Lovely views of the Myrtle Beach coastline.....We went at 5PM on a Thursday evening in April, found metered parking a block away and stepped right onto a gondola. This was a nice experience but I can't imagine standing in line for 90 minutes on a hot day with a cranky crowd to see it.

I took my family on the SkyWheel on a Saturday afternoon on an overcast day, and the line was very short...we waited all of 5 minutes. My little girls loved the view.

it was very high, and i enjoy the view especially at night. i like it because it was high, smoothly, and i did not like it because it was stooped high and it got me a bit scared

We were here off-season and got right on. I am a little nervous of heights but found this ride very relaxing and fun. The views are fantastic. I liked that we had our own car for our small family. It was quite enjoyable and I would do it again. We had reduced passes from a convention we were attending so... More

The sky wheel was the best ride ever. Very enjoyable. You get to go around 3 times. I went on with my 2 daughters ages 12 & 8. The views from the top were breathtaking. Can't wait to do it again!

At $15 a person the Sky Wheel is a bit pricey but a fun thing to do once in a lifetime. The gondolas hardly rock and you got a beautiful view of the ocean.

We enjoy this every time we visit the area. I don't think it has anymore movement than an elevator. the views are amazing. The best times to ride are as the sun sets and after dark.
