"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.

Tip: Stable and there is a bar there for drinks.
