Month: July 2016
This morning, one of I-Drive’s most iconic landmarks received a new name. A little over a year after opening, the Orlando Eye is now rebranded as the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye.
One of the most notable changes is that guests will be selected at random to ride a VIP Coca-Cola capsule complete with selfie sticks, a Coca-Cola themed interior, and ice cold Coca-Cola beverages for their ride in the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye.
The SuperSize Orlando team had a chance to ride in one of these new capsules. The ride was very slow and enjoyable, and the view was absolutely breathtaking – 360 degrees of Central Florida while sipping ice cold Coca-Cola products and listening to upbeat dance music. Katie and Mary were both a little scared about taking the 400-foot flight into the sky, but the slow motion and relaxed atmosphere made them feel extremely comfortable and they were able to enjoy the ride and The View.
Through this partnership with Coca-Cola, a whole new dynamic has definitely been brought to Central Florida and this iconic location. It has truly created a family destination in the heart of International Drive.
