About Myrtle Beach Skywheel

The centerpiece of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel offers soaring panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. When it opened in 2011, it forever changed the downtown Myrtle Beach skyline. Standing 200 feet above the ocean, the SkyWheel features 42 climate-controlled, enclosed gondolas, which seat up to 6 passengers.

The wheel was the first of its kind in the United States and the largest wheel of any kind in the U.S. when it was constructed in 2011. Non-reflective glass on the gondolas makes the SkyWheel an ideal spot to take photos of the beach and the surrounding area. Rides are $16 for ages 12 and up and $12 for ages 3-11.

VIP flights are $50. VIP flights allow riders to skip the line and hop into a special gondola with glass floors and leather seats. VIP riders enjoy a double ride and get a free t-shirt and lanyard. The VIP gondola seats 4 people.

Although the rest of the gondolas can seat up to 6 people, separate parties will not be combined. That means you won’t get stuck riding with strangers! In addition to the rides, the SkyWheel lights up the beach with a nightly light show that features more than 1 million LED lights. The shows change with the seasons, and the SkyWheel gets decked out for the holidays with red bows and green garland. Attached to the SkyWheel are the Landshark Bar & Grill, a Jimmy Buffet eatery serving up burgers, sandwiches, salads, and more, along with cold drinks. Along the Boardwalk, you’ll find plenty of food and drink options, plus free concerts and entertainment during the summer months.
