Guests to ICON Park™ can visit SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium, Madame Tussauds Orlando and SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology. Little ones can ride a toddler-sized train while older kids and grown-ups brave the 7D Dark Ride Adventure and Orlando StarFlyer, the world’s tallest swing ride.

Unforgettable Attractions

ICON Park offers a diverse mix of restaurants for lunch, dinner and late-night noshing that satisfy a wild variety of flavors and cuisines. Guests board The Wheel in the Wheelhouse – the center of energy at ICON Park – which features Wheelhouse Market, a new food hall offering authentically prepared, globally inspired foods like andouille sausage, Bavarian pretzels, healthy acai bowls, made-to-order pizza and pasta, Latin-inspired fare, and cupcakes and sweets prepared daily. The market will soon feature a selection of craft beer.

ICON Park’s full-service restaurants include Yard House, Tapa Toro Tapas Bar, Uncle Julio’s Mexican from Scratch, Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Sugar Factory and Buffalo Wild Wings. Quick-casual stops include Shake Shack, iCafe de Paris and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream. Tin Roof serves up food, drink and live entertainment, while iLounge Istanbul is Orlando’s premier cigar and hookah lounge. 

Two new restaurants are set to open by summer 2019: Ox Grille, featuring steaks, pastas and international dishes; and Mikado, a revolving sushi and hot pot concept. In 2020, Blake Shelton’s Nashville-inspired Ole Red restaurant will debut.

ICON Park has a number of small, casual boutiques that sell Tervis tumblers, high-end sunglasses and gift items. And everything is clustered around a lush, central lawn – a family-favorite for kicking back and soaking up ICON Park’s fun, festive atmosphere. The lawn also features entertainment and special events on select weekends throughout the year. 

Parking is free in a multi-level garage, just steps from all the action.

The Wheel

The Wheel

The Wheel at ICON Park is a must-do, can’t-miss observation wheel that towers over Orlando at a jaw-dropping 400 feet – or 40 stories – in the air. The Wheel has 30 climate-controlled capsules that can comfortably accommodate up to 15 people.

Each rotation takes about 22 minutes, with plenty of time to soak up Central Florida’s most spectacular views. On a clear day, riders can make out Kennedy Space Center on Florida’s east coast. Sunsets “at altitude” are breathtaking and when the sun sets, riders are surrounded in color and light as nearby theme parks set off amazing fireworks displays.

Many riders choose to upgrade to a private flight or our premium “Sky Bar” capsule, which features bottomless beer, wine and Champagne. Guests may also select our “Fly and Dine” package that pairs a ride with dinner at one of our participating full-service or quick-casual restaurants.
