Photo Update: I-Drive 360 Construction Continues, Spring Grand Opening Anticipated

Construction of “I-Drive 360”, a new entertainment, dining and shopping complex continues. The Orlando Eye’s outer wheel is now complete and the 30 passenger capsules remain to be installed. Each cabin can hold 15 passengers. Once completed, guests will enjoy the 360-degree views above the hustle and bustle of the Central Florida below. Every cabin will offer guests the comfort of air-conditioning, bench seating, lighting and audio effects for the 20-minute flight experience.

The complex will include attractions, restaurants and retail stores. In addition to “The Orlando Eye” other major attractions will include a 25,000 sq. ft. Sea Life Aquarium, an equally sized Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum and Skeletons: A Museum of Osteology.

Some features of the project are already completed, and others a well underway.

The highly anticipated entertainment destination, located on 20 acres of property between International Drive and Universal Boulevard is scheduled for a Spring 2015 grand opening.
