Cool Ride, but Too Expensive

Great ride and gives an awesome view of Myrtle Beach. I felt ticket prices way too expensive for the ride, though.

Enjoyed the awesome views from atop the SkyWheel. My wife had to hit the emergency switch as soon as we stopped on top. As soon as she got to the bottom she had to get off, she is terrified of heights.

I am a ferris wheel enthusiast (even though I can't ride roller coasters these do not bother me). It was looking like rain and I was hoping we would get our ride in as the ticket lady said they may have to shut down if it started raining. We parked nearby which takes cash (not sure if it does credit)... More

This SkyWheel is very comparable to the others both in price and ride length. It was a nice break from the heat of the boardwalk to overlook the beaches and the ocean. The operating staff were also very friendly.

The SkyWheel is a "must do" when in Myrtle Beach! The view is incredible. It offers great picture taking opportunities. It doesn't go very fast so the ride is nice & smooth. I am afraid of heights, but the cars are enclosed, so it really didn't bother me. You can find discount coupons online.

Overpriced. I wouldn't recommend. There is so many other things to do then waste your money on this ride.

We did the Skywheel at the request of my 4 year old son. He loved it! Recommend checking coupon books for discounts on tickets. No reason to pay full price for this!

Awesome! A little expensive as it was 14.00 per adult, but a fantastic view. It was a little scary high up there but so calming, relaxing, we didn't want it to end. For the 14.00 you got 3 full revolutions for your time which took about 5-10 full minutes.

It was alright. Fun and illuminating. Smelled kinda funky being inside one of those cube carts. (I don't know what they are called).
