Orlando Eye first birthday

The Orlando Eye celebrates its first birthday on May 4 with a week of events at I-Drive 360.

I-Drive 360 is spinning in circles this week to celebrate the first birthday of its anchor attraction, the Orlando Eye, on May 4, 2016.

It’s already been a full year since the 400-foot observation wheel opened to great fanfare on May 4, 2015, with grand opening events, a pyro show, and world renowned aerialist Nik Wallenda walking on the structure of the Orlando Eye as it moved. From May 2nd to 8th, 2016, the Orlando Eye is inviting guests to its “first birthday party,” with special gifts in honor of the anniversary randomly presented to guests by the Eye Spy Prize Patrol throughout the week, including complimentary tickets, Orlando Eye merchandise and VIP packages, and gift cards to I-Drive 360 retailers and restaurants.

On Wednesday, May 4, the Orlando Eye will host a day-long first anniversary party featuring:
· A live DJ inside the Orlando Eye terminal
· Special birthday décor inside Orlando Eye’s capsules
· Balloon artists, face painters, entertainers and magicians throughout the area
· Sweet treats provided by Sugar Factory
· Cupcakes by Publix
· A free digital photo download
· Commemorative tickets

Additionally, the Orlando Eye will be lit up in rainbow lighting. For more information on the observation wheel, visit OfficialOrlandoEye.com, and check out these videos we shot last year of the observation wheel in action:
