On May 28, you and your family should absolutely come out to enjoy the new Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger — along with all the rides, sights, and attractions that ICON Park has become known for.
Introducing: The Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger
While you can certainly have a hamburger any day of the year, an event like National Burger Day is ideal for something as enjoyable as the Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger.
This is a white cheddar cheeseburger expertly topped with a unique bourbon bacon jam. That jam is made with Maker’s Mark bourbon to maximize flavor and give bourbon aficionados that taste they’ve fallen in love with over the years. Also included are crispy shallots and Shake Shack’s famous ShackSauce piled on a toasted potato bun.
It’s the bourbon bacon jam that makes this such a unique treat. It melds together that iconic Maker’s Mark Kentucky bourbon flavor, aged with notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak, with the sensation only bacon can bring to the table. The bacon has been smoked for six hours over genuine applewood. This creates a bite that’s equal parts sweet and savory, with woodsy and smoky flavors.
“We love crafting fun, delicious menu items in an elevated way, inspired by our fine-dining roots and always with an emphasis on premium ingredients,” said Mark Rosati, culinary director at Shake Shack. “We can’t wait to show off our new Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger and kick off the summer in the right way.”
Pricing on the Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger begins at just $8.49.
But what if you don’t want a cheeseburger, you ask? Don’t worry — you can still celebrate the day with the Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Chicken Sandwich. This features a crispy chicken breast topped with white cheddar, the bourbon bacon jam made from Maker’s Mark, and pickles on a toasted potato bun.
Pricing on the Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Sandwich begins at $8.09.
More Exciting Attractions at ICON Park
These tasty new menu items aren’t the only reason to come out to ICON Park on May 28 — or any other day, for that matter. The park has long been home to the type of experience that will make your visit to beautiful Orlando, Florida, complete.
Chief among these is The Wheel at ICON Park — not your average Ferris wheel.
The Wheel at ICON Park is a jaw-dropping 400-foot-tall observation wheel that gives you one of the most incredible views of the entire Orlando area that you’re likely to find without being in an airplane.
With prices starting at just $28.99 per person per ride, it’s the perfect way to start — or end — your Florida vacation. If you’d like to buy tickets to The Wheel to make sure that your place is secured, you can buy tickets in advance on the Tiqets website.
Another exciting attraction you’ll want to see during your visit is the Museum of Illusions. It has more than 20 locations all over the globe and the only place you’ll find it in the United States is at ICON Park. It features stunning, jaw-dropping walk-through exhibits that expand your mind in ways few can predict. It needs to be seen to be believed.
Also in ICON Park is Madame Tussauds Orlando — the famous wax museum that will have you feeling like you’re rubbing elbows with some of the biggest stars in the world. If you’ve ever wanted to take a picture with Taylor Swift or say you stood next to Batman, this is your chance.
ICON Park is also home to some of the best shopping and dining experiences anywhere in the Orlando area. There are more than 40 venues and restaurants for you to choose from, offering dishes sourced from around the globe. If you’re looking to follow your Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger or Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Chicken Sandwich with a full meal, you’ll have plenty of other offerings available.
In terms of shopping opportunities, you’ll find that spread throughout the park are boutiques featuring everything from flip-flops to chic sunglasses.
