This is a rendering of what the SkyWheel Myrtle Beach will look like.
Unless you live under a rock you know that Myrtle Beach will welcome a brand new attraction, SkyWheel Myrtle Beach, in May 2011. What you may not know are some of the fun facts that make the SkyWheel such a big deal.
Here’s our list of fun facts about SkyWheel Myrtle Beach:
• The R60 Giant Wheel is designed by Ronald Bussink Professional Rides in Switzerland.

• Each ride will last approximately eight to twelve minutes.
• 42 Swiss-manufactured, climate-controlled, enclosed gondolas are attached to the wheel.
