Orlando Eye Construction Update: First Capsule Installed

As we reported a few days ago, the very first Orlando Eye capsule has been installed. These enclosed "rooms" will provide fantastic 360-degree views of the Central Florida area. Just imagine looking at a beautiful Florida sunset from a higher elevation, enjoying one of the many fireworks shows that take place nightly in the area's theme parks, or just get closer to the immense sky above our heads... Let's see how much progress has been done since our last visit:

The Eye is very imposing:

The Tin Roof restaurant was one of the newest locations to open:

And that is all for now, but you can be sure we will be back to I-Drive 360 very soon, as work continues to take place at a very fast pace, as you have seen. Thank you very much for your support!

  1. They should have painted orange ad black then it could have been The Orlando Eye Of The Tiger

  2. Why is the logo the same font and even color as Xbox 360?
    Does that mean it's prone to breaking down and have lots of hidden costs? *rimshot*

  3. 201 days until I'm next in Orlando. Hope it's up and running by then!
