Florida is a beautiful state. Between pristine beaches, coastal architecture, and the unique local wildlife, there’s sure to be something to catch your eye in Orlando. The Orlando Eye offers a wonderful opportunity for locals and tourists alike to view these sights from a height of 400 feet in a comfortable capsule.

First opened in 2015, the Orlando Eye is one of the world’s biggest Ferris wheels. It features a unique design that utilizes gears and motors to stabilize hanging capsules as it rotates.
