A big tourism announcement was delivered on Tuesday concerning the grand opening of three new International drive attractions, including the Orlando Eye.

Merlin Entertainments said The Orlando Eye, Madame Tussaunds Wax Museum and SEA LIFE Aquarium will open to the public on May 4.

The 400-foot Orlando Eye, which can be seen from Interstate 4, has taken months to build and is the tallest structure on South International Drive. It is also the largest wheel on the East Coast.

The last of the 30 total capsules was installed earlier this month. Each one can hold up to 15 passengers.

The new attractions are part of the I-Drive 360 complex.

Orlando Eye tickets are available. They start at $18 and go up to $32.
