Enjoy Ferris wheels and observation wheels in Orlando, including The Orlando Eye at ICON Park (pictured).

Updated May 14, 2021

We love Ferris wheels in Orlando — and we're fond of observation wheels, too! If you love them as much as we do, know that you can enjoy them in style at sky-high attractions throughout the destination. Let's go for a spin in Orlando!

Fun Spot America in Orlando

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® Resort, 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.

The Orlando Eye at ICON Park® 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 Park, including attractions like Madame Tussauds, SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium and Museum of Illusions, plus dining options at Blake Shelton's Ole Red, Uncle Julio's and Sugar Factory, and even some shopping.
