Here’s a list of some of the new additions to I-Drive
Hulk Hogan knows best… so he knew to open
his beach shop in the heart of International Drive Orlando! Hogan’s Beach Shop

Jimmy Fallon Ride:
In spring 2017, we welcomed Jimmy Fallon and The
Tonight Show to I-Drive. Not only is this ride an incredible walk through
television history that can keep you entertained for hours, it was offered an
alternative to the tradition queue. Attendees make a reservation on Universal’s
app, come back when their color has been called, and enjoy a “green room”
with live performances including the Ragtime Gals barbershop quartet and
Hashtag the Panda before boarding the ride.
Over the summer, a new Mexican joint
joined I-Drive 360, Home of the Orlando Eye
’s lineup. With recipes made from scratch, and a chocolate piñata, Uncle
Julio’s quickly became a popular I-Drive restaurant!
We said goodbye to Universal’s Wet N Wild and said
hello to Volcano Bay! This gorgeous water park will make you feel like you’ve
been transported to a private island of adventure and fun. From high-speed aqua
coasters, to trapdoor water slides, and leisurely rivers to float down, this
water park is quickly becoming the “it” aqua-attraction of Orlando!
’s Karen coaster unveiled a virtual reality upgrade earlier this year
that takes guests into the depths of the ocean – and into a confrontation with
the Kraken. As virtual reality is one of the newest forms of technology hitting
theme parks, we cannot wait to see what other incredible trips we’ll take in
our theme parks as the years continue!
Racing legend Mario Andretti brought a bit of speed to
I-Drive this year, with the opening of our newest karting and family
entertainment center. Guests can enjoy high
speed electric super karts on a multi-level track, a state of the art arcade,
ropes courses, professional VR racing simulators, laser tag, bowling, and much
A premier entertainment and event
venue, Topgolf was a welcomed addition to Orlando! With fun point-scoring golf
games for all skill levels, an upscale bar, music, and much more, tourists and
locals alike can be found in this watering hole-in-one!
