To help better promote their offerings during the pandemic, several I-Drive businesses have banded together to form the Orlando Entertainment District.
Spearheading the effort, ICON Park’s president and CEO Chris Jaskiewicz said in a press release: “Locals have rediscovered the entertainment value of I-Drive and how easy it is to get here, and they’re loving it. About 75% of our guests now are locals, so we want to make sure all our residents know what is available to them here in their own town and state, especially as their out-of-state travel is limited by the pandemic.”
The Orlando Entertainment District is comprised of the following attractions and restaurants:
- This is a 20-acre open-air dining, shopping, and attraction destination in heart of I-Drive which is home to attractions The Wheel, Madame Tussauds, SEA LIFE Aquarium, Pearl Express children’s train, Arcade City, and 7D Darkride Adventure, along with restaurants and bars including Yard House, Tin Roof, Uncle Julio’s, Ole Red, Tapa Toro, Sugar Factory, Buffalo Wild Wings and Shake Shack.
