We really enjoyed the ride on the SkyWheel with the exception of it being overpriced. They could make the ride shorter and cut back on the price.

Walking along the Myrtle Beach boardwalk is fun to do any time of the year, and riding the SkyWheel should be part of your experience. It's heated in the winter, and air conditioned in the summer. Check for lines, sometimes it can be quite backed up. We found the staff helpful in making suggestions about when to come back if... More

The Skywheel gives you great views of the area and kids love it. Similar to the Sky Wheel in Niagara Falls and other places. Definitely bring a camera.

Fun to look out over the beach and all around. Cars are very comfortable. We had done this last year and my sister was eager to ride again. The resort gave us one free ticket so this made it more attractive to ride again. We enjoyed it very much and there is no long lines in January.

We visited Myrtle Beach in the off season. A lot of things were either closed for season, or closed early. My son was glad to see the Skywheel was open. The Skywheel is 200 feet tall, we were able to see for miles, the weather was beautiful. The cost for admission seemed a little steep, luckily the hotel gave us... More

If you are in Myrtle beach this is a must do. Don't worry it's enclosed and heated so no need to fear falling out. I loved every second of it and can't wait to go again!

We rode the SkyWheel this past weekend. The views are great! It was worth the $13.00 each. We took great photos~

Rode this on a whim thinking it would be "cute". It was surprisingly modern, comfortable, and felt very safe. We had amazing views up and down the coastline! The ride was slow and smooth and did not leave either of us feeling queasy. Several revolutions per ride.

Myself and two friends decided to try the SkyWheel at night. I have been to Myrtle Beach a million times but have never been on this. It was great!!! We had such fun! It is all glass so you can get a complete view of the area. I will admit that we did get a little scared when you are... More
