SkyWheel night ride photos, Myrtle Beach fun stuff to do with kids

Posted By ShoutCarolina,Date: 10.19.2011

SkyWheel delivers! Myrtle Beach’s newest downtown attraction is indeed worth the money, and then some. Lets have fun on SkyWheel
SkyWheel offers breathtaking views from 200 feet up in the air of the Atlantic Ocean, the boardwalk and pier, and all of downtown attractions in an air-conditioned, very comfortable, glass-enclosed gondola.

The ride lasts about 12 minutes and circles you 5 times. Tickets are $12 adults and $10 children 3-11 (seniors and military get a $2 off discount). You can use a $2 off coupon when you ride before 5PM.

SkyWheel is every day from 11AM till midnight (weather permitting).

The view is spectacular anytime of the day. Early afternoon you enjoy a beautiful ocean vista and a chance to spot dolphins swimming freely. Later on you get the best seat in town for amazing sunset images. And at night millions of LED lights put on a vibrant colors show.

We decided to go at night. When we got there (around 8PM) we had a very short wait to board our gondola.

This feels cozy…I’m so excited to go way up in the air!

Here’s a taste of how it feels inside. I admit the video doesn’t do the ride enough justice, it’s much better in real life.

SkyWheel is now officially the coolest “kid” in town. I can’t wait to go back at sunset. Stay tuned.
