Orlando observation wheel offers new Eye Glow ticket to get the party started

The Orlando Eye has introduced Eye Glow, a new nighttime upgrade of $10 on top of the $20 admission that includes a wine, beer, cider or glass of champagne and access to the new Eye Glow lounge, before boarding the 400-foot observation wheel.

The Eye Glow lounge has bright lights, glow elements and a dance music party atmosphere.

"We wanted to provide a perfect option for our guests to transition from their restaurant dining experience to their night out on the town," said Robin Goodchild, general manager of the Orlando Eye, which is part of the newly opened International Drive and I-Drive 360 entertainment complex that also includes the Sea Life aquarium and a Madame Tussauds Wax Museum.

The Orlando Eye made a dramatic change to the Central Florida skyline this year with the addition of the tallest observation wheel in the eastern United States.

Tickets are $20 ($18 for Florida residents online), $25 for a flexible time and date or $30 for the new Eye Glow ticket available nightly from 6 p.m. until close, which is 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and midnight Friday and Saturday.

See officialorlandoeye.com for ticket packages.
