Sky-High in Orlando: Go for a Spin!

See Orlando in a whole new way at Ferris wheels and other sky-high attractions throughout the destination.

Get ready to celebrate National Ferris Wheel Day with sky-high attractions in Orlando.

We love Ferris wheels in Orlando, which is why we think it's fitting that National Ferris Wheel Day shares Feb. 14 with Valentine's Day. If you love them as much as we do, come celebrate the holiday in style at sky-high attractions throughout the destination!

Family-owned, Fun Spot America has two locations throughout the destination. What's more, it could be said that the Orlando edition on International Drive has two Ferris wheels. The first is Revolver, a traditional take that provides views as far away as downtown Orlando.

The second option, Enterprise, is not for the faint-hearted. It looks like a standard Ferris wheel, but the gondolas stick out instead of hanging down, and it moves fast. After boarding, you'll spin and lift upward at a 90-degree angle, with centrifugal force keeping you in place instead of seatbelts, straps or restraints.

Located less than 15 minutes from Walt Disney World, Fun Spot America's Kissimmee location features a one-of-a-kind Ferris wheel. This Fun Spot location is adjacent to Old Town, an entertainment venue offering family-friendly attractions, dining, shopping and events for all ages.

Imported from Italy, the Ferris wheel features 18 gondolas that can carry up to six people to a height of 85 feet, providing a gorgeous view of Kissimmee and Orlando. And at night, it lights up with more than 6,000 LEDs for a completely different kind of view.

ICON Orlando at ICON Orlando 360 is actually an observation wheel, and the tallest one on the United States' East Coast at that. Once you board one of its roomy, air-conditioned, high-tech capsules, you'll experience breathtaking views of Orlando's downtown and tourism district from a height of 400 feet.

Afterward, you'll find a lot more to enjoy at ICON Orlando 360, including attractions like Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and Sea Life Aquarium, dining options at Tapa Toro, Uncle Julio's and Sugar Factory, and even some shopping.
