It’s time to put on a happy face! With its brilliant blue skies, gently swaying palms, and cheery sunshine, it’s safe to say that Central Florida is one of the happiest places on earth (no shade to Disneyland). We at ICON Park want to share a few things about Orlando’s Hometown Playground that leave us smiling ear-to-ear. Come along as we celebrate our top five reasons to smile at ICON Park.

1.  That View

Orlando is known as the City Beautiful. Once you’ve seen it
from 40 stories up, aboard The Wheel at ICON Park, you’ll
totally get it! Few things make us quite so happy as a flight aboard the tallest
observation wheel on the east coast during an iconic Florida sunset. Believe
us, you haven’t been to Orlando until you’ve seen it like this!  

2. These Cuties

How could working with some of the ocean’s friendliest faces
not make you happy? At SEA LIFE
, a colorful collection of ocean creatures are just waiting to be
discovered by curious minds ready to dive into the deep end. From sea
turtles to jellyfish, to sharks and stingrays, these waters are swimming with
hundreds of reasons to smile.

3. That Rhythm

There’s only one place in Orlando where you can see live
flamenco dancing every night. At Tapa
Toro Spanish Restaurant
, the beats and eats of sunny Spain are plentiful during
vibrant nightly fiestas.  Good food and
great dancing? We’d call that a reason to be happy.

4. That… uh… Everything

Those chiseled features… rippling biceps… intense, heroic gaze… Sorry, got a little carried away there. You see, here at ICON Park, we’ve got some of the best-looking coworkers in town. At Madame Tussauds Orlando, you can get up close and personal with some of Hollywoods hottest A-listers. From Ryan Reynold to Jason Momoa to Selena Gomez to Jason Momoa, there’s plenty to smile (and occasionally swoon) over.

5. Those Smiles

Of the many reasons we have to be happy here at ICON Park, our
favorite is you. More than our attractions, restaurants, and dynamic
entertainment, it’s our guests that make Orlando’s Hometown Playground the
exciting, energetic place this is. Whether you’re local or visiting from out of
town, thank you for bringing us our daily dose of happiness. Without you, we
wouldn’t be here.

On behalf of our iconic family, thanks for giving us so many different reasons to be happy, and thanks for counting down our top five reasons to smile at ICON Park, Orlando’s Hometown Playground.
