A nice view but short ride for the expense. There is a restaurant and gift shop on premises. Haven't tried restaurant, and gift shop items were expensive.

Loved the SkyWheel. I took a day ride and was able to see so much of Myrtle Beach. Fun for the whole family.

It was a Ferris wheel. For $13 you got 3 to 4 rotations. They have enclosed cabs and it gives you a great view of the beach from north to south.

Took my 9 year old grandson on this ride and he was thrilled. Great views of Myrtle Beach coastline and Atlantic Ocean. Temperature controlled cars make for comfortable ride anytime during the year.

Spectacular experience 200 feet in the air and you still feel grounded. You ride in large, comfortable glass enclosed gondolas that don't seem to swing which provide grand views of the Strand and beachfront. A $13 charge takes you round three times making it well worth the value.

I liked the night ride it was great. The lights of Myrtle beach and boardwalk were beautiful. Keep the ticket for 7.00 off of the sky bungees across street. Which the kids will want to ride. Try and fit this family friendly ride into your visit

A little scary at first, but well worth the scare. The view from the top is fantastic. Temperature controlled. You don't feel like you are going to fall out with the enclosed seats. Very romantic at night.
