A must do when in Myrtle Beach. Fabulous views from way up high. We enjoyed it and we were able to find a Groupon for a discount.

It was okay...good views of the beach in both directions. Area surrounding the Skywheel leaves a lot to be desired so would recommend families with little ones to go during the daylight hours

Totally fun, great view from the top. The wheel has enclosed air conditioned buckets, it moves slowly enough to enjoy, you also get four rounds on the wheel. I also recommend going back after dark, nice view of the Ocean Blvd at night.

Loved being able to see as far as the eye allowed over the ocean and along the beach. Felt very safe and the AC was a big help

We strolled past the Sky Wheel after having dinner. They recently closed down the Amusement park located off of 9th avenue and added the boardwalk along with the Sky Wheel and a few other rides. Typical beach vibe area with plenty of places to eat...More

Ferris wheels aren’t exciting by themselves, but the view of the beach was beautiful. My two year old really enjoyed looking around and was especially excited to see people being launched from an ejecto-seat attraction across the street. This is a nice ride if you...More

The kids chose the skywheel as an activity. It feels very expensive for a 10 minute ride (4 rotations). The view of the beach and ocean was nice, but it is obstructed at times as your rotate. We noticed 2 other Ferris wheels in the...More
