It's neat to do the Skywheel but they didn't shut it down during a thunderstorm which scared me! It's fairly expensive given the ride isn't very long and the coupons only offered $1 off. Neat to try once though

Air conditioned and comfortable. Do not have anything to eat or drink while in line, unless you can see there is a really long line. You will have to throw it out when you reach the photo area before the landing dock.

The view from the sky wheel was breathtaking. The gondola cars were fully enclosed which made the ride more enjoyable. A little pricey for a couple times around. Altogether good experience.

I went here with someone and we went on this. It wasn't bad. I liked how close it was to the ocean. It is beautiful at night but during the day you can see more of a view as well.

The skyWheel had amazing views of Myrtle Beach. The kids had fun pointing out local attractions. We also loved the pictures.
