ICON Park Hosts Oktoberfest 2022

ICON Park Oktoberfest 2022

ICON Park is hosting their first Oktoberfest celebration, and you’ll want to bring your favorite stein and best lederhosen!

Aligning itself with the famous Oktoberfest festival held each year in Munich, Germany, ICON Park will offer special beer, food, and entertainment on Fridays from 5 to 10 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 2 to 10 p.m. starting September 16 through October 2.

This celebration will be the perfect opportunity for families to spend time together while enjoying traditional experiences.

Throughout the celebration, guests can get their fill of delicious German beers. Beer flights featuring four seasonal brews will be available at The Lawn Bar for $16. If you’re looking for a nice souvenir, a commemorative 32 oz glass stein filled to the brim with your favorite selection can be purchased for $22.

Guests can even take a flight on their flight of The Wheel! A seasonal selection cooler will be offered at the Sky Bar before boarding.

The brews will pair perfectly with the traditional German dishes ICON Park is offering at The Lawn. Choose from Bratwurst and Sauerkraut, Chicken Schnitzel, Pretzels with Beer Cheese and, of course, Apple Strudel.

For the purists, ICON Park will have the authentic Bavarian Music of Stammtischler – from the Oom Pah sound of polka and waltzes to traditional landlers and boarischers. Kids will love watching the performers play the Bavarian button accordion with the tenor horn, wooden spoons, and the Alphorn. Whether you’re dancing the night away or just enjoying the sound of real alpine music, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Munich.

ICON Park is at the center of the new Orlando Entertainment District. Conveniently located near I-4, Florida’s Turnpike, and the Beachline, this premiere entertainment destination is easy to access and offers free parking for any Central Florida resident or Orlando tourist.

Treat the educator in your life to a fun trip to the Museum of Illusions Orlando this Teach Appreciation Week from May 2 to 6. 

With everything teachers do for our community, the Museum of Illusions Orlando wants to celebrate teachers and give back with our Florida Teacher Complimentary Ticket Program, which is available to all active Florida teachers and professors. They can receive a complimentary ticket to the museum and 10 percent off in the gift shop. 

The best part of this deal? It’s available 365 days a year. Teachers can enjoy free admission all year long because teachers deserve more than just one week of appreciation. Eligible teachers can register for their complimentary Florida Teacher Card .

This deal allows teachers to receive up to four complimentary visits per year. The Florida Teacher Card can take up to 2-3 business days to process and tickets must be booked online only with their unique code.

The Museum specializes in “edutainment,” where education and fun intersect. Its collection of optical illusions is based on math, science, and psychology — making it the perfect place for teachers to explore on their own time or bring their class for a unique and interactive field trip.  

“Teachers are a vital part of the Central Florida community that Museum of Illusions Orlando calls home,” said Marc Gregory Tipton, sales and marketing manager. “We’re excited to be able to give back to them all year long and we hope to see teachers stunned by our illusions this Teacher Appreciation Week!”

ICON Park completes renovations

ICON Park on International drive has been buzzing with renovation projects and the opening of 12 new tenants in the past 12 months such as Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips and Blake Shelton’s Ole Red.  

The Wheelhouse, the center of energy at ICON Park where guests board The Wheel and experience more attractions, great food and drinks, games, and fun, is completely remodeled. This started with tearing down the building’s front walls to create a brand-new grand entrance that includes retractable glass panels.

The new design provides the perfect synergy between ICON Park’s open-air spaces and the complex’s central building. The minute guests walk through the large doors, their adventure begins.

ICON Park
The Wheelhouse Bar

A key component of The Wheelhouse remodel was the addition of a circular bar in the center of the building. It was designed using custom-colored, hand-made encaustic cement tiles to give the bar surface a fun, Florida feel, all while complementing the ICON Park colors surrounding it. The shape of the round bar honors the design of The Wheel – a hint of what is to come. It features blush-colored glass pendants that are handblown, suggesting sea glass, and a brightly speckled terrazzo countertop adds a touch of retro glam. This mix of texture, color, and shape, makes The Wheelhouse Bar the perfect spot for a quick drink or leisurely hang out with friends.

As guests walk to the back lot of The Wheelhouse to ride The Wheel, they’ll discover the new Sky Bar. It’s a casual spot to pick up a quick drink before boarding your capsule. The bar is covered in ocean blue scallop-shaped cement tiles and accompanied by a brightly speckled terrazzo countertop. The back bar wall, painted in Flamingo Pink, is decorated with a selection of curated poster-sized vintage travel postcards, a nostalgic wink to Florida tourism over the years.

ICON Park
The Sky Bar

“When designing these bars, I wanted to create two spaces that represent the exciting, fun experience ICON Park offers its visitors and, at the same time, design them as an homage to Florida,” said designer Petra Hausberger, principal of Somerton Park Interiors.

ICON Park
Entrance to the Wheel

As part of The Wheelhouse remodel, ICON Park has also added new attractions such as In The Game ICON Park and 7D Motion Theater, a gift shop, a retail store, and new flooring inside The Wheelhouse.

To optimize all 20 acres of ICON Park’s open-air and walkable spaces, the entertainment complex has expanded the ICON Park Promenade. Thirty new kiosks have been added so guests can enjoy a unique outdoor shopping experience as they stroll along the brick promenade under festoon lights.

ICON Park
The ICON Park Promenade

“ICON Park’s recent, guest-driven enhancements are making our property the top short-stay destination for locals and tourists in Florida,” said Chris Jaskiewicz, president, and CEO of ICON Park. “These investments in money and time show our optimism, and we enjoy seeing how much our guests enjoy the updates.”

ICON Park is at the center of the Orlando Entertainment District. With free parking and conveniently located near I-4, Universal Boulevard and the Beachline, this premiere entertainment complex is easy to access for any Central Florida resident or Orlando tourist.
