37. Myrtle Beach SkyWheel

Overview
Myrtle Beach SkyWheel

This 187-foot Ferris Wheel made its debut in Myrtle Beach in 2011, immediately lighting up the night sky with flashing bursts of color. The wheel is made up of 42 glass-windowed gondolas, each with temperature control that comes in handy during the summer and winter months. Each gondola holds up to six people, but they don’t require unrelated people to share a booth. The ride is typically made up of three revolutions, which usually lasts between eight and ten minutes, but there’s also a VIP option that takes place in a leather-seated gondola and lasts twice as long. You’ve seen it on tv, on postcards, from your hotel room – now it’s time to take a ride and see Myrtle Beach as you’ve never seen before.
