Thank you SkyWheel Myrtle Beach for hosting my family and I so that we could experience it for ourselves. All opinions are my own (as always).
I am all about fun, active adventures when traveling (or actually, anytime) but sometimes it is nice to slow it down and take it all in. That’s exactly what we did an the Skywheel while visiting Myrtle Beach over Spring Break.
Located at the heart of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and standing 200-feet above sea level, the SkyWheel gives you a birds eye view of miles of the Myrtle Beach coast. The views are amazing!
Fun Fact: SkyWheel Myrtle Beach was the first observation wheel of its kind in the United States when it opened on May 20, 2011.
Soaring 20 stories above the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll enjoy the views whether you go during the day or night. If you are worried about the height, don’t be. My husband and son aren’t really fans of heights but they rode the SkyWheel with no problems and enjoyed it.
Because their gondolas are climate controlled, you can enjoy the SkyWheel no matter how cold or hot it is outside. While we were there it was cold out, at least for us Floridians, so I was relieved that we were comfortable the entire time.
Thinking about adding this to your Myrtle Beach Things To Do List? Great! You can get more information by clicking here. you can also avoid the lines and buy your tickets online here. They also have VIP Flights (with glass-bottom floor) and special packages available.
Tips for making the most out of your SkyWheel Myrtle Beach experience
- Park in the parking lots near by that are $5 for all day parking to save some money on parking
- Bring cash with you if you plan on eating because the restaurants there may charge you a credit card processing fee.
