ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) — Three new tourist attractions are getting ready to open this May in Orlando including the 400-foot observation wheel known as the Orlando Eye.

Merlin Entertainment on Tuesday announced that the Orlando Eye, along with two other attractions, will open to the public on May 4.

However, visitors who sign up for the attraction’s newsletter get the chance to ride the wheel a few days before that.

The Orlando Eye has 30 air-conditioned capsules that will provide panoramic views of central Florida.

Two other attractions, Madame Tussauds Orlando wax museum and an aquarium, also open at the same time.

Prices start at $25 for adults for admission to one attraction.
