You probably know it by its previous name, the Orlando Eye. After enduring a regrettable, stand-up “4-D Experience” (a mindless green-screen 3-D film of aerial footage of Orlando—Disney’s noticeably absent—that peppers you with mist), you board 15-passenger pods for your slightly quivering ride on the East Coast’s tallest (400 feet) observation wheel, which is constantly spinning at 1 mph for a 30-minute rotation. You’re too far to see into the Disney parks, but you do see the spires of Hogwarts at Universal Orlando, 2 miles north. It’s pretty enough, but any city would be at that height. Fun ride, odd spot.
