Fly High on the Orlando StarFlyer
Taller than the neighboring The Wheel by 50 feet, the Orlando StarFlyer is officially the world's tallest swing ride. After boarding one of the double seats, you'll be lifted in a flash to a height of 425 feet to enjoy a 360-degree spin that reaches speeds up to 60 mph. With unobstructed views in every direction, the result is tough to beat ... assuming your eyes can keep up with it!
How Long Do Rides on the Orlando StarFlyer Last?
The ride lasts around 3 minutes, which is just enough time to see the sights and feel the thrill of flying before you're gently brought back down.
Is the Orlando StarFlyer Safe?
To help ensure that the experience is as safe as it is fun, you'll be secured with a seatbelt, lap bar and a between-the-legs harness, but gravity does all the real work to keep you in your seat, making you feel comfortable and surprisingly safe, even spinning several stories up in the air!
How Much Does It Cost to Ride the Orlando StarFlyer?
Riding the StarFlyer will only set you back $12.21, and you can buy a pass for a discounted cost of $10 when you purchase online. Same-day return rides are $7.51.
More Adventures at ICON Park
The Orlando StarFlyer is the latest one-of-a-kind attraction at ICON Park, starting with The Wheel. Standing 400 feet tall, and formerly known as the Orlando Eye and ICON Orlando, it's the largest observation wheel on the United States' east coast, providing views of the theme parks, the surrounding landscape and even downtown Orlando.
On top of being a great place for Orlando selfies, The Wheel is the centerpiece of ICON Park's nightly light show. Private parties aboard the roomy, climate-controlled capsules are also available, as is complimentary WiFi.
ICON Park is also home to Madame Tussauds Orlando and SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium. At Madame Tussauds, walk the red carpet with some of the world's biggest stars, including top names from music, Hollywood, sports and pop culture, as well as historical icons. And thanks to the attraction's newest addition, Justice League: A Call for Heroes, you can rub shoulders with DC Entertainment's Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg, as they appeared in 2017's Justice League motion picture.
Then, head to SEA LIFE to experience Orlando's only 360-degree, underwater tunnel. As you pass through, you'll witness sharks, rays and other aquatic life swimming overhead and to either side, providing close encounters that can't be beat.
Other ways to have fun at ICON Park include hundreds of video and prize games at In the Game ICON Park and a virtual journey through seven dimensions at 7D Dark Ride Adventure. The complex also features Skeletons: Museum of Osteology and Pearl Express Train.
Last but not least, ICON Park has a wide range of shopping, dining and nightlife opportunities. Top places to grab something to eat and drink while you're adventuring include Blake Shelton's Ole Red, Tapa Toro Tapas Bar & Paella Pit, and Yard House.
