The Wheel at Icon Park, Orlando FL

Description

The Wheel at Icon Park is a huge ferris wheel, 400 feet tall! It takes you slowly round one time, and your view changes as you get higher and higher. It's really exciting to be in this glass room with your friends or family, watching the interesting sights of Orlando. You can see the StarFlyer wave swings going up ridiculously high in the sky, a helicopter that makes rounds of the area, glistening lakes, Seaworld, Universal, Volcano Bay and more! Romantic pop songs play on an excellent stereo, and two AC units per room make sure you stay fairly cool. You are in your own chamber which is like a room with floor to ceiling windows. This attraction was more fun than I expected.
After, walk around Icon Park, a beautiful area with other attractions and restaurants, and share a chocolate shake at Shake Shack.
Museums here are Sea Life Orlando Aquarium, Skeletons: Museum of Osteology, a fascinating museum, and Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum.
