The skyWheel is air conditioned so it is a comfortable ride, we found that the ticket price was very pricey at $13,00 per person though.

What fantastic views of the beach and the area around the SkyWheel. The carriage was large, air conditioned, held 4 - 6 people very comfortably, and you could get great photos through the glass. Don't miss the chance of getting a birds eye view of very flat country, but beautiful country. If you are only a party of one or two, they do not put other people in the car with you. I feel that the admission fee is very reasonable for a very well run operation.

The Skywheel was one of the main things I wanted to do at Myrtle Beach. It is a little pricey for a 8 minute ride, but the views of the beach are fantastic. I was a little nervous never having been on a ferris wheel and I don't like heights, but it wasn't bad. The cars are enclosed and air conditioned with nice padded seats. It is not your typical ferris wheel.

The skywheel is definitely something you should do once, but I probably wouldn't do it again given that it cost a family of four about $50 and is a short ride. The ride is very comfortable with air-conditioning and a nice smooth ride.
