A little pricey, but wonderful views from the top. And the gondolas are air conditioned! We were lucky that we didn't have to wait long for the ride. (It was very hot and many people were trying to stay in the air conditioning.) Glad we rode and probably would do again if we come back.

We paid $12 per adult and $8 per child. Get a coupon from one of the coupon books that are at the visitors centers or hotels (I think it was $1 off each). The ride lasts approximately 10 minutes. Each car was air conditioned and windows were tinted so you didn't feel like you were going to bake in it.... More

This is a "must do" if you go to Myrtle Beach! It's about a 10 minute ride but well worth the money! The views are spectacular!

Everyone who travels to the Myrtle Beach area for vacation, should be sure and take the time to ride the SKY WHEEL. The price is well worth the time and the view from the air conditioned cabins were well enjoyed on the hot summer afternoon this July. Not only did we enjoy the great view, we were also able to...

Went here for Mother's Day and enjoyed it so much with my family. Wish it would go around a few more times, but still worth it!

Go during off peak hours to avoid long lines. I went at dusk and only waited about 15 minutes. I wouldn't do it again but the view was incredible.

If you want something different and tired of the same old t-shirt/smoke shops on OD, then take a spin on the Sky Wheel. Wonderful view of the strip and gives you some great photo opps. A little pricey for 2-3 times around, just depends on the crowd. Get there early to beat the long lines. All compartments have plenty of... More
