Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, Myrtle Beach

4.3
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 great! It’s really big so you can see for miles and when you use groupon you save $10 on two tickets. If your by yourself, treat a random stranger to a ride in the sky wheel and get to know t...  more »
  • I love the sky wheel! I am local and have taken many people to ride it. I love that the cars are enclosed. In the winter they are heated and in the summer they are cooled. The view is incredible and e...  more »
  • Enjoyed this SkyWheel this morning. Cold Saturday here but the climate controlled gondola was very comfy even with the cold and wind. Took some great photos but when the wheel stopped at the very top ...  more »

  • Great way to get a bird's eye view of the area. Not much to it, get in, go around a few times, leave. Fun to see everything, but not something you will do more than once. -1 star for the price of the ticket. A little high being that the photos at the end were an additional $20 on top of the cost just to ride it.
  • Got to go around more than what we thought we would. The kids loved it. Great view and they gave me a military discount.
  • What an awesome experience! It's very scary and I'll probably never do it again BUT it's so worth the amazing view. Definitely go at night so you can see all the lights on the boardwalk. It was a really fun time.
  • Ideal family ride, sure to give you a great view of the action. It's pricy but you get several rotations for sight seeing. The ride is leisurely, and so smooth you won't notice how high up it goes. It's air conditioned and sun tinted if you really need a heat break.
  • Amazing attraction, amazing view, and air conditioned. Great to go anytime of year, with off season having less crowds. I've rode at least 5 times and have loved it every time!
