I was skeptical of the $12 fee but staff was friendly, gondolas were heated, rode four rounds and the view was awesome!

I came to the Skywheel in June, and thought it was overpriced. Its not much to look at, and certainly not a thrill ride as advertised in the brochure. However, you can see great views of the ocean from the ride. I wont be back, as it is very pricey.

My husband and I ride this every time we go to Myrtle Beach, but at New Year's it was an awesome ride. We could see so much more of the beach without all the umbrella's and people out and about. Well worth the money.

The skywheel is well worth the $12 ticket. Beautiful views from the 200 ft Ferris wheel. Cars are stable and heated. Staff was very friendly.

This is a great activity for families and non families. This is attraction is wonderful day or night. The cars are clean and provide plenty of cool air. Great value for the price paid. The line moves quickly and the ride lasts longer than expected.

This was our first time riding the sky wheel and we loved it. I thought it was worth the money and we had about a twenty minute ride. The pictures we took from the top were amazing. You need to do this at least one time on your visit to Myrtle Beach 🌴

This is one of the few attractions in Myrtle Beach that was open during the off season, but that meant no wait and we got to go around 6 times! I've been told the wait can be over an hour in peak season. We went as the sun was setting and it was fun to see the ocean view in... More

we went for a spin just around dusk. The view north and south is amazing. You can actually see the shape of the shoreline as it bends ever so slightly outward giving the appearance of a bow. I was surprised at how green everything looked because of the canopy of trees that go unnoticed from the ground. At that time... More

The SkyWheel is one of those things you have to do on your first trip to Myrtle beach. It's pricey $13 gets you 3 times around. Our hotel gave us one free pass so not too bad. Great view from up there and pretty fun.
