“What a Fantastic View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

This is great to do if you can go when the line isn't a one hour wait. It's a huge, enclosed Ferris wheel that is TALL!!! and right at the beach, so when you are the top you have a great view up and down the beach, across the ocean, and over the city. It was super fun and I would do it again.

“It IS motorized wheelchair accessable !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We rode it around 1130 am and found the views to be wonderful . I was more than pleased to find it is easily acceded by wheelchair. It is a little costly for a roughly 12 minute ride ( $13.00 without a coupon ) We had a $2.00 off coupon from the Atlantica Resort at check in. I am sure it cost a lot to operate . I did see people walk up and see what it cost and then turn away. I am glad we did it . I would have given it a 5 except for the cost due to the views , comfort and friendliness of the staff and accessibility.

“Birthday in Myrtle Beach”

Had the one time experience to go on this skywheel. It was awesome. When I go back to MB, I will visit it again. You can really see it all from up there.

“Loved the experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great view of the beach and beyond. Comfortable air conditioned cars are totally enclosed for those who are not fond of their legs dangling freely above. It's as beautiful by day as it is by night. We'll do it every time we visit MB. ( and that's yearly). We had four in the bucket and were able to switch sides for photos and views. Plenty of restaurants, bars and other attractions in the area. The new boardwalk is fabulous.

“Nice View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Nice view of the coast. The car is ventilated and clean. The only downfall is the ride was too short and not really worth the charge.
