Recently we made a trip down International Drive (AKA I-Drive) to see the progress on some attractions in the area.


IMG_0688 The Trapeze Federation is currently not at its location near the corner of Kirkman and I-Drive. They told us they will be back soon.


IMG_0689 Hash House A Go Go recently opened near Festival Bay. Look for our full review in the upcoming Fall issue of Orlando Attractions Magazine.


IMG_0694 If you didn’t know, Wet ‘n Wild is owned by Universal Orlando. While they’ve owned the park for quite a while, they just recently purchased the land the park sits on. They were leasing it before.


IMG_0695 Lost Caverns recently took over a former Congo River miniature golf location next to Wet ‘n Wild.


IMG_0698 The Wyndham Resort at the corner of Sand Lake and I-Drive has been mostly demolished to make way for a new project.


IMG_0700 The former Wyndham Resort location will become a new shopping center called I-Shops. A new hotel tower is also planned.


IMG_0707 Ripley’s Believe It or Not recently started selling their 2014 annual publication.


IMG_0708 Construction on I-Drive Live is well underway. The structure on the left will eventually become a seven-story parking garage. The complex will feature an observation wheel, Madame Tussauds wax museum, Sea Life aquarium, shops and restaurants. They hope to have it all open by 2015. Click Here for more.
