ICON Park is located in the heart of Orlando’s famed International Drive district. The focal point of ICON Park is a giant Ferris wheel called the Orlando Eye. Aboard this Ferris wheel, you’ll enjoy some unique panoramic views of the city as you soar 400 feet into the sky!
Within the same complex as the Orlando Eye is Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum. This wax museum is an excellent place to garner all of those obligatory celebrity selfie photos for social media! Each wax figure looks absolutely life-like with some of the athletes even appearing to have beads of sweat upon their brow. The wax museum also includes numerous historical figures like George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Dr. Martin Luther King. One entire exhibit is dedicated to fictional characters as well such as superheroes and the likes of Shrek!
Across from Madam Tussaud’s you’ll find the SEA LIFE aquarium. This is one of a chain of aquariums which are owned by Merlin Parks (the British theme park company who also owns Legoland), and it is actually one of the most amazing aquariums we have ever visited. The views are absolutely amazing because of the unique designs of domes and tunnels which have made the aquarium experience even more immersive than many other similar attractions.
The foot print of the Ferris wheel is also home to a complex of other buildings which host a variety of shops and stores and a plethora of restaurants. There are also numerous other rides dotted throughout this zone, so be sure to check those out. Some other notable attractions include a museum of optical illusions, an arcade, and more!
Tickets for the Wheel at ICON Park only can be purchased from Groupon.
But our favorite is this deal from Groupon: Go City – Orlando Explorer Pass, which allows you to do this attraction and so much more across the Orlando area including some of the other attractions listed above.
