What we chose to do
We saw the SkyWheel when we were driving into Myrtle Beach.
I was actually just Googling "Skywheel coupons" while we waited in line and this site popped up, so I booked two tickets immediately.
It was our anniversary, and my wife is afraid of heights. She decided to face her fear on our special day, and it went perfectly! She felt absolutely safe, and we even laughed some when we heard some teens screaming on another ride.
We drove to a parking deck nearby from the resort where we were staying.
Everyone was very friendly at the ride, and the girl who gave us our tickets knew exactly what we needed to do.
The reflection of the car lights and neon from the local businesses in a mirrored building was so cool! Also, we got to watch people being shot into the air on one of those slingshot rides, which was the only thing that went higher than us.
Finally, you can see so many more things that you might miss from the ground, like the lighting under Pier 14, the dancing LEDs at the Gay Dolphin, and the myriad flashes from phones up and down the strip.
We definitely recommend this! The cars are air conditioned, and the view is fantastic.
