“We’re here at the Myrtle Beach Skywheel, downtown Myrtle Beach at 11:10, North Ocean Blvd., on the beautiful boardwalk and promenade. This is the only observation wheel of its kind in the United States. It stretches over 200 feet over the Atlantic Ocean, and it’s perfect for taking photos and videos. There are 42 climate-controlled glass gondolas. The whole family’s going to enjoy it. We are the most affordable attraction on the Grand Strand, and we want everyone to come down and enjoy a flight on the Skywheel. So come on, let’s check it out now.”

The Skywheel is a great new addition to the Myrtle Beach Blvd. We want to take you on an adventure aboard the Myrtle Beach Skywheel. What amazing views you are about to see! Before you climb aboard, how about some fun facts about Skywheel? This is the largest wheel east of the Mississippi River, standing at 200 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. Once you are on board, your ride will last between eight to twelve minutes. The Skywheel is made up of gondolas, which hold up to six passengers each. These gondolas are made up of non-reflective glass on all sides; this will let you take the best possible pictures or videos for your vacation memories. The really cool thing is that there is even a VIP gondola. You will have leather bucket seating, and to make the view even more amazing, the floor is glass too.

The Skywheel offers two completely different adventures – one by day, and the other by night. The daytime offers amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean, and the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, while the wheel comes alive with one million LED lights at night.

“We just did the Skywheel. It was amazing!”

“It was really fun!”

“It was so much fun.”

“Certainly the highlight of our trip, no pun intended.”

“I think it’s well worth it.”

“There’s nothing scary about it. Just a very relaxed ride.”

“It was amazing how smooth it was.”

Time to experience a piece of what the Skywheel has first-hand. Climb aboard. Look at the spacious interiors of the gondola. Everyone will have a great view – no need to worry about that! There are two comfortable benches that are spacious enough for up to six guests. Don’t worry about the weather being too hot. These gondolas have air conditioning, which will make those hot summer days much cooler. This is such a smooth ride as you go up, and your view is ever changing, looking out as far as you can see over the Atlantic Ocean. What an awesome view, and comfortable ride! Are you ready for your Skywheel adventure?

As the sun is setting, the Skywheel is taking on an entirely new style. AS the LED lights begin appearing, it is now time to experience the Skywheel at night. It seems completely different, as the night sky has so many stars out over the Atlantic Ocean. So many cool things to point out and take some great pictures of to take home and show your friends. So make sure to add the Myrtle Beach Skywheel to your list of vacation activities. You won’t be sorry you did. For more information about Skywheel, visit
