New I-Drive Live Permits: Sea Life & Tussaud's (Part 2)

Welcome to PART 2 of this new I-Drive Live update, where we examine some permits and notices of commencement to find out new information regarding this much-awaited addition coming to the International Drive area (CLICK HERE to go back to PART 1 of this update). Let's take a look around the terminal building:

There will even be a beautiful skylight:

Some advertising material for the new attractions (NOTE!: There is also a big ad for LEGOLAND Florida, which included the Pirate-themed Splash Battle! This means that the Legends of Chima theme was actually a last-minute change. If this is not a confirmation...):

We will now analyze two of the major attractions that will be the highlights of this area: The Madame Tussaud's wax museum and the Sea Life Center (both owned by the Merlin Entertainment Company).

We will start with the Sea Life Center:

The bare building and its size:

  1. Thank you for all the insider info! Love seeing blueprints of plans like this.

  2. Just so you're aware - the larger 4D cinema will be for the Orlando Eye. Merlin has '4D Preshows' for all its observation attractions. They're pretty good!

  3. Sorry,but Sea Life is a crap,not worth the money.

  4. Sorry, but who wants to go to Sea Life when they can go to SeaWorld down the street??????

  5. In reply to anonymous x2 Sealife is a normally U.K attraction. In the U.K there are now seaworld so these centres are around the country and a great day out

  6. Rumor has it that Unicorp, developing I-Drive Live and I-Shops on the adjacent property, will bring a Planet Hollywood Hotel to Orlando.

    Now this would be a real game changer for I-Drive.

  7. Hey do you mind uploading a full size picture of the terminal building? That usually intrests me and I would love to see a big picture of it please!

  8. This is what Downtown Disney SHOULD be. Step up the game Disney.
