Winter Garden Moms recently had a chance to experience an Orlando staple…ICON Park. Located in the heart of Orlando’s entertainment district, ICON Park offers so much entertainment value in such an easily navigable space.
From The Wheel, an iconic feature of Orlando’s skyline, to world class attractions such as Madame Tussauds, Sea Life Aquarium and the Museum of Illusions, we loved every minute of our time at ICON Park.
ICON Park Play Pass
We found that there is so much to see and do at ICON Park that it was challenging to do everything we wanted to experience in only one day. This is why we highly recommend purchasing the ICON Park Play Pass. With the Play Pass, we received 1 admission to 8 ICON Park attractions and had 30 days to use them. This really came in handy because we wanted to take our time at each of the attractions.
Note: It is possible to do everything in one day if you start early and plan to stay all day. We just wanted to space things out a bit more.
Attractions Included in the Play Pass:
1 Ride on The Wheel at ICON Park
1 Visit to Madame Tussauds Orlando
1 Visit to Sea Life Orlando Aquarium
1 Ride on the Orlando StarFlyer
1 Ride on the Pearl Express Train
1 Visit to the 7D Motion Theater
$5 Game Card at In the Game
The Play Pass is currently $69 per person, which is much less expensive than buying individual passes to each attraction. It offers discounts on dining and shopping at participating restaurants and shops.
Winter Garden Moms Highlights
Some of our favorite moments at ICON Park were the stunning views from the top of The Wheel.
I’m already planning group trips back to take advantage of this fun attraction. I especially can’t wait to ride at night.
We also really enjoyed Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. There is something for every interest inside Madame Tussauds whether you are into history, sports, celebrities, artists or inventors. Of course, we were happy taking a picture with Walt Disney!
We were also blown away by the Museum of Illusions. This interactive experience allows guests to become part of the illusion and we really love the pictures we took of ourselves falling into a deep tunnel or hanging from the ceiling.
The SeaLife Aquarium was also a big hit, especially with our kiddos. The 360-degree ocean tunnel makes you feel as though you are walking along the ocean floor. We love the interactive sea life animal encounters.
The Pearl Express Train was a favorite attraction among the kids as well, and playing in the arcade with the $5 game card was definitely fun.
Unfortunately, no one in our group was brave enough to ride the Orlando StarFlyer, but it looks SO fun. I know my teens would have loved it had they been there. The 7D Motion Theater attraction would also appeal to my teens since they love shooter style games and they don’t suffer from motion sickness.
Even though not all of our group took advantage of every part of the Play Pass, it was still the most economical way to experience ICON Park for our group. For more information visit www.iconparkorlando.com.
ICON Park provides an escape from the ordinary and we can’t wait to get back!
