If your headed to or already in Myrtle Beach here’s something you should add to your to-do list: The SkyWheel. All 4 of us piled into a gondola and went high above Myrtle Beach. We went at night to get the optimum feel with the lights and it was breathtaking. I’ll admit it was a bit scary at the top, but your enclosed in an air conditioned unit that’s pretty big space wise. We opted for the one that has a bottom. If your on the brave side then you should try out the glass bottom gondola! You could see the lights and fun of Myrtle Beach along with miles and miles of ocean. It was a great, relaxing, yet exhilarating experience and I’d definitely do it again!
How Long is the Flight?
A flight is three revolutions, so it’s usually about 8-10 minutes in total.
Do you Allow Pets?
We love all of our four legged friends, but unfortunately we only allow service animals on board.
Are infants Welcome on Flights?
Certainly! In fact, children age 2 and under fly for free.
How Many People Fit in the Gondola At A Time?
Anywhere from 2-6 people can fly at one time. For the VIP flight, up to 4 can fly. And don’t worry – if there are just a few of you, no strangers will be put in with you. Each flight is your own private experience!
Where is the best place to park?
If you’d like the easiest access to the SkyWheel, there is a paid parking lot right next door. Unfortunately, we don’t own this lot so we can’t control the prices. If you’re just making a quick visit and have a handful of change, there are some metered spots all along Ocean Boulevard to grab.
FYI-Look around and you will find cheaper places with a little bit of a walk!
