Amazing View!!!

The ride was very nice and we enjoyed getting a good view of the ocean. The staff was very polite and made our ride great. Planning to go again.

We rode this at night and the views were amazing. I think it's a tad bit overpriced. My young children enjoyed it as well. Long line but it is air conditioned.

It's expensive (even with a military discount, we calculated it at $2.20 per revolution per person), you go around five times and the wait can be quite long. Standing in the hot sun for this just wasn't worth it in my opinion, but if you do go, I'd pick early morning or evening to avoid some of the crowds. Ask... More

This is a nice, relaxing ride on the boardwalk! It's worth the wait and I definitely recommend going to Landshark afterward.

We always go on the skywheel every year while we are at the beach. The staff is always wonderful, until this year some of the staff members we're the rudest people I had met. Customer service is not in the cards for some of the staff members. Other than that you can't beat the view.

My 87 year old Mother and 8 year old Great-Niece rode this together and both came off with huge smiles. A wonderful downtown ride for families.

It's fun and the views are great. Yes, it's not cheap, but what is? You're on vacation - have fun and enjoy yourself.

Well worth the wait! Despite having to wait in a long line up, it went fairly fast. Very roomy seating, great view of the ocean, piers and Myrtle Beach! We went up at night and the view was stunning with all the lights glowing.
