Myrtle Beach SkyWheel Gets A New Look



When visiting Myrtle Beach, One of the attractions you can see for miles is the 187-feet tall SkyWheel!  The SkyWheel debued in May of 2011 with a million LED lights and 42 climate-controlled gondolas each capable of flying 2-6 people. There are also VIP gondola’s that have a glass floor which are capable of only flying 4. Over the past few weeks the SkyWheel has been closed at various times while getting a new paint job!
