  • Awesome place! If you buy the attraction tickets online, you will get a better deal. They offer several packages that include Lego Land, The Sea Life Aquarium, Madame Tussauds and The Orlando Eye. I recommend this place. It has an awesome view of the Orlando area in a very comfortable and intimate air conditioned pod. If you want some romantic time with your loved one, you will surely fall in love. Also, try to avoid it on rainy or cloudy days. Sunsets are very pretty! We were lucky to be in one of the special cars that have free, cold Coca Cola!
  • We visited at night. Not a bad wait in line, they have a bar as you wait to load the cars. We road with 3 other people and we were lucky enough to be in 1 of 4 "special cars" that offered a Coke bottle cap seat and a cooler of free Classic Coke in a can. I was freaked on the ride up, it's a Height thing for me, mostly just couldn't look down and had to sit down. A city at night is pretty to me; I relaxed as we peaked the top and back down I actually stood up and walked around. $20- overpriced? Perhaps, but mini golf is the better part of a $20, anyway I would like to do it again in the day and perhaps even again at sunset. I recommend it. Take a group of you and have fun!
  • Just came back from an enjoyable vacation in Orlando with a group of my mates. We checked out a lot of the theme parks and attractions offered in Orlando. Then one night we decided to go to this attraction. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER. Our parents only gave us a certain amount of money to spend, and because we're teenagers, they completely gypped all of us! We went on the ride and before it could start the staff took us off the ride and replaced us with another couple and told us to wait more in the line! At this point we were tired and lost our initial interest in the ride. We returned back to where we paid and asked for a refund and they didn't give it to us. The oldest out of my mates asked to speak to a manager, the person dealing with us said "you don't need to speak with a manager! No refunds!". They were very rude with us and we ended up having to throw our tickets in the garbage because we aren't from the US! Big waste of time. Hated every minute of the Orlando Eye.
  • Great experience. When we went there were no lines. You have a 3D pre-show then into your 'pod'. In the pod there was a 'selfie' stick and a cooler of ice cold coca-cola cans. Some lovely views. Recommended.
  • The actual ride was nice - they've had mechanical issues so we were unable to ride in the day we purchased the ticket package. Tickets were good for 30 days so we were able to use before they expired. Great views, interesting perspective.
