This was the first thing my boys (5&7) and I did upon arriving in Myrtle Beach. I am scared of heights and was 100% scared on this ride but still had a blast! It lit up the sky at night and really made the boardwalk look amazing. I think it was priced just right. We went around 4 or 5... More

Loved it so much we are going back to ride again when it's dark. It's a smooth ride. I felt totally safe. Clean, air conditioned car with an emergency button in case you want off. The ride includes three rotations around. The view is breathtaking. $14 for 12 and above.

Worth the ride if you have a good coupon. The six minute ride is fairly quick and the view is nice. Surprised to find them pushing a $30 photo package on you after your six minute ride. I didn't need four different prints of the same picture. I would have paid $15 for one but they wanted you to buy... More

Finally decided to try the SkyWheel. I will say that I think it's a little pricey, but I also think that it's definitely worth doing it at least once. The enclosed cars have 2 bench seats which could easily fit 6 people comfortably. There are adjustable air conditioning vents in the ceiling of the cars so it's easy to adjust... More

It cost $14.00 per adult to ride this. So for three of us it was $42.00. 10 minutes later and four trips around we were done. That means it cost us over $10 per revolution and it is not even that high.

Road this with my daughter and granddaughter, only because my 8 year old wanted to ride so badly. Its 15$ for approximately 5 rounds. I think that's a lot , the ride is high ,no problem you do feel safe, however,for the money I wouldn't do it again.

Although not fond of scary rides, I was convinced to give this one a try and enjoyed the terrific views. On the way back down, I relaxed as we got closer to the ground. However, I relaxed too soon as it actually goes around several times. Worth a visit.
