The Orlando Eye - Orlando, FL


This year a new attraction hit the scene in Orlando and of course I wanted to try it out for the blog.  The nice part about this attraction is that there are many things to do in the area, free parking, and you have many choices in things to do.  The building that houses the Eye also has a Sea Life Aquarium and Madam Tussaud's Wax Museum. You can buy any of these experiences individually or save as you combine them. Then outside the area there are many restaurants/museums/arcades/ to explore and then there is even more surrounding the landing.

The Eye is a 400 foot observation wheel.  It has roughly 30 capsules that rotate on the wheel.  It takes about 20 minutes for the wheel to complete a rotation.  There is seating in the middle of the capsule for those that are not as into the heights as others.  From the middle of the capsule you are able to see out but unless you walk directly up on the glass you cannot really see down.
