Myrtle Beach SkyWheel Update

The SkyWheel is one of Myrtle Beach’s new attractions this year and its grand opening will be Friday, May 20, 2011. The SkyWheel consist of 42 gondolas that will go around as the wheel turns. This allows people to see as far north as the South/North Carolina boarder and as far south as the Inlet. Of the 42 gondolas, one will be a V.I.P. with leather seats and a glass bottom. It will also rotate around six times while the regular will go around three times. The admission will be $12 for adults, $8 for ages 3-11, military, and 55 and older, and those 2 and younger will get on free. The SkyWheel attraction will be fitted with 1 million LED light bulbs for after dark display and special effects will kick in for a full-blown light show once or twice a night. So come on out this Friday night and support the opening of a great attraction! The SkyWheel is located at 1101 N. Ocean Blvd., Myrtle Beach and the hours of operation will be 10 a.m. until 2 a.m.
