A visit to Myrtle Beach is not complete without a visit to the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel. Located on the boardwalk, the SkyWheel is a giant Ferris wheel with enclosed air-conditioned gondolas. Opened in 2011, the SkyWheel has become an icon of the Myrtle Beach skyline. With unsurpassed views and comfortable seats, a trip on the SkyWheel is perfect for the whole family. Each ride goes around three times and lasts about 10 to 12 minutes. A family of six or less can fit in one gondola. Bring your camera to get amazing pictures through the clear glass enclosures and in the evenings, be sure to stick around to see the spectacular light show as the SkyWheel fills the Myrtle Beach night sky with bursts of colors!See more »
