The Orlando Eye and I-Drive 360 are adding to Central Florida’s holiday happenings with special events to celebrate the season. From Dec. 1-25, guests on the Orlando Eye can indulge in some holiday spirit at 400 feet by riding in one of four beautifully themed holiday capsules, ranging from The Night Before Christmas, Gingerbread House, Winter Wonderland and Candy Canes. Holiday capsule packages begin at $30, and include priority boarding and holiday music throughout the flight.
During select times throughout the month, younger guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a flight with Santa Claus himself. Santa flight packages begin at $35, and include priority boarding, photo opportunities, a holiday cookie and a holiday story reading.
Throughout the entire season, look to the skies to see the Orlando Eye lit in different colors to celebrate the holidays. In addition to special lighting for Christmas and the New Year, the Eye will feature blue and white lighting on Dec. 14 to celebrate the last day of Hanukkah.
The courtyard in front of The Orlando Eye also features a 20-feet Christmas tree, purple wreaths, string lighting, as well as an outdoor ice-skating rink and snow machines. Ice-skating rates begin at $10 (with advanced purchase of Orlando Eye admission) or $12 at the door. The cost includes 30 minutes of skate time and skate rentals.
Tickets may be purchased at online or at the attraction’s admissions desk. Prices and event hours subject to change without notice. For more information, visit OfficialOrlandoEye.com.
