parking is free and you do not pay to enter, only for what you use.
22:53 25 Feb 19
GREAT place. Lots to do and see. Highly recommended for families. Ripley's believe it or not very close by as well as wonder works. Many eateries as well as night spots. Affordable hotels all around. Short drive to universal studios park. Give it a try.
16:13 04 Mar 19
The Ferris wheel is really cool and it takes you up really really high. I went when it was supposed by Coco Cola, but I don’t think that really makes a difference. It’s one of those things that you should do in Orlando if you’re not going to Disney or universal as it provides a fun opportunity to go to a ride that’s not in a theme park. I recommend this and it gives you a great view of Orlando
04:59 05 Mar 19
Love this place. Is a really nice place to go with your family or your significant other because there is a lot of restaurants an cool places that kids will love. If you visit here, you can not miss the aquarium. Is a really fun experience for kids and adults
05:28 16 Mar 19
Great place to visit lots to do within the building. Aquarium, places to eat and shop! The Icon 360 takes 23 minutes to go all the way around. It’s an amazing way to see the area from above. It’s grass all the way around so if you have a fear of heights I would NOT recommend this. It has a little area to sit with a pol in the middle but most of the glass case is floor to stand. Great way to get pictures of the city! My two year old loved it! Fine for little kids.
12:48 19 Mar 19
I loved it. It's super cool being up so high to see everything around Orlando. If you're looking for an adrenaline rush, this isn't the right ride for you. It's a nice, peaceful, relaxing kind of thing. You should do it at least once
11:56 20 Mar 19
Lots of things to do! A totally different experience on the eye of Orlando! Prices were unbelievable cheap! For almost $55 bucks you get to enjoy the aquarium, wax museum and the ride on the eye of Orlando. I recommend if you don’t have any big plans, which my friend and I did and we have a great time.

Took a ride on the Wheel at Icon Park and had excellent views on the 30-minute Ferris wheel ride. It is best to go on a clear day or partly cloudy day. I recommend for tourists and locals to do at least once! Icon Park is a great locations with tons of things to do. There are a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and fun activities to do within a walking distance.
21:08 07 Apr 19
The area is great. Love going indoors. Good activities for the family. Accesible restaurants with good prices and gluten free options menu. The view from the wheel is gorgeous. You are able to see practically everything!
23:25 22 Apr 19
A wonderful go to date place for locals and tourist alike. So many options around the eye of orlando as well. A breathe taking view that you can actually experience with a great ride experience. If I could give this wonderful tourist attraction more stars I would. The complimentary valet is also a wonderful touch and also a great and welcoming addition to the wheel.
00:53 02 May 19
Definitely a fun experience! We live in Florida but went as a Tourist one evening! Make sure to use your Florida Resident Discount makes it way more affordable! Our son is special needs and they accommodated his every need and made us feel so very welcome! He loved it!! So did we!
