IDrive is short for International Drive and is the main tourist strip in Orlando, Florida.  This 14-mile strip connects all the theme parks, attractions, hotels, restaurants, convention center, and much more. The IDrive strip is becoming its very own destination as well. What was once know as the Orlando Eye, and changed to Coca Cola Eye, is now called The Wheel. The Wheel is located in the newly named entertainment complex called Icon Park. It also hosts the World's Tallest swing called the Starflyer. The success of the Wheel and Starflyer has Icon Park adding more attractions. Icon Park will soon be opening up the World's Largest Sling Shot and World's Largest Drop Tower. Can't wait for this Slingshot on I-Drive? Magical Midways, located one mile north up IDrive, has the current World's Tallest Slingshot. The developers of the original Slingshot at Magical Midway plan to redevelop that area after a new one opens.

The Orlando Drop Tower is set to open in 2020 at Icon Park. Follow us on Instagram @OrlandoDropTower or @IDriveOrlando for updates or sign up for our e-mail newsletter.
