The centerpiece of the Boardwalk, the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel offers soaring panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Standing 200 feet above the ocean, the SkyWheel features 42 climate-controlled, enclosed gondolas, which seat up to 6 passengers. Non-reflective glass on the gondolas makes the SkyWheel an ideal spot to take photos of the beach and the surrounding area.
