The Orlando Eye and I-Drive 360 are adding to Central Florida’s holiday happenings with special events to celebrate the season. From Dec. 1-25, guests on the Orlando Eye can indulge in some holiday spirit at 400 feet by riding in one of four beautifully themed holiday capsules, ranging from The Night Before Christmas, Gingerbread House, Winter Wonderland and Candy Canes. Holiday capsule packages begin at $30, and include priority boarding and holiday music throughout the flight.
During select times throughout the month, younger guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a flight with Santa Claus himself! Santa flight packages begin at $35, and include priority boarding, photo opportunities, a holiday cookie and a holiday story reading.
Throughout the entire season, look to the skies to see the Orlando Eye lit in different colors to celebrate the holidays. In addition to special lighting for Christmas and the New Year, the Eye will feature blue and white lighting on Dec. 14 to celebrate the last day of Hanukkah.
Watch the ride!
The fun doesn’t end after guests take their flight on the Orlando Eye, as I-Drive 360 has completely decked the center’s courtyard with a 20-feet Christmas tree, purple wreaths, string lighting, as well as an outdoor ice-skating rink and snow machines. Ice-skating rates begin at $10 (with advanced purchase of Orlando Eye admission) or $12 at the door. The cost includes 30 minutes of skate time and skate rentals.
Tickets may be purchased at online or at the attraction’s admissions desk. Prices and event hours subject to change without notice. For more information, visit OfficialOrlandoEye.com.
The Orlando Eye
Located in the heart of International Drive, the 400-foot Orlando Eye is the tallest observation wheel on the U.S. eastern coast, offering a new way to experience the breathtaking views of Central Florida.
As a top visitor attraction for the tourism capital of the U.S., the new Orlando Eye, part of the I-Drive 360 entertainment and dining complex, showcases 360-degree views of Central Florida, including nearby theme parks and attractions, downtown Orlando and Kennedy Space Center on Florida’s east coast, all within the comfort of 30 air-conditioned glass capsules. Each capsule has room for up to 15 guests to enjoy a serene 20-minute journey above the scenic landscape.
Included in the Orlando Eye journey is access to the pre-flight 4D cinema experience, taking guests on a full 3D aerial journey of Florida, with the added dimension of sensory experiences, including lighting, wind, spray and scent effects. Visit OfficialOrlandoEye.com for more information.
