The landmark Coca-Cola Orlando Eye will be closed starting today, January 30, for regular maintenance on the attraction.
Though most regular planned maintenance and engineering work takes place overnight after they have closed to the public each night, this annual closing allows them to perform larger projects to make sure the attraction is operating at peak efficiency and safety.
Pop music artist Austin Mahone has been immortalized in wax for Madame Tussauds Orlando at I-Drive 360.
The singer-songwriter met with Madame Tussauds artists earlier this year, where they took more than 300 measurements of his head and body to create his figure. Mahone worked closely with artists to finalize the figure’s pose that best reflected his look. The figure is even wearing a replica of the silver bracelet Mahone’s mother made him.
If you’ve always wanted a photo with the Beatles, then you’ll want to get to Madame Tussauds Orlando.
Starting July 30, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison will be in residence…or at least their wax figures will be. The figures of the Fab Four are set in a pose that pays tribute to the 1969 Abbey Road album cover, which captured all four members walking on a zebra crossing outside of Abbey Road Studios.
On a worldwide tour of Madame Tussauds, One Direction has finally arrived at the Orlando location.
Or at least their wax figures have.
All five members of the original One Direction line-up are here, including Niall, Harry, Liam, Louis and even Zayn, and guests at Madame Tussauds Orlando can take all the selfies they want with the group.
Music, film and television star Ross Lynch was in town on Thursday, May 21, to unveil his new wax figure at Madame Tussauds Orlando at I-Drive 360.
Lynch made his acting debut on the Disney Channel’s Austin & Ally, and plays Brady in the network’s Teen Beach Movie and it’s upcoming sequel. If that’s not enough, he’s a member of pop rock band R5, which includes three of his siblings.
Everybody likes hanging out with celebrities and snapping selfies, and at the newly opened Madame Tussauds Orlando, it’s almost like the real thing.
Madame Tussauds features detailed and lifelike wax figures of major celebrities, sports stars, musicians, historical figures, and more. But these figures aren’t trapped behind glass, they’re out in the open for you to get up-close with for all the photos you want.
To mark his one year anniversary as host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon joined Madame Tussauds at their New York attraction for a special launch of five brand new, never-before-seen wax figures of the popular funnyman.
One of those five will be making their way down to the Sunshine State, to reside in Madame Tussauds new Orlando location at I-Drive 360.
Yesterday, during a press conference, Merlin Entertainment released opening date information for the cornerstones of its I-Drive 360 complex: The Orlando Eye, Sea Life Orlando Aquarium, and Madame Tussauds Orlando.
The grand opening date for all three will be Monday, May 4, 2015, less than three months from today. Tickets are already on sale starting on that date.
Earlier this month, the final capsule for The Orlando Eye was put into place, but a spokesperson said they must undergo more testing to make sure everything is in working order. Then the staff must be trained so guest interaction on and off the ride goes smoothly.
The wheel revolves at heights up to 400-feet tall along International Drive, and the 6,600-pound capsules can fit up to 15 people. The wheel spins slowly, taking up to 45 minutes for a full circle.
