Let's take a look around together to see what has changed since our last visit:
New stores and dining locations now open:
A new Shake Shack will open across the street later this year:
Other future additions:
We will soon post an official review of the Skeletons - Animals Unveiled! attraction:
Heading to The Orlando Eye's terminal:
Some work is being done near the entrance:
The models of The Orlando Eye, the Madame Tussauds museum, and the SEA LIFE Aquarium were recently moved here from LEGOLAND Florida. They might be moved back to the park in the near future:
Jackie Chan welcomes Guests just outside Madame Tussauds:
The queue for The Orlando Eye:
Multiple information pitons can be found nearby:
The food court:
The SEA LIFE Aquarium:
The new Arcade City is now open:
Guests can get one free game at multiple machines when spending at least $20.00:
The redemption area:
The "Hall of Fame" include photos of Guests that recently claimed a prize at the location:
There's even a soda machine inside the arcade. Unlimited refills are available for about $5.00:
Ben & Jerry's has been open since day one, and that Miniature Eye/Terminal building has been there since week one as well
Why is arcade city open. Would it run into the law or is a loop hole style arcade.
Yes, can anyone explain why they have a redemption arcade but Disney had to close theirs?
Disney didn't necessarily HAVE to close them. In the wake of legislation in 2013, Dave & Buster's and Chuck E. Cheese's faced lawsuits that "violated the written law" by internet cafe's. Disney most likely closed them ahead of this to avoid lawsuits.
In 2015 the bill authorizes amusement park machines to be operated by swipe cards, coins, or tokens. It also updated the redemption value of points for a single game to $5.25 instead of $0.75. Claw-machine prices increased the redemption value to $52.50.
Even though they could operate machines in their park, Disney has not announced the official reason for removing them in their park. But this is a good idea of why the arcade can continue operating like Dave & Buster's.
