Orlando Eye Transforms Into ICON Orlando

The Orlando Eye is now ICON Orlando, and we have details on this and other upgrades at the renamed ICON Orlando 360 entertainment complex.

One of Orlando’s most recognizable landmarks, the 400-foot-tall observation wheel formerly known as the Orlando Eye has rebranded as ICON Orlando, with the I-Drive 360 complex transforming into ICON Orlando 360.

Here’s a look at these and other changes coming to the International Drive attraction, including the brand-new Orlando StarFlyer, the Justice League at Madame Tussauds and more, making ICON Orlando 360 an exceptional venue for team-building encounters and offsite fun in Orlando.

“The new ICON Orlando name makes perfect sense as we introduce some key changes and position this iconic structure for the future,” says Cindy Campbell-Taylor, vice president of marketing, sales and public affairs at ICON Orlando 360. The attraction’s forecast is very bright indeed, with upgrades that include:

  • Private Parties: This new, adults-only feature includes complimentary beer and wine, plus a private bartender for you and up to nine additional guests aboard an ICON Orlando capsule. You can also upgrade to a second rotation to keep the party going. Naturally, this new experience lends itself well to group outings.
  • Enhanced, Fully Immersive Capsules: As part of the makeover, ICON Orlando capsules will soon include WiFi, making it easier than ever for groups to stay connected. New customization options for personalizing your flights are also being added.
  • Nightly Light Show: Later this year, nights at ICON Orlando will become even livelier with an enhanced, synchronized display incorporating ICON Orlando 360’s courtyard fountains.
