The SkyWheel started as a stand-alone iconic attraction in May 2011 at Myrtle Beach. The SkyWheel is not a carnival ride, but a modern, safe observation wheel towering almost 200 feet in the air. It has fully enclosed gondolas offering a safe and secure flight with glass windows and doors for optimal views and photography. The gondolas are heated and cooled allowing for year-round operation in any type of weather.
For me, the SkyWheel was a striking element while shooting sunsets at Myrtle Beach.
