The Myrtle Beach SkyWheel has returned to the Grand Strand. Since January, the iconic SkyWheel has undergone a series of repairs and refurbishments.
The SkyWheel is a popular tourist attraction, where people can board a private, fully enclosed gondola to observe the city of Myrtle Beach. Each gondola is heated or cooled depending on the time of year, making it a great year-round attraction. This May marks the 10th anniversary of the SkyWheel’s erection, which is expected to bring a large celebration to the Grand Strand.
The recent updates to the SkyWheel include a new light show that guests can enjoy on their ride around the wheel.
In order to properly reassemble the structure, parts of Ocean Boulevard will be closed for the remainder of April.
While a reopening date has yet to be determined, officials should be making an announcement in the coming weeks on when visitors can enjoy the SkyWheel again.
