Myrtle Beach SkyWheel
One of Myrtle Beach’s newest and most photographed attractions is the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel. Located just a few miles from Crown Reef, this giant 187-foot tall Ferris wheel sits right off of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. Passengers sit in comfortable climate-controlled gondolas for the duration of the ride, which lasts about 8 to 10 minutes. Anywhere from two to six people can fit in each gondola and each family or group will be placed together. The ride offers magnificent views of the ocean, the pier and the Boardwalk. Lighting up at night, the SkyWheel is a beautiful site when the Myrtle Beach sun goes down.
