A must for MB visitors. See the sights. All enclosed, seats were comfortable. Took amazing pictures during the day. Purchased a ticket to go in the evening,. Not crowded, due to being off season. Loved it!! Anyone who comes for a visit needs to experience it!

Great for tourist and visitors alike. Kinda of pricey for 3 trips around the wheel but the view is good. Also would be nice in the summer at night with the boardwalk lit up.

I have a tremendous fear of heights, but since it was fully enclosed, and seemed quite stable, I thought I would try it. While the wheel is going around, it is smooth and the view is spectacular. So relaxing, and temperature controlled. However, as you know, the wheel must stop to let people on and off, and I did freak... More

My husband and I are frequent visitors to Myrtle Beach. Always in the off season. We did the ride during the day. Awesome views. The nighttime ride has a light show and music. In season, the lines are intimidating. If you can stand the line or in town off season, completely worth it.

Slow ,safe enclosed car that takes you 200 feet up to view the town and Myrtle beach. My wife does not like looking down from up this high up but on this ride she felt safe . You have to try this ride.

it was a great ride. you could see everything for miles around. it was beautiful. The enclosed car was heated so we were not cold at all even though it was quite chilly outside. It was worth the money.
