Earlier this week, we broke the news that Blake Shelton is opening his fourth location of “Ole Red” here in Florida. It’ll be built right under the Orlando Eye (ICON 360 Observation Wheel) next year with a planned opening in 2020.
The news was confirmed Friday on the Ole Red website. Blake says this location was chosen so his fans can have some family fun. He says, “I think it’s impossible to visit Orlando and not have a good time, and that’s why I know Ole Red is going to fit right in.”
The first Ole Red opened in Blake’s hometown in Oklahoma last year. Ryman Hospitality CEO Collin Reed says the complex was an ideal choice because of all the tourists who visit. “The development site we have identified is in a prime entertainment zone that will put the Ole Red brand in front of the more than 70 million people who visit Orlando each year.”
