A trip to Myrtle Beach isn’t complete until you take a ride on the giant SkyWheel, located right off the boardwalk. Whether you take a ride during the day to see the gorgeous view of the ocean, beach, and city or at night for the million LED light show, it is sure to be an experience you’ll never forget.
We’ve been on many ferris wheels in the past but none that can come close to comparing to the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel. The SkyWheel is enormous and the view from the top is stunning! We loved looking in all directions from our gondola – there was so much to see!
I couldn’t stop staring at the ocean and beach while my kids were memorized by the bungee jumpers across the street!
The SkyWheel gondolas accommodate up to 6 people, so the whole family was able to sit together in the air conditioned environment. It is secure with no worries of little ones falling out too. It is wheel chair accessible if you need that too. I like that it is a fun outing that people of all ages can enjoy together.I love seeing places from different perspectives. When we road the Banana Boat, we were able to see Myrtle Beach and our hotel from the ocean’s point of view – that was really cool. While on the SkyWheel, we got a bird’s eye view of Myrtle Beach.
We had a great time together and took a ton of pictures – it is a great photo opp time for sure with big smiles from everyone. I debated whether to take the ride in the day time or night because both offer unique experiences and amazing views. At night, the SkyWheel is lit up with over 1 million LED lights! It’s a stunning sight to see from the street up, I can only imagine what it looks like from the gondola! We are going to ride it at night next time!
If you want the ultimate experience, you can get the VIP treatment and ride the gondola with GLASS floors! It’s pretty pricy at $50/person but great for a special date night as it is only for 2 people.
Be sure to add the SkyWheel to your itinerary on your next trip to Myrtle Beach! You’ll love seeing Myrtle Beach at great heights!
