Explore Unique Attractions in Orlando
When it comes to Orlando attractions, the fun starts on International Drive, aka I-Drive, which is close to Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Orlando in the heart of Orlando’s tourism district. Here, you can enjoy rarefied views of Orlando from aboard The Wheel at ICON Park — a 400-foot-tall observation wheel. ICON Park also invites you to go even higher and much faster on Orlando StarFlyer, or explore wonders and marvels at Madame Tussauds Orlando and SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium, and Museum of Illusions, among other reasons to visit.
That’s just the start of everything I-Drive has to offer, as the action-packed district features imaginative spins on all manner of classic attractions — and some you’ve never even dreamed of. Enjoy amusement park rides at Fun Spot America. Exceed your need for speed Andretti Indoor Karting & Games. And explore wonders and oddities from around the globe at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! and WonderWorks, the latter of which is part of Pointe Orlando.
