A Magic Carpet Ride in Myrtle Beach

Many New Exciting Things to See and Do in Myrtle Beach

Have you ever thought of taking an air-conditioned ride 200 feet in the air? After you've experienced Myrtle Beach's newest attraction, The SkyWheel, you'll be able to say you've taken a "Southern Magic Carpet Ride." It's truly amazing! The SkyWheel will give you a full panoramic view of our fantastic oceanside city while you enjoy a comfortable ride with your family and friends.

You'll spend your orbits in one of 42 climate-controlled, enclosed gondolas - manufactured in Switzerland with safety and comfort in mind. At its apex, you'll be 200 feet above sea level and able to see up to 25 miles of ocean, beaches and surroundings. You can watch the people walking and having fun on our bustling Ocean Boulevard, on the beach, and even see one of Myrtle Beach's favorite destinations - Broadway at the Beach.

It's even more spectacular at nght! While riding a gondola after dark, you'll experience an awesome LED light show while you view the city's glittering nightlife. Each spacious gondola has room for up to six passengers and is like riding in your own private sky carriage.

Just imagine taking a break from your day of fun on the beach, relaxing in one of these cool SkyWheel gondolas and seeing so many wonderful sights. After your ride, visit the Landshark Bar & Grill located right beside the SkyWheel. Enjoy a frosty beverage and a burger, stroll the Boardwalk and check out all the other fun attractions that you saw while on the Wheel.

Defy gravity on The Slingshot right across the street from the SkyWheel. Enjoy a spooky time at Ripley's Haunted Adventure or be totally amazed at Ripley's Believe It or Not! Nearby you'll find lots of beachwear shops, arcades and more... plenty of places to find that perfect souvenir for a fantastic day or night at the beach.
