ICON Orlando 360 Update: World's Tallest Starflyer Officially Opens to Guests

ICON Orlando 360 continues to expand by adding thrilling, new offerings that definitely catch the eye of Guests driving by the area. One of the most iconic additions is the world's tallest Starflyer, which is now operating in the nearby Vue at 360 (which is also part of ICON Orlando 360). Let's take a quick look around the area to see what has changed since our last visit.

    1. I believe that Coke backed out and the Eye has more became an "Icon" for Orlando and International Drive [see what they did there]
