The Wheel It’s actually an observation wheel over a Ferris wheel ,  With a Ferris wheel, it’s a free swing gondola with seats on each side and some canopy, This is a stabilized-driven (capsule) that gives you a really smooth experience on the way around, so it doesn’t feel like when you’re at 400-feet, that you’re swinging around in mid-air.

The structure It’s the weight of a Boeing 737,  each of the 30 gondolas will be attached to the wheel and each gondola will hold 15 passengers comfortably, the gondolas will feature two air conditioning systems  to keep passengers comfortable on a warm Central Florida afternoon.

At 400-feet-tall, the Orlando Eye will provide views of other attractions like Universal, SeaWorld, and Epcot, Fireworks are around the area, as well. It’s a great vantage point for that,  the Orlando Eye will offer different experiences by day and night.

The entire ride experience is expected to take 20 minutes from load to unload. The Orlando Eye will remain continually moving during the loading process. Yet, the forward motion can stop to accommodate passengers who need extra time boarding.

To complement the ride Before entering their gondola, riders will see a 4-D movie spotlighting Florida places.

    Located under the Eye will be another new attraction called Skeletons: Animals Unveiled with 400+ animal and human skeletons posed and composed of REAL bones. Add fun elements like flesh eating beetles, two-headed calf, centaur, and interactive videos. It opens in March before the Eye and Aquarium open. Educational. Entertaining. Engaging!
