The Coca-Cola Orlando Eye is one of the world’s largest ferris wheel and takes about 23 minutes to complete. It’s a slow and beautiful ride that takes you 400 feet up in the air and rotates 360 degrees. Is inside of a big plaza that contains Madame Tussaud’s wax museum, a 7D dark ride adventure, and the sea life Orlando aquarium. Orlando is also home to a natural history museum which comprises of 500 real skeletons.
You can purchase your tickets just before your ride or online. They offer resident discount which didn’t favor me as a visitor. Lol! They run on a first come first serve basis so reservations are not accepted. I wanted to visit for night time so i can enjoy the Disney fireworks and city lights because you can see them take place at the peak of the ride but I couldn’t make it at night. You also have the option of booking a Champagne Experience. You pay a little more and get a glass of champagne to drink during your ride. I have a thing with heights but I really wanted to go see the city light.
The Ferris wheel turns slowly and offers a spectacular view of Orlando. It is a huge ferris wheel with individual indoor pods that hold about 5 to 10 people. The ride costs $26.63 (Adult 13+)And $21.30 (Child 3-12) You can purchase a package where you can go into three of the attractions for around just $40. Look for deals online. There is no reason to pay full price. I took pictures before stepping into the wheel and the photographer makes you stand in a circle and look up and pose. There is also a 3-D computer inside the pod that helps you determine where everything is when you’re looking out at the landscape or places you can observe from the top.
Is extremely high in the air. I’m so afraid of height ~It is not for people who have a strong aversion to Heights, but I managed though and was quite nervous while up near the top.
When you step out of the pod at the end of the ride they drop you out into a gift shop. You can see pictures you took before going for the ride and for much better deal, just go into the gift shop and get $20 picture frame that allows you to have one of your pictures added to it for free! Instead of buying the picture package and there’s a shop filled with Coca Cola momentum’s! Interesting!
This attraction is not just a Farris wheel it has lots of several shops to spend the evening and restaurants outside of the building. The landscape is so beautiful! There’s a huge parking deck next to the building and parking is free.
An attendant is there for assistance. I got my own capsule and jumped on at the right time. The view from above was breathtaking, you could see the different rides in the amusement park, the hotels, the highway.
Glad i experienced this ride but is ok in my own opinion.
