I hate rides. But my Mom and son wanted to ride this Sky Wheel. So glad I sucked it up. The view was beautiful and priceless. I cant believe how not scared I was when we reached the top. I was comfortable and love the sites. Will totally do it again!!.

The view from the SkyWheel at night is amazing. I have fears of heights, but since the ride has locks on the doors it was not bad. The pod is air conditioned in summer and makes the ride very pleasant. I have been on the Wheel both during the day and night and loved the views on both.

This is an awesome adventure. Each cabin is air conditioned and very clean. It is great, I was amazed at the scenery. I vacation in Myrtle Beach for years, but this gave me a different view that I had never seen before.

I think we had 4 full revolutions at a very slow pace with several stops and starts over the beautiful ocean and city views. They discount the tickets for... More

Skywheel is good for a 1-time experience. It is an overpriced ferris wheel that only makes of couple of rounds. Seeing the ocean from above is pretty but not much else to look at. The climate controlled enclosures on the ferris wheel are nice.

This giant ferris wheel is in the heart of original Myrtle Beach. The individual cars are fully glass enclosed and roomy. It is a gentle smooth ride suitable for all ages. A fun activity that doesn't take all day or risk a detached retina.
