The Orlando Eye towers above the Orlando Skyline, giving riders a look at the amazing views in and around Orlando. This Independence Day weekend, however, the best show will be on the ground as the Orlando Eye celebrates its’ first Fourth of July with a flurry of color and light. It’s all part of a huge celebration, and it’s all free!
From July 3rd until the 5th, The Orlando Eye will be hosting a slew of events include live entertainment and family-friendly activities throughout the weekend, culminating with a 20-minute patriotic lighting show on the 400-foot observation wheel, where more than 64,000 LEDs will be illuminated in red, white and blue starting at 9 p.m. each night.
Plus, throughout it all, The Orlando Eye, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, and Sea Life Aquarium will all be open as well.
Plus, guests can check out tins of new dining options, including Tin Roof Orlando, Yard House, and the all new Paramount Fine Foods. There’s also the huge new Arcade City for those who want to spend the night gaming.
