Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, Myrtle Beach

(4.2/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
Fly high above the Atlantic Ocean with a ride on Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, a 57 m (187 ft) Ferris wheel opened in 2011. The wheel features 42 glass-enclosed, air-conditioned gondolas, each with bucket seating for six and UV protective windows designed for optimal viewing. The highlight of the wheel is a cutting-edge lighting system with more than one million LEDs, capable of creating a range of light effects best appreciated after sunset. Remember that vistas of the Myrtle Beach shoreline change at different times of day, providing you with a new perspective each time you ride the wheel. Avoid standing in long lines by booking your tickets online or by phone.

  • This was a really good ride, the staff was courteous and the pods were clean. The wait and price is a bit much, for the four (4) times around... At least six (6) times around would give you a little m...  more »

  • Nice view of the city and the shoreline. The ride lasted about 8-10 minutes. We went around 4 times. It was nice having it enclosed, especially on a windy day. It's a good one-time activity.  more »

  • So beautiful! The staff was fun and friendly as made us feel safe. The views were spectacular you can see everything. Can't wait to go again!
  • The views were spectacular but the ride only went around 3 times. I would feel very comfortable taking my children on it. The pictures at the end however were very steep, $30 for 4 pictures. It would be nice if they offered different packages.
  • It has the best view of the ocean, for sure! The picture package is kind of ridiculous, it cost as much as the tickets. They take your picture as soon as you get in line and after you get off the package is already printed up and hanging on the wall. You either buy it or they go throw it all away. Seems like a waste! But the Sky wheel itself is fun and the cars are air conditioned.
  • The line moved very quick. In my opinion, the VIP pass is too expensive and not worth it, but go for it if you want. The views were very pretty and the staff were nice.
  • Very cool. There are only two glass bottom carts though and it takes $30 ahead time, $30 when u get there, and $30 later... Whoa.
