Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, Myrtle Beach

4.2
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.

  • We went on the SkyWheel in July! There were 5 adults in our party and we all fit in one car. The cars each had there own air conditioning unit which was wonderful on those really hot days on the beach...  more »
  • Took my step daughter as a birthday gift and she loved it could have lasted a little longer for the price but still worth it.  more »
  • The notice from afar and is definitely a landmark, an attraction for young and old, the opportunity to enjoy the view of the sea from above. Should always check opening times and days.

  • 5 stars for 5 times goin around! Faster and a better experience than expected. The ride lasts around 15 minutes or so and you get to see so much, it also has air conditioning and a really friendly helpful staff. Waiting in line also goes by really quickly and it is extremely well organized
  • Great view of the beach and ocean. The enclosure you ride in is air conditioned. My kids loved it. I wish it was a bit longer for the price, it went around 4 times. We went around 1pm and we waited maybe 10minutes to get on.
  • Totally worth it! Got right on despite the Boardwalk being very busy. Maybe waited 15 minutes, max. Views are incredible. Climate control was a nice feature especially on a hot day (we went in the evening).
  • You can see the whole boardwalk and most of the surrounding area. A little pricey but under 2 is free. I didn't have to wait. It's a great was to start your boardwalk visit!
  • Personally, it was pretty boring. My 4 year old liked it. (She likes picking her nose too). The staff was rude. They didn't care that small children were standing in the direct sunlight in 95 degree weather while we waited. They got to stand in the shade and one gentleman in particular was extremely rude when anyone asked about moving to a shady spot for the duration of our wait. His attitude ruined the ride before it even started. Customer service-less person in a customer service job...
