Florida Fun

Already a tourist destination for its host of theme parks, Orlando, Florida is set to draw even more visitors with the opening of three new attractions, The Orlando Eye, Madame Tussauds, and the Sea Life Aquarium. The three attractions form the centrepiece of I-Drive 360, a new dining and entertainment destination on International Drive.

Like the world-famous London landmark, The Orlando Eye provides a unique perspective on Orlando from air-conditioned glass capsules that travel up to 400 feet in the air. Whether they choose regular flights, champagne flights or private capsules, visitors will be treated to sweeping vistas over the Orland’s theme parks and attractions, the downtown skyline, the surrounding lakes and bush, and it’s especially clear, NASA enthusiasts will even be able to see down to Cape Canaveral on Florida’s east coast.

Madame Tussauds Orlando brings another famous London attraction to the Floridian city. Visitors can get up close and personal to the brand’s famously detailed and lifelike wax effigies of influential celebrities and historical figures. The Orlando outpost includes models of Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, Big Bang Theory actor Jim Parsons, pop princesses Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, and international icon Ricky Martin.

Taking guests under Florida’s oceans, lakes and Everglades, the Sea Life Orlando hosts interesting displays of colourful fish, sharks, jellies, seahorses, sting rays, sea turtles, and other marine life. Get up close and personal with more than 5,000 sea creatures from the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans, as well as Florida’s freshwater lakes and native Everglades by exploring the winding tunnels, floor to ceiling bubble aquariums, and coldwater rock pools. The aquarium will also host interactive and educational activities for young marine life enthusiasts.
