We rode the skywheel on a hazy evening so we didn't see the sunset we'd hoped, but it was a nice ride, approximately 15 minutes. One of our seats wasn't very clean, hence the three stars.

Rode at sunset, enjoyed the scenery but thought it was a bit pricey for 5 trips around. (Since when are 13 year olds considered adults).

I will be honest, I think it’s way over priced. But it does offer a discount for military and first responders. Kids enjoyed it.

The view is "AWESOME" however the Price is Very Expensive !! I used a Coupon and the price was still way too much ?? Something you will only want to do as a Novelty .....

This was a great way to get some great pictures. We really enjoyed it. We had a specific time which was nice. We had our picture taken which you are able to purchase after the ride or you can decline.

Awesome ride to see the beautiful ocean and roof top views! If you're. If you're not scared of heights I'd definately put this on your to do list!

I absolutely love ferris wheels and loved the views being at the top looking out over Myrtle Beach. Definitely go at night, when you can see the lights.
