The Orlando Eye replica has landed at LEGOLAND© Florida Resort, in the heart of the Florida section of Miniland U.S.A. We’re excited to welcome the crown jewel of the new Orlando I-Drive 360 entertainment and dining complex.
At the center of this awesome model is a 9-foot-tall LEGO© replica of The Orlando Eye, surrounded by Madame Tussauds Orlando and SEA LIFE Aquarium Orlando. All three are part of the ever-growing portfolio of attractions created by Merlin Entertainments, parent company of LEGOLAND Florida Resort.
The display is part of a remodel taking place throughout the entire Florida section of Miniland U.S.A., which recently included making improvements to all the underwater models and pools of water.
The new model was designed and assembled by our Master Model Builders here at the resort. It spans more than 10 feet wide, contains over 60,000 LEGO bricks and took more than 160 hours to build. And like the actual observation wheel, ours spins too!
See how close the model comes to the real thing, which rises 400 feet above Orlando’s world-famous International Drive:
Now the only thing left to do is to see them both in person!
You can visit all three Orlando attractions and LEGOLAND Florida Resort for one low price, or you can enjoy them all year long with the Awesomer Annual Pass. Not only does the Awesomer Pass get you into all of those great attractions, plus Atlanta’s LEGOLAND Discovery Center and LEGOLAND Water Park, it also includes free parking at LEGOLAND Florida Resort and lots of great discounts.
