Thrills Coming to International Drive

Posted by Kelli Hudson on Dec 18, 2014 12:05:09 PM


An exciting project, expected to be finished in 2016, offers guests thrills on International Drive.  Currently, the Orlando Eye can be seen, a ferris wheel close to being finished.  The ferris wheel is much like the London Eye, allowing guests to see the scenic view of International Drive and Orlando.  At 400 feet, it is the fifth largest ferris wheel in the world.

An exciting new rollercoaster will be built next to the Orlando Eye, the world's tallest rollercoaster, at 535 feet.  Although it has not started with construction, a video can be seen with a tentative idea of what the coaster will look like.  I may be bias, but it looks pretty remarkable and definitely fun-filled.

In the same location, will be the Vue 360, a swing ride at 420 feet in the air.  It is much like the ones found at theme parks, but with a thrilling twist.

These attractions will offer a theme park experience without having to be in a theme park.  There is already countless things to do on International Drive, and now thrill seekers can enjoy the benefits it has to offer.
