This was a nice way to unwind after a long day. You see the boardwalk but the view of the ocean is amazing. Pictures come out perfect---no glare and clear. Not your typical amusement park ferris wheel.

To enter the Skywheel is a bit pricy and the ride does not last very long. However, the capsules are all air conditioned and the view is breath taking. You can see all of Mrytle beach from the very top. It is great ride for...More

Ferris wheel reported to e the tallest on the east coast. Enclosed, air conditioned gondola, lovely view up and down the coast line.

Great view and ride is surprisingly long for the $15 per person. Not as scary as you'd think since you are completely enclosed. We went during the day but I'm sure it would be great at night

If you like ferris wheels, this one is nice. Provides a good view of beach and boardwalk area. Not cheap, but fun.

It was nice to take a break and ride in the enclosed air conditioned car and take in the sights around town and the ocean. But the price was $14.00 per person.

The inside is like a space ship! Great views of the city goes slow enough to enjoy all views. I love the emergency button in case of an emergency!

Each gondola can seat 6 people comfortably on the bench seating. Children and infants can sit on laps so you should be fine fitting everyone in one gondola, especially with the baby!

I think you might be able to fit three on each side (6 total) of the 'car'. I was only there with my four year old but it felt like there would have been enough room. So with baby on lap it probably would work.

I can ensure you that our gondolas get checked daily, any issues are addressed at the time they are discovered or the gondola is out for repair. However if an issue like this was to happen while riding we have a button you... More
