“Worth the price”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

This was our first trip to the area so we really enjoyed the view from up above. The wheel goes around several times and will even stop at different points so you can take photo's. Each carriage is totally glass so that allows a view and photo from every angle. This is a really neat attraction to have right on the beach. The lines were short and the employees were friendly. We would highly recommend this attraction to anyone planning a visit.

“Enjoyable, even though not fond of heights!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

I've lost count of how many times I have rode the Skywheel since it opened, always very enjoyable, despite of my dislike of heights!

“Too mcuh money and what a boring ride”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

This ferris wheel ride cost $13.00 to ride for 10 minutes. It was so boring. The ferris wheel moves really slow, you can hear the wind trying to get through the door, The view at night sucks because it is not really lit up so you cannot see the ocean. I do not recommend this ride to anyone. Save your money and go do something fun.

“Beautiful sight, Lots of fun for the whole family”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

What a way to see Myrtle beach. At night you can see forever. the sight is fun, and the people are very friendly. The kids love the view. We had a great time walking the strip and see all the great shops, and sights.

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Kinda of pricey, but well worth it. It lasts about 12 minutes and you can get some beautiful pics. Very relaxing, some good family quiet time. Take advantage!
