The Ferris wheel was beautiful, the views spectacular. I am afraid of heights, but wanted to overcome my fears, it was challenging. The wheel was run very efficiently, and there is a red panic button if you need to get off. Good to know!

Went on this with the kids, And they loved it. The only issue was the line, but in fairness it was summer in Myrtle Beach. I would Recommend going as the sunsets

Be sure to check the weather when you go. We ended up going when it was cloudy and were not able to see much. There are coupons for tickets to this ride (one in the local attraction guide, some at visitors center).

This was our second time riding the Skywheel. Our July 3, 2015 ride was as much fun as our first ride over a year ago. Great view of the area. Ride is very smooth, and comfort controlled. I did see a couple employees helping a handicapped person get on and off the Skywheel. My wife and I will ride again... More

What beautiful views at night. Surprisingly a nice long ride and only a short wait to get on. Really enjoyed it.

I went on this only because my 5 year old son realllly wanted to. It gives you a great view of the city and the ocean, however, it's very expensive. For just a little bit more you can pay for a wrist band at Family Kingdom and ride all the rides including their Farris wheel! (Or just pay for enough... More

It is air conditioned, not shaky at all, goes slowly around, although I am afraid of heights, I had no issue at all and will do it again. Can seat up to six per unit however they do not place other parties with yours. Can find a coupon in the coupon books if you look. My family did the $13... More

I went on this ride with my wife and 2 of our grown children about a week ago. It's easy to find, right next to the ocean. We went on a weekday in the early afternoon. The line to get on was very short. The cars which guests ride in are completely enclosed, air conditioned, and very comfortable. The four... More
