The long-operating observation wheel is now closed after 34 years of operation.

Island in the Sky, the rotating observation wheel attraction at Legoland Florida Resort, is now closed.

According to a statement from Legoland Florida Resort, “Island in the Sky has ended its 34-year run of entertaining millions of guests from around the world, first at Cypress Gardens beginning in 1983 and since 2011 as part of Legoland Florida Resort.”

The attraction towered in the sky during its operation, viewed here from the Legoland Hotel pool.

This attraction’s closing comes with no notice, similar to the closing of Curse of DarKastle at Busch Gardens Williamsburg that was announced earlier this week. Island in the Sky has not operated since 2017.

“While the iconic attraction will always occupy a special place in our history, we look forward to developing new and exciting attractions that will entertain Legoland guests for generations to come,” continued the statement.

There is no word on what will be replacing Island in the Sky as of yet.

  1. I saw it was closed during the Christmas season. The entrance had bushes planted in the ground where the entrance was, so I knew it was not re-opening. The employee I asked said it was damaged during Hurricane Irma, and being such an old attraction they couldn’t get parts for it.
