The Myrtle Beach Sky Wheel
Opening the summer of 2011, the Myrtle Beach Sky Wheel is located on the new 1.2 mile-long Boardwalk and Promenade that runs from 14th Avenue to the 2nd Avenue Piers. The Sky Wheel reaches 18 stories (196 ft.) above the Atlantic Ocean. It has 42 glass- enclosed, temperature-controlled gondolas that seat up to six people. The attraction also includes a full-service Jimmy Buffet’s Landshark Bar & Grill, observation deck, gift shop and evening light show. And what’s great is that it’s open year-round!
The newest show at Myrtle Beach is Dolly Parton’s Pirates Voyage (replaces Dixie Stampede). The theme is very appropriate, for pirates such as Blackbeard and Stede Bonnet were notorous in the early history of the Carolinas. Filled with adventure for the entire family, the show features a five-course meal which can be enjoyed while watching acrobatics, live animals, swashbuckling pirates and buccaneers.
