ICON Park Destination Days

Inspired by their all-new Great Florida Road Trip experience, that takes visitors on The Wheel through a nostalgic holiday through mid-century Florida - before the era of sprawling theme parks and resorts. This experience is part game, part educational opportunity - and puts the spotlight on Florida’s legacy as an entertainment and tourist destination by highlighting historic locations that have beckoned visitors to the area for decades. To play, each guest is given a camera-like device to photograph destinations and earn ranking with the chance to win a $5 gift card for In The Game arcade after the ride.
With the launch of this exciting new experience, ICON Park has partnered with destinations featured in the game to welcome their residents and celebrate their unique attributes during their Destination Days event, happening every weekend throughout August. Each weekend will focus on a specific destination, celebrating its unique attractions, offering deals for its residents, and sharing why these destinations play an important part of a Florida vacation with Orlando residents and tourists. Some event highlights include: $10 tickets to The Wheel for guests from any zip code within that destination, an educational booth and videos from the destination’s visitor bureau, and raffles to win various prizes ranging from hotel stays, to attraction tickets and more!
If you’re looking for ICONic family fun, this limited-time event makes for a great weekend outing that the whole family will enjoy. Learn more here.

Dinner, drinks, and dancing!

When it comes to nightlife, there is no shortage of options to enjoy a unique night out on I-Drive. But, if you’re looking for a special evening that takes all of your senses on a flight to Old Havana, a night out at Cuba Libre is a must! Every weekend they host Cuba Libre Nights, an ongoing nightlife event where dinner and dancing collide for an unforgettable fiesta!
Fuel up for a night of fun with a delicious meal of authentic classic and Cuban cuisine, and sip on one of the best mojitos in the Orlando area, or a drool-worthy rum cocktail as you're transported to an Old Havana courtyard complete with exotic foliage and vintage dècor. On Friday nights enjoy the sounds of local Latin bands performing live while you enjoy your meal, and stay late on Saturdays to enjoy a DJ Dance Party from 10 pm to 2:30am featuring club hits, salsa, merengue, bachata, and reggaeton!
