Orlando recently welcomed a new group of attractions to the International Drive area: The Orlando Eye, Madame Tussauds, and a SeaLife Aquarium. The opening of these new attractions means that your family want to extend their trip an extra day or two to enjoy all that Orlando has to offer. Your family will not want to miss sunset from the top of the Orlando Eye!!

The largest ferris wheel in the United States now sits here in Orlando! The Orlando Eye is a 400 foot tall observation wheel that gives a 360° view of Central Florida. The breathtaking view gives you a unique look at Downtown Orlando, theme parks, the natural landscape in Orlando and so much more. Each of the 30 capsules is fully enclosed and air conditioned, holding up to 15 passengers. Tickets are available starting at $20, and can be bundled with tickets to SeaLife, Madame Tussauds and/or LegoLand for additional savings.

With the opening of SeaLife Aquarium, Orlando now has its own real aquarium featuring over 5000 creatures ranging from sharks to exotic fish to octopus. Your little ones’ eyes will light up as they go through the 360 degree ocean tunnel and they’ll squeal in delight at the rockpool experience as they touch live starfish and other critters.

Come face to face and pose with your favorite celebrities and historical figures at the newest Madame Tussauds. Your future astronaut can pose with Neil Armstrong, sing their hearts out with Selena Gomez, and bat their eyelashes with Marilyn Monroe, just to name a few of the famous faces you’ll see at Madame Tussauds.

The Orlando Eye attractions make it a one stop day of fun, with The Orlando Eye, Madame Tussauds and SeaLife all in one beautiful complex. Located right on International Drive, it’s only a short 20 minute drive from many of our vacation homes.
