We had a fun ride. It's a great way to see the town, and we would recommend it to other people visiting Myrtle Beach. The staff wasn't very friendly, but the attraction was great. Just the right amount of time in the sky.

we ride both daytime and night. At daytime, you can watch the sea and all the people on the beach, nice and high. At night time, when all lights lit, the skywheel itself looks so pretty, and looked down to the downtown myrtle beach, it is glorious! I told all my friends to come and try!

Was worried about the ferris wheel being so tall! It is very safe and not scarey at all! The operators are very careful about the patrons safety. Does not run if it is windy or unsafe weather! Beautiful view when on top! Pleasantly surprised the seats are totally enclosed and air conditioned but not claustrophobic.

The sky wheel was on my bucket list and when my husband asked me to renew our vows it was his idea to do it on the sky wheel. It really showed me how much he loved me. He not only agreed to do it for my bucket list item and to renew our vows but he did it because... More

At $13 for adults and $9 for children, I expected something grander. Taking a family will put a dent in your wallet. An 8-10 minute ride with three revolutions isn't much. Including tax, for a family of 4, it's like paying $323 per hour for something. The climate controlled gondolas are different. I missed having the sea breeze in my... More

It did have a beautiful veiw from the top. Nice to do one time and say you did it. Im going back next summer but won't be doing it again. The car/lifts where clean and had air. You go around like 3 full circles after they load everyone. Like I said nice for a first time visit .

My wife and I went on this ride on the first day of our visit at Myrtle Beach. After the ride was over she replied: It was a waste of our money!

SkyWheels are fantastic and the one at MB is no exception. It is located in the heart of MB right on the beach. Wow! You get three rotations. Looking at downtown and the Atlantic Ocean from that height. It is a must do.
