We rode it at night we could see up and down strip very well but not the ocean. You actually go around like 4 times so you get your money's worth

The skywheel was on our list of things to definitely do in Myrtle Beach. So glad we did! It was amazing! I had a coupon for a $1 off, but couldn't use it because it was after 7 pm.... so if you use a coupon, make sure there's no time limit.

This is a great attraction to see and in an excellent location. You can see the whole board walk along with a The beach.

Great view during the day, romantic at night. At the price it could be a bit longer of a ride, but still a great attraction.

We've gone several years in a row. It's a very fun experience for our young children, but the price is hefty for the length of the ride. It's fun, but pricey.
