The Wheel at ICON Park is a must-do, can’t-miss observation wheel that towers over Orlando at a jaw-dropping 400 feet – or 40 stories – in the air. The Wheel has 30 climate-controlled capsules that can comfortably accommodate up to 15 people.
Each rotation takes about 22 minutes, with plenty of time to soak up Central Florida’s most spectacular views. On a clear day, riders can make out Kennedy Space Center on Florida’s east coast. Sunsets “at altitude” are breathtaking and when the sun sets, riders are surrounded in color and light as nearby theme parks set off amazing fireworks displays.
The Wheel is a rite of passage for visitors and locals, many of whom come back again and again to celebrate special days with us, from birthdays and anniversaries to corporate promotions. It’s become a location-of-choice for marriage proposals; would-be spouses can pop the question on a romantic flight complete with Champagne, truffles and rose petals.
With this COMBO package you also get to ride the Starflyer. Starflyer is the “world’s tallest swing ride" standing at 450 feet. It is a unique attraction that appeals to both young and old, the adventurous and not so adventurous. There is no age limit, just a minimum height of 44” and the 24 Riders are seated in a double seat (12 x 2 seats) next to their friend, family or partner and are secured in their seats with seat belts and an in between the legs harness that can only be unlocked by the ride operator.
Moving up and down and rotating around the giant tower at speeds of up to 60mph take in the amazing views of International Drive and the surrounding areas while your swinging freely or hang on and scream with joy.
At night you’ll see the incredible lighting system, over 240,000 LED lights with creative lighting programs, from miles away that draw you to this world class attraction.
