"Icon Park Fun!"
September 2019
The Icon Park is filled with fun activities. The tickets we purchased through Tripster were affordable, but keep in mind you’ll need to show ID of the person who purchased the tickets. At first the attendees weren’t familiar with the company, and asked for ID. Luckily I was able to text my son a picture ID and they accepted it.

"I found our place in orlando"
November 2018
I'm terrified of ferris wheels, guys! But let me tell you...the ICON is the most pleasant, most beautiful experience that happened during my orlando trip! At the very top, not only was the view spectacular, but I got engaged last week on the icon. The ICON will forever be our place now and for that I'm so grateful. Totally recommend.

"Went With a Friend Who Enjoys These Things; She Liked it, but I Was disappointed"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed February 15, 2020 NEW
Paid over $22 for just 20 minutes - I know the area pretty well and was disappointed by the view. Epcot was a tiny spot, and you could just barely see the roller coasters at Universal and the Volcano at Volcano Bay. Otherwise it was just lots of buildings. Maybe at night it might be nice, but I wish we could have seen more of DisneyWorld and other recognizable places.

"Do it once and that's probably it"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed February 09, 2020 NEW
It was nice to do but can't imagine doing it again as there was just not enough to see when up in the wheel. As it wasn't busy we had a wagon (or whatever it's called) just for us which was nice. You can buy drinks and take with you during the ride which is nice too. But that's also pretty much all there is to do. So I would say do it once, accept you are going to pay too much, but you have done it.

Three of us had a car all to ourselves. The wait at 8:15 on a Saturday evening was mere minutes. The interior was very basic. There were lots of twinkling lights, but not a whole lot else at night. The personal photos were fun.

"Boring & Ripped Off!"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed January 25, 2020 NEW
The views were nice, not amazing. We paid for our own cabin, which was more expensive, and when we got through to Baird we were the only people on it, so would have got our own cabin anyway. The people taking the money didn't think to tell us this and save us some cash, just happily took the money. Wouldn't go back, and thought it was a bit of a waste of time tbh! You can't even seen that much in the distance once at the top of the wheel.
