Liked how close it was to our hotel. The lights at night. The panic button for my sister-in-law. She had to get off once around.

Once the ride is loaded with a certain amount of people, the wheel makes 4 or 5 rotations without stopping. The ride is professionally run, the attendants are friendly and the cars are clean. This is definitely worth doing at least... More

It's a little pricy for what you get. The views are nice though (we had a beautiful day), and the gondolas are almost all glass (not the floor), so it's easy to see out in any direction. It was a fun family event, but I wouldn't say it's a "must do."

Very overpriced for the amount of time on the ride. We were put on because some couldn't take the ride as we were next in line. therefore we didn't get the full allotted ride time.

There was nothing to dislike about this ride. It is $13.00 for adults and I would pay it again. Great view of the Myrtle Beach boardwalk area.
