ICON Park on International Drive - Things to Do in Orlando, Florida
We love International Drive, in Orlando Florida. With so many types of attractions, restaurants, entertainment offerings, and more, it can be difficult to decide where to start first. We always recommend ICON Park for its diverse offerings, the walkability of the area, and its proximity to Universal Studios, Walt Disney World, and SeaWorld, and the semi-centralized location within the main Orlando tourism and attractions area. In this complex, we get our day started on the flagship attractions that this great spot currently offers. The Wheel, a 400ft tall, giant observation wheel, offers sweeping views of the surrounding area, including Universal, Disney, Downtown Orlando, and more. At the base of the wheel, we explore Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum as well as SEA LIFE Aquarium. We also jump aboard the Orlando StarFlyer for heart-thumping ride up its 450-foot tower. The views are amazing, but Sam’s afraid of heights. Don’t mind his screams.
