Its cool, but I dont know how I feel about how much more stuff they're putting up around I-Drive.
I thought this was a Wheel of Fortune thread.
This sounds pretty cool. I was looking at some of the pictures already built and this looks like a great addition to I-Drive.
We recently went on a giant wheel at Niagara Falls, nothing like the size of this one though. 40 people per car, that is friggin huge! It's cool though that will be a great addition to the Orlando skyline and anything new and family oriented can only improve I-drive.
They have a website now for the orlando Great Wheel
any info on this?
I believe it was put on hold due to the economy.
I wonder now with Universal drawing in the tourists to that area if they are thinking of building this again, I hope they do!
I think it is safe to declare this project dead...at least as dead as one can be.
Deader than me, sadly.
Yes, deader is a word.
I always wanted to see this become a reality. I have a huge fear of heights, but I love going into tall places just so I can work away that fear. I love the rush of it, but I never really get to sit and enjoy it all. Now, we do have the sky tower at Sea World, but I haven't been on that for years, haha.
I'm actually surprised that one of the parks doesn't build something like this, like downtown d. It would fit into there new themeing.
It's a shame this was shelved, the views could've been awesome. Where exactly was it going to be built?
Suppossedly near the convention center on International Drive.
*goes to google maps* Ah, interesting could have definitely offered some interesting views. I wonder if this will ever be considered when the economy improves.
The Orlando website is still active. So this project may return one day I really hope it does to it would be awesome!!
From the Orlando Sentinel:
This could be interesting. I've been to both the NYC and London Tussaud's and they are both fun and interesting.
Bank on this one having a Walt Disney figure for sure in it.
So Blackstone is adding 3 new attractions to the I-Drive Corridor. Interesting.
Very interesting. Almost as if they're creating their own little fiefdom, no?
I wish they would have decided to put there attractions near legoland so theres more of a draw to that area.
