The Orlando Eye, a popular I-Drive attraction which is known to operate occasionally, is now open again after closing for an impressive 11 day stretch. 

On October, 26, at precisely 4 p.m., the Orlando Eye shocked the world by not only allowing guests to purchase tickets, but letting guests ride on the attraction.

Parent company Merlin Entertainment says the tourist wheel, which once tapped tourists for 3 hours with out air conditioning, was closed for "routine maintenance." 

Since opening on May 4, the Orlando Eye has had a tough time staying open. Hopefully, we're in for a long run of consecutive days without a breakdown. 

If still you're thinking about riding this thing, be sure to check the operating status here
