Eye Of Orlando

'Eye Of Orlando' Moves Closer To Reality
World's Largest Ferris Wheel To Be Built On International Drive

 

GREAT ORLANDO WHEEL OUT, EYE OF ORLANDO IN.

 

After funding fell through for the Great Orlando Wheel, another investor comes in and has plans for an entertainment center on I-Drive featuring a giant ferris wheel as its anchor attraction. Plans call for a 430 ft tall wheel featuring enclosed, air conditioned cars to make your ride in the sky a comfortable one. The wheel will be part of the I-Drive Live complex that will also include Madame Tussaud's wax museum and Sealife aquarium surrounded by shops and restaurants. The complex will be located on the old Mercado site on International Drive, just north of the convention center. Construction has already begun and things are progressing nicely. 

 

OTHER GIANT WHEELS AROUND THE WORLD

London EyeLondon Eye

Since opening in March 2000 The London Eye has become an iconic landmark and a symbol of modern Britain. The London Eye is the UK’s most popular paid for visitor attraction, visited by over 3.5 million people a year. A breathtaking feat of design and engineering, passengers in the London Eye's capsules can see up to 40 kilometres in all directions.

The London Eye is the vision of David Marks and Julia Barfield, a husband and wife architect team. The wheel design was used as a metaphor of the turning of the century.

British Airways was the main sponsor of the London Eye until February 2008 and up until November 2005 were joint shareholders with Marks Barfield Architects and The Tussauds Group. British Airways also privately funded the London Eye project from the early stages of conception.

 

The London Eye is now operated by the London Eye Company Limited, a Merlin Entertainments Group Company.
