"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.

Ample parking which is free, very rare these days. We went on the wheel and visited both Sea Life and Madame Tussaud's on a combo ticket which was great fun. If you are sick of the theme parks and want to do something a little different then give it a try.

It is a nice slow 22 minute ride. We did it at sunset and it seem to be at the same height that we were it. The sky turn gorgeous so picture taking was fantastic. It is all glass so the panoramic view is great.

I love it! I recently went on the icon again and really did love it. The views are super cool and you’re in your own little space bubble. I can’t wait to go back at night and time it just right for fireworks! We are local and could see our apartment and other cool land marks. We definitely recommend for all locals! We loved it so much we upgraded to the yearly pass after we got off.

"Wosrt experience at icon wheel due to weather"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

Do not buy your tickets here with a combo deal of your trying to go to the sea life and madam Tussaud's. They don't tell you that if they close due to weather or possible thunder that you don't get the 2 attraction for $40 deal or the 3 attraction for $50 deal. If you can't get on the wheel at all they will make you spend money to pay full price tickets at the museum or sea life in order to get a refund at Icon wheel, which then they screw you over by charging you full price for the other two attractions. And essentially you end up paying full-proce instead of the discounted combo pricing. That's how they made us wait an hour and a half to see if the wheel would reopen then only to tell us it will not reopen and we would have to pay full price for Madame Tussaud in order to get a $10 refund not the half for $20 we were expecting since we only got to go to one of the two attractions they sold to us. Horrible management and bad customer service. Don't waste your money here. Just buy your tickets direct at madam tussauds or sea life.
