The Skywheel is a great new edition to the Myrtle Beach Boulevard. We want to take you on an adventure aboard the Myrtle Beach Skywheel. What amazing views you are about to see. Before we climb aboard, how about some fun facts about Skywheel. This is the largest wheel east of the Mississippi River standing at 200 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. Once you are on board your ride will last between 8 to 12 minutes. The Skywheel is made up of gondolas, which hold up to 6 passengers each. These gondolas are made up of non-reflective glass on all sides. This will let you take the best possible pictures or videos for your vacation memories. The really cool thing is that there is even a VIP gondola. You will have leather bucket seating, and to make the view even more amazing, the floor is glass too. The Skywheel offers two completely different adventures. One by day and the other by night. The daytime offers amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, while the wheel comes alive with one million LED lights at night. Time to experience a piece of what the Skywheel has first hand. Climb aboard. Look at the spacious interiors of the gondola. Everyone will have a great view, no need to worry about that. There are two comfortable benches that are spacious enough for up to 6 guests. Don’t worry about the weather being too hot; these gondolas have air conditioning, which will make those hot summer days much cooler. This is such a smooth ride as you go up and your view is ever changing. Looking out as far as you can see over the Atlantic Ocean. As you look down the boulevard south, you can see the many resorts and attractions here in Myrtle Beach. Once you look north, it seems like the hotels line the coast for mile and miles. What an awesome view and comfortable ride, are you ready for your Skywheel adventure? As the sun is setting, the Skywheel is taking on an entire new style. As the LED lights begin appearing, it is now time to experience the Skywheel at night. First you may want to stand back along the boardwalk and watch the light show, which is truly spectacular and fun. It is time to climb aboard your gondola for the night adventure. It seems completely different as the night sky has so many stars out over the Atlantic Ocean. As you look south down the boulevard the Grand Strand is electric with lights and activity. So many cool things to point out and take some great pictures of to take home and show your friends. So make sure to add the Myrtle Beach Skywheel to your list of vacation activities, you won’t be sorry you did. For more information about the Skywheel, visit www.myrtlebeachskywheel.com.
