“Nice and slow and even bearable if you are afraid of heights IF you have your eyes closed the whole time! Lol”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I am afraid of heights, but did this because my husband is a dare devil and wanted to do it. I peeked every now and then, and the ride, I must say, was not scary at all. It was a nice, slow speed and appealing to even those who are afraid of heights!

“Fun ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Not a thrill ride but very unique and glad we did it! The view was awesome! The cost was a little much to go around about 4 times but we had fun and made memories with friends. NOT the London Eye by any means but a fun experience. (The ride will not shut down unless there is a consistant 50 mile an hour wind) We rode it during some gusts of 30 mile and hour and did not notice anything unusual.

We do offer discounts in the local coupon books. We are definitely not the London Eye, we have much better views of the ocean and the beach!

“Great Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Went once in the day once at night. The views are spectacular from the top. Well worth your time and not that expensive. The ocean view is wonderful by day and the reflections in nearby hotels are breathtaking.

“Excellent entertainment and views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Be sure and get a discount coupon from your hotel or the Monster coupon book. Great way to see the Grand Strand! A lot of fun when they stop you at the top to load people at the bottom.

“Was ok for a one time try”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

was not worth the 12 Dollars per person that you have to pay to ride. I think they would make more money if the price was cheaper. .
