I-Drive 360 will feature several attractions, including the little sister of the famous London Eye, a 400-foot-tall cantilevered observation wheel with enclosed glass capsules, the Orlando Eye.

The highly anticipated $200 million I-Drive 360 contains several attractions from Merlin Entertainments Group Plc., the owner of LEGOLAND Florida. These include the Orlando Eye observation wheel, Madame Tussauds Orlando wax museum and Underwater Experience Sea Life Aquarium. The 25,000-square-foot aquarium will feature a 360 degree underwater ocean tunnel along with touch pools, a children’s soft play area and over 5,000 different sea creatures.

The three attractions are expected to open in May. In addition, Merlin's attractions will be surrounded by a dining and entertainment complex being developed by Unicorp National Developments, Inc. Tenants include Yard House, Sugar Factory restaurant, Tin Roof live music bar, Cowgirl's country western shop, Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings, Seafood Republic and Dick's Last Resort.

In 2016, the development will welcome its fourth attraction, the Star Flyer. Once completed, the 420' tall swing ride will be the largest of its kind. I-Drive 360 is located at 8445 International Drive in Orlando, FL.
