If you think Orlando is impressive at ground level, see it from above with an unforgettable ride on The Wheel. Once known as ICON Orlando 360, this 20-acre walkable sprawl of entertainment at every turn is now known as ICON Park™, further improving its impressive ability to give guests plenty of places to eat, drink, and have a fantastic time no matter what they’re into.
Make time during your Orlando vacation to visit ICON Park™ which truly has something for everybody!
The Wheel is the first thing you’ll notice when you head to ICON Park™ as it towers above Orlando 40 stories high. Outfitted with 30 air-conditioned capsules built for up to 15 people, it is the ultimate way to enjoy the city, day or night. Special packages are available too for those who want to splurge with a private Sky Bar capsule featuring bottomless, beer, wine, and champagne.
If wheels turning in the sky make you a little squeamish, perhaps sticking to one of the on-site museums will be more your speed. Madam Tussauds Orlando has Justice League heroes, Taylor Swift, Muhammad Ali, and many more famous people in wax form. If you’d prefer something more educational, Skeletons: Museum of Osteology is the newest science museum and Orlando’s only natural history museum that gives you the chance to get down to bare bones with over 40 incredible exhibits that will delight guests of all ages!
While The Wheel is impressive if you want thrills and spills, head to the 7D Dark Ride Adventure. Yes, that’s 7 dimensions to delight you in wild video game ride format! For the biggest thrills, try the Orlando Star Flyer, the tallest ride of its kind anywhere!
SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium is the perfect place to beat the Florida heat. Learn about the world under the waves with a 360-degree ocean tunnel, come face-to-face with ocean predators, and get a chance to pet tame sea life like starfish and anemones.
Don’t forget to collect memories of your ride on The Wheel at BEYOND ICONic with plushies and souvenirs, or head to Flip Flop Shops to dress like a real Floridian. With gift stores, kiosks, candy shops, and other ways to shop, ICON Park™ will give you plenty of ways to take your trip home with you.
Of course, all this activity is bound to make you hungry. You’ll be spoiled for choice with an incredible array of food stalls with everything from churros to popcorn to satiate your snack appetite, plus casual dining that’s kid-friendly and full-dining experiences. Try Shake Shack, 1905 Pizza & Pasta, or Latin 21 Street Food for a great casual bite, or take your time at Carrabba’s, Outback Steakhouse, or Yard House where you can grab drinks too. Don’t forget to stop by Great American Cookies or Ben & Jerry’s to treat yourself to something sweet!
With acres of food and fun to keep you busy both in and out of the sun, add ICON Park™ to your Orlando vacation itinerary!
