The Skywheel was nice. Me and the wife like the view of the beach. The only thing is the price is too high, and they try to charge for the photos at the end. The photos should be included in the ticket price.

This a visual that is seen on Myrtle beach however the advertisements forgets to let folks know they close it for refurbishing during the winter! It always looks deserted when we visit and I wouldn’t want to be here during the season!

What a great place to take the family. The only wheel that is bigger and better is the London Eye. Don't miss this place.

I loved the view from the SkyWheel but it was way to expensive. We were there when It wasn’t very crowded so you would think they would let you ride a little longer but the ride was short. At that price, you ride one time...More

Know this. The Sky Wheel is not a thrill ride. If that's what you're looking for there's a human slingshot called "Free Fall" just up the street that will rocket you 175 feet straight up into the air in 3 seconds flat, and then you...More
