“Nice Views”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Went on it during the day, had a great view. A little pricey for the 9 minute ride. We were happy that we did it.

“Wonderful for a fraidy cat.”

The attendants were most kind and made sure you knew where the panic button was and checked on you each time around The car was clean. Easy to get to.

“Awesome views.”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Fun for adults, older children, and seniors but not exciting enough for teens and young adults and maybe too frightening for small children.
The view is fantastic!

“Spend your money elsewhere...”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

We saw a billboard advertisement for the sky wheel, it looked like an interesting outing. We drove from North Myrtle Beach to check it out. It was not hard to find right on Ocean Blvd. we for d parking easily on a Friday night. The ticket price is $13.00/person and the wheel goes around three times. I found this attraction a waste of time and money. The view of the ocean and the surrounding area is nice, but better if it is experienced first hand, not from the air. Just skip it and spend your money elsewhere. I would not go again and do not recommend this attraction.
