The announcement this week that Skyplex has been approved to continue development is exciting news. International Drive in Orlando continues to grow and evolve as a top destination for vacationing families and groups that frequent Central Florida. New thrills are forever changing this landscape and pushing the limits.
The sky is clearly the limit when imaging how Skyplex will be received when the attraction surfaces in 2018. Skyplex is to feature several must- do attractions all in one huge entertainment complex. Records will be crushed with the World’s tallest roller coaster, Skyscraper, a complete vertical coaster at over 500 feet tall. Skyfall is yet another thrill that will drop riders around 460 feet at a speed approaching 90 mph!
More attractions hosted by Skyplex will be the Skyfly zip line and a surfing park called Skysurf. Surrounded by a lush, casual tropical atmosphere, Skysurf will be located 10 stories up from the ground and will feature man-made waves for every skill level. Live entertainment, retail stores, and the World’s largest Perkins Family Restaurant will also be developed as part of this SkyPlaza within Skyplex. An observation deck will allow views from over 530 feet above International Drive.

Skyplex greatly adds to the excitement that International Drive is well-known for. I-Drive 360, which hosts the Orlando Eye observation wheel, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, and the Sea Life Aquarium just opened early this year, 2015. This attraction also presents entertaining night life, premium shopping experiences, and great restaurants. More impressive attractions are being planned for International Drive and will open every year.
