The Orlando Eye reached another milestone today as the final capsule was raised into place.   Robin Goodchild, the Orlando Eye General Manager, installed the final golden bolt today during a ceremony.

Each capsule will hold up to 15 passengers when the Orlando Eye opens for business at the new I-Drive 360 complex later this spring.

The next phases of construction include the intricate lighting rig that will illuminate The Orlando Eye at night and installing the loading platform that will load guests safely into the capsules.

The I-Drive 360 complex also features Madame Tussauds wax museum and Sea Life Aquarium.
