    The Orlando Eye


Time Out says

There’s no finer way to get your initial bearings of the city than from Florida’s newest icon, the Orlando Eye. Opened in April 2015, the 400-foot Eye is the tallest observation wheel on the east coast, with its 30 air-conditioned capsules showcasing mind-blowing views over Orlando and a large slice of central Florida beyond. Time your ride for just before sunset, then grab celebratory drinks and dinner at I-Drive 360 (8445 International Dr), the $250 million entertainment complex at the foot of the wheel that includes Madame Tussauds, Shake Shack and must-see live music venue Tin Roof.
