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.

In the past we have enjoyed the London Eye and the Vegas High Roller so thought we would give the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel a go. Like the others, the Skywheel's pods are also completely enclosed so an enjoyable ride is not weather dependent. Nice aerial views of the strand. It is located on the boardwalk next to the Landshark grill.

worth the experience.. def like the night time better with the lights and watching all the people. As we were leaving though they were closing and people were still waiting in line .. They don't keep their website posted on correct time. something they should probably correct, because there were some unhappy people.

We loved the view that you get from the top. It was roomy enough for our family of 4. Would definitely go on again the next time we come.

Very nice way to see the beach and surrounding. Go early in the day when it's cooler outside. Although the units are individually air conditioned it's a lot cooler in the morning.

You get three rounds of the wheel, the view is lovely. I'm not sure it is worth the $14 fee though. You can get $1.00 off coupons out of the tourist coupon books.

We finally decided to ride the giant Ferris wheel! It is so large inside and comfortable. Completely enclosed and even has a panic button inside if you need to get done!! Air conditioned inside in the summer!! Great views!! Really enjoyed it!!

My son loves Ferris wheels so what better than the sky wheel. The view is great from way up and you get a fairly lengthily ride for what you pay for. There are also options for longer rides.

This thing scares the crap out of me every time! My son loves it so we go at least once when we visit Myrtle Beach. Amazing ocean views from the top. Well worth it.
