What an awesome view of the beach, ocean and Boardwalk in Myrtle Beach. It is enclosed and heated or air conditioned. I took someone with me that was afraid of heights but they "loved" the Skywheel. It is a must do in Myrtle Beach. Don't let the price stop you...it is worth it. Ask for senior pricing too.

I have not been on the Skywheel yet but might in the future. But being a resident of the area, I love just riding down to the boardwalk to see it. It's visible at night for 2-3 miles away. The other ride nearby just adds to the excitement. This attraction has added so much to the downtown area. Can't wait... More

I took my granddaughter and my 90 year old mother on the sky wheel recently. We had a wonderful time. It was smooth and comfortable, fun for all ages. The staff was helpful in getting my mother on and off the ride. All in all, a nice adventure.

It was worth the money to go up and view Myrtle Beach that took my away. I am SCARED of heights! But the wheel moves slowly and the PODS are air conditioned and covered. My grand children and I had the best time. We were able to see Dolphins jumping in the ocean below as well. It was a great... More

located in the heart of the action, the skywheel is a must do attraction. Although it is pretty at night, the photo ops are a day time thing. Even if you don't like heights, you should be ok because you are totally enclosed and if you really can't handle it, there is a button you can push and they will... More

We've ridden the London Eye and the Vegas High Roller and had high expectations for the Skywheel, but actually it's just a Ferris wheel. You get 4 spins in an enclosed air conditioned capsule. Fun views but we had enough after 2 spins.

You can see everything from the top. Air conditioned cars that make you feel safe with 360 views! A little expensive but an amazing ride and view if the ocean and Myrtle Beach.

Had to experience this once, so we dragged my husband on, who balked at the $13pp price (that's more than $50 for a family of four for a ferris wheel!). But we were on vacation and wanted to see what it was all about, so we bit the bullet. The gondolas are comfortable, all enclosed, and temperature controlled. The view... More

This is a great attraction, the gondola is enclosed and moves smoothly. It's quite the view at 200ft, you get 4 revolutions, which is good because the first one is "why did I do this". The price is good, there's AAA/CAA discount as well as coupons available. They offer to take your photo as you enter but at $26, I... More
