“Excellent View”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

If you don't mind a small wait to get into the 10-minute ride on the 200 foot Ferris Wheel in Downtown Myrtle Beach, then it's worth it. It really gives you a fabulous view of the entire city, and in a gondola-like cabin, it feels very safe. It's a once in a lifetime chance, so do it.

“Nice, once.”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

This is a great adventure. The ride is awesome. You can see forever!!! The only drawback is the price. 3 adults and 1 child with a discount still $40 for a 5-7 min ride maybe.

“Nice, clean ride”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

It is a very nice and clean ride. Since it is all enclosed, it is not as intimidating as a smaller but open Ferris wheel. The price is a little high, so find a coupon. You do get to go around about four times. We went at night and the reflection in a nearby building was cool.

“Pricey, but a nice view”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

The view is nice, but not necessarily a $13 per person value. While it was a nice break during a walk on the boardwalk, it is an activity that since we've done it once, we probably wouldn't do it again on a future visit.

“Great Views”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

My husband and I went on the sky wheel. The views are breathtaking. You can see for miles if you go during the day. You go around 4 times, the cars are climate controlled and they are completely enclosed. Great pictures. I believe the sky wheel is 22 stories high. We paid 12.00 per person.
