Orlando Eye Takes Full Advantage of LED Lights

You likely seen a Ferris wheel lit up at night at least a few times, but have you seen one that was covered in 64,000 lights? Better yet, have you seen one that is completely lit up by LED bulbs? If not, you should stop by the Orlando Eye the next time you’re in Florida. This striking Ferris wheel lit up for the first time last month, and the company behind it, Merlin Entertainment, has big plans for its future.

Depending on the day, the Ferris wheel will be lit up using different colors. For example, on Christmas the wheel may be red and green, and on Memorial Day it could be red, white, and blue. There are hundreds of options to choose from, but people who are actually riding on it may have an even better view than onlookers. It takes 20 minutes to go around the entire wheel, and it offers people a complete 360-degree view of the city.

Illumination USA - Outdoor LightingWith the Ferris wheel taking full advantage of LED technology, the company expects that they will be using 92% less energy than they would otherwise with ordinary bulbs. This is great news, because it’s just another example of the benefits LED lights provide. We hope to see LED lights used in more Ferris wheels and other types of entertainment in the coming years.

While you may not have a Ferris wheel in your yard, we know you may still need some exterior lighting. If you too would like to take advantage of the power of LED lights, give us a call today!
