My husband and I went on the sky wheel. The views are breathtaking. You can see for miles if you go during the day. You go around 4 times, the cars are climate controlled and they are completely enclosed. Great pictures. I believe the sky wheel is 22 stories high. We paid 12.00 per person.

Wonderful! If you are scared of Ferris wheels, this is for you. The gondolas are closed, heat/ac controlled and feels like a magic carpet ride. You will not be afraid. It is smooth and safe. Hint: Get your tickets early ahead of time so you won't endure standing in line in the hot sun, but come back at your appointed... More

My husband and I went on the Sky Wheel as it looked fun and we wanted to check out the views. We went at the end of the day, just before sunset. The views were very nice. We even saw a rainbow over the ocean!For the price of admission you get to go around three times. The wheel moves very... More

if you looking for something to do then this is a fair price and u get to see the city from high above. I mean if you are going to pay $20 for a helicopter ride u can do 2 people for almost this price and see the same things.

Very neat way to see Myrtle Beach in a climate controlled gondola on a ferris wheel! The staff was very friendly and talked of places to visit and eat, and the front desk discounted our tix because he had been on a phone call while we waited in line. Very neat experience!

The view can't be beat. Its 13 dollars a person (adult) but it's such a good view its worth it. Cars are heated or air conditioned, enclosed, clean. Sometimes you may have to wait and that can be a drag but things move pretty fast.
