Photo Update: A Ride On The Orlando Eye

While construction of some of the other parcels are still underway, “I-Drive 360” a new entertainment, dining and shopping complex is now open.

The 400′ Orlando Eye stands proudly, it’s 30 passenger capsules, each holding up to 15 passengers slowly rotating day and night. Passengers enjoy a 360-degree view of Central Florida below. Every cabin offers guests the comfort of air-conditioning, bench seating, lighting and audio effects for the 20-minute flight experience.

We took a ride on the wheel this week. Here’s our photo update. Click photos for a larger view:
