I don’t like heights but this didn’t bother me. Large heated or air conditioned (depending on season) enclosed booths are what you ride in. Great views of the ocean and the city.

I would not pay $14 per person to ride this, but we took advantage of the Valentine's special, 2 people for $20...and it was, afterall, Valentine's Day! We enjoyed it. You get to go around 4 times, making the fee more reasonable.

This is one giant wheel and all the kids want to ride it. It is slow with lots of ons and offs but I get it as everyone want to ride.

This on a nice sunny day is a good way to see the whole area of myrtle beach. Can be a bit pricey so look for coupons.
