The 400′ Orlando Eye stands proudly, it’s 30 passenger capsules, each holding up to 15 passengers slowly rotating day and night. Passengers enjoy a 360-degree view of Central Florida below. Every cabin offers guests the comfort of air-conditioning, bench seating, lighting and audio effects for the 20-minute flight experience.
