I am afraid of heights but went one night with my husband for date night. We really enjoyed the view and all the lights.

This was our 2nd trip to Myrtle Beach and the Skywheel. You get great views of the ocean, the coastline heading north and south, and the city of Myrtle Beach. This is on the boardwalk and a must do while in town.

There was only a short wait to ride during the Christmas season. There was a beautiful view and the ride was smooth and very nice although I tend to be nervous on rides. Not scary at all.

We went on the Myrtle Beach Skywheel to get a good view of the beach and the city. While not as elaborate or high as the London Eye in England, it did afford a chance to view the area from a good height. It was a quiet day so there was no line-up to board the Skywheel. I think it... More

I thought it was ok to be that high in the sky. The view was fabulous. My hubby, however, was not impressed. He was scared and wanted out of the sky wheel.

Great time with my 12-year-old daughter! Perfect way to cap off the day with the night time ride on the sky wheel. Great view of the whites of Myrtle Beach including the hotels and the honky-tonk strip.
