The Wheel at ICON Park Reopens

Percentage of proceeds from tickets will be donated to Florida hurricane relief efforts

WHEN: October 1, 2022

WHERE: ICON Park | 8375 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819

WHAT: The Wheel at ICON Park, Orlando’s welcome to the world, has reopened after Hurricane Ian. Throughout the weekend, a percentage of proceeds from tickets will be donated to Florida hurricane relief efforts.

As the tallest observation wheel on the East Coast, The Wheel at ICON Park is built to withstand severe weather events. Per company protocol, the entertainment destination closes The Wheel prior to the forecasted arrival of tropical storm winds reaching Orlando. The Wheel is locked in and then anchored down from the outer rim beam with two cables anchored north and two cables anchored south. Prior to reopening, The Wheel undergoes an extensive inspection process by the entertainment destination’s technical team.

ICON Park knows there are many tourists that have been trapped in an I-Drive hotel room for days and others who are simply displaced, so it’s offering free tickets to the Carousel on The Promenade throughout the weekend as a way to make up for the time they have lost.

The entertainment destination has weathered many hurricanes since its opening in 2015 and continues to remain strong for the community.
