The Orlando Eye completes wheel construction-Employee search begins!


The circle is now complete. Construction on the all new Orlando Eye has reached a huge milestone, and is just about ready to move on to the next huge step. Actually, the Orlando Eye is moving on to several huge steps, all in the preparation for the Spring 2015 opening. The 400 foot tall wheel is on track to open, as the centerpiece of the all new I-Drive 360 complex located in the heart of Orlando. The new attraction is just one of three major attractions opening in 2015, that will be owned and operated by Merlin.



The Orlando Eye has completed construction of the outer wheel, giving the structure the full 400 foot tall height. The next step is to install the state of the art capsules that will be taking guests all the way to the top for a birds eye view of Orlando and the surrounding areas.

In addition, The Orlando Eye has also launched a huge new website, The Official Orlando Eye (click here). 

As of right now, there isn’t much happening on the site, but there are plenty of employment opportunities. If you’re looking for a job, the Eye as well as Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and Sea Life Aquarium have tons of positions available, and all listed on the official website.

The Orlando Eye is just one of the many new attractions coming to I-Drive 360 in 2015. The new entertainment and dining venue is already home to several new restaurants, and will also welcome several attractions, including The Orlando Eye, Madame Tussauds, and Sea Life Aquarium. There will be over a dozen new restaurants as well, with many coming to the Orlando area for the first time.
