Let’s face it, there’s nothing like biting into a good American burger. And when that burger is made using top-quality ingredients and is crafted with true epicurean skill, the experience can be transcendent. Renowned for their Shackburgers, Shake Shack has been perfecting something new. After teaming up with premium bourbon distillers Maker’s Mark, they added smoked bacon to the complex bourbon to create a jam that’s both savory and sweet, packing the right amount of heat and smoke. Their classic burger (single or double) is topped with jam, aged white cheddar, and crispy shallots, and served on a potato bun. This burger has been six years in the making, and to show it off, Shake Shack will proudly serve it up at ICON Park Orlando.
May 28 is National Burger Day and there’s no better way to celebrate than at ICON Park Orlando. With entertainment spread across 20 acres on Independence Drive in the heart of Orlando’s entertainment district, there’s always more fun to be had. There are no gates at ICON Park, and admission and parking is free. There’s always more to explore at the entertainment venue. With over 40 restaurants and a plethora of boutiques, there’s something for everyone. It’s the perfect base for visiting such popular attractions as Sea Life Orlando Aquarium, Madame Tussauds Orlando, and Arcade City.
ICON Park features the very best spot for seeing all of Orlando and beyond: The Wheel. It’s 40 stories high and lit up in different color displays, and The Wheel will seamlessly lift you 400 feet into the air, where you’ll be able to view Cape Canaveral, downtown Orlando, Disney World, Universal Studios and more, all from an air-conditioned capsule. You can reserve a capsule for groups of up to 10. Buy your tickets in advance for one of Orlando’s most popular attractions. Packages including tickets to The Wheel and other attractions are available, as are options to sip champagne on your journey into the heights for a one-of-a-kind bird’s-eye view of Orlando.
At the base of The Wheel, ICON Park features the Wheelhouse Market Food Hall, which not only has a wide range of dining options, but also In The Game, featuring:
— Games and prizes
— Mirror Maze
— Escape Room
— 7D Motion Theater
— Virtual Reality
It’s the perfect family-friendly arcade and game room. There’s even a Build-A-Bear Workshop at ICON Park for the kids. And if you’ve got little ones, or want to get in touch with your inner child, check out the Pearl Express Train. ICON Park Orlando is excellent fun for the whole family. But there’s much more to ICON Park, with live music, romantic dining options, and the light-festooned brick promenade, making it the perfect day (and night) out for everyone. The Tin Roof and country superstar Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Orlando are ideal places to enjoy some nightlife.
Popular with tourists and locals alike, Tin & Taco has been a must-go Mexican spot in Orlando for some time, while Sloppy Joe’s offers a taste of the Florida Keys. Those are just a few of the local favorites that ICON Park offers. But you’ll want to mark your calendar for May 28 if you’ve been hankering for one of those Shake Shack burgers. Pricing starts at $8.49. Intrigued by that bacon bourbon jam but not a burger fan? Shake Shack has crafted a crispy chicken version, with the Maker’s Mark Bourbon bacon jam, aged white cheddar, and pickles on a potato bun, starting at $8.09. Of course, you can’t forget about the shakes. This May, the Shack will feature several special flavors, including Oreo funnel cake, chocolate churro, and chocolate pie. Or check out the seasonal lemonades if you prefer something lighter to wash down your burger. Just remember, ICON Park’s brick promenade is the perfect spot for an after-burger stroll and some casual shopping.
While the Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger and Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Chicken Sandwich will only be available for a limited time, they are currently available at Shack Shack at ICON Park Orlando. Plan a party, celebration, or group event at ICON Park and order food for everyone at Shake Shack. So many fun activities, so much to see, and excellent food means everyone will have a great time. As you’re creating the perfect Orlando memories, take pictures and tag #ICONPark on social media. A good burger is worth remembering, and the Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger is one you won’t forget anytime soon.
