We like to ride the SkyWheel every year. Great views of the beach and the ride was a nice length. The air-conditioned cars are a nice touch.

Think it is pretty to look at at night, the charge to ride it is a little ridicules, and a lot of the lights were out on it.

We felt the price was expensive especially for children. Staff was very friendly! Very clean! Our children enjoyed it so it was worth it!

This was a must on our to do list. We went up at night, and it was absolutely beautiful. It was a nice long ride, and great for taking scenic pictures. Would love to go again!!

This is definitely worth doing, even if you are deathly afraid of heights, as I am. The first time going up to the top is scary, but once there, and witness the view, you quickly forget about the height. This was my second time riding and I loved it just as much, if not more, as the first time

My husband would not give it five stars, because there is very little parking. We did find a lot that did charge with machines which was hard to figure out. Myself we went at a time that was threatening rain, so it was not crowded. What a way to see all around the beach, the boardwalk, and the streets. The... More
