|Head of Marketing for the Orlando Eye, Todd Andrus.|
One of the larger tenants of I-Drive 360 is Merlin Entertainments Group, which is opening the Orlando Eye observation wheel, a Madame Tussauds and Sea Life Aquarium as well. During IAAPA the company revealed a massive Lego model of the new complex, spanning nine feet across and eight feet tall.
The model, seen above in all its glory, will be placed into Legoland Florida's Miniland U.S.A. - Legoland Florida is another one of Merlin Entertainments' Orlando area properties. It would be natural to expect to see plenty of cross promotion between the two attractions in the future.
The Orlando Eye will stand 400 feet above the ground below, giving unparallelled views of Central Florida. Located in the building below the wheel will be Madame Tussauds Orlando, filled with lifelike wax figures of celebrities from film, television, sports, history and pop culture. The Sea Life Aquarium will feature immersive underwater experiences with fish, rays, sharks and more using floor to ceiling displays, bubble tanks, touch pools and a 360 degree underway tunnel.
