School Field Trip Information

Brothers and Family on The Orlando Eye with a blue sky

Take learning to new heights with the ultimate 360° learning experience!

Bring your lessons to life in a classroom with a bird's eye view where students can immerse themselves in Orlando like never before! This 20-minute experience gets students thinking about wheels in general and introduces them to the history and construction of the original Ferris Wheel.

Our self-guided tours offer you the flexibility to focus on the topic of your choosing to closely align with your classroom learnings. Touchscreens and fun facts are found throughout The Orlando Eye, providing guidance on finding key landmarks and building on your students' knowledge of the city. As they ride, they’ll learn a little bit about the forces of gravity and inertia that make big wheels work, and with a little prompting will experience the difference in the concepts of mass vs. weight. Finally, they’ll hear statistics about The Orlando Eye as well as the energy and engineering it takes to make it operate.

We provide a selection of resources to use before, after or during your excursion, with options for different stages. All covering different curriculum, including history, math and science. Please see our teacher resources page to download these and get ready for your visit.
