My family and I rode the skywheel when it was just turning dark. From one view we could see the lights of Myrtle Beach and the other a never ending sea....beautiful. Warning: If you are afraid of heights, do not ride this ride.

Sounds like you went at the perfect time. But don't worry if you are afraid of heights. It's tall but the views are amazing and the ride is so comfortable that you can overcome your fears!

Loved the view! We loved the view and it was refreshing to know that there was air conditioning in each unit.

You must do this it is a little scary at first, but certainly worth the ride!! What an amazing view. The ride is a little short as it only goes around two full times.

Fun for the entire family. A great view of the beach. Wait until dusk if you want to ride when the skywheel is lit up.
