Located along North Ocean Boulevard at Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade, Myrtle Beach SkyWheel offers an exciting experience for families, couples and groups alike. The 187-foot ferris wheel is made up of 42 glass-windowed, temperature-controlled gondolas that each take up to six guests at a time around for three revolutions. The ride lights up at night for an even more magical experience.
More Information on Myrtle
First, man flew to the moon and then, in 2011, they invented the SkyWheel – the first observation wheel of its kind in the United States. Want a better perspective? The Myrtle Beach SkyWheel is 200-feet above sea level. Take a flight overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk in one of our 42 climate controlled and fully enclosed gondolas.
Situated as a centerpiece of the 1.2 mile-long Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade, the SkyWheel is surrounded by some tasty eats, great shopping and the pristine sands of the Atlantic. When you’re done having your breath taken away by the view from your flight, browse the LandShark SurfShack and then grab a bite at the LandShark Bar & Grill. The ride lasts approximately 8-12 minutes with 3 rotations of the wheel. Children under the age of 2 get to ride free with an Angel Ticket. Must visit the box office upon arrival to receive angel ticket.
