FAQ

How much does a flight cost?

What companies partner with SkyWheel?

SkyWheel partners with many great companies including:
Myrtle Beach Vacation Rentals

Do you offer special rates for groups?

Yes! Group rates for parties of 15 or more are available. For details, call our group sales department at 843-626-3828 ext. 201.

How long is the flight?

A flight is three revolutions, so it’s usually about 8-10 minutes in total.

Do you allow pets?

We love all of our four legged friends, but unfortunately we only allow service animals on board.

Are infants welcome on flights?

Certainly! In fact, children age 2 and under fly for free.

What are the hours of operation?

Our current hours of operation are Sunday – Saturday 11 a.m. until 12 a.m. Unless, of course, there is inclement weather or lightning, in which we would have to close temporarily. Your safety is our top priority! Please email us at info@skywheel.com for more information.

What is a VIP flight?

It is the ULTIMATE First Class experience! Skip the line and take flight in our VIP gondola with glass floors, leather seats, a double flight, a VIP lanyard, a souvenir bag, a bottle of ice cold water with a Koozie all for only $50 for adults. Special children VIP packages are available as well for $35 (with the purchase of an adult VIP). The children’s package includes a souvenir bag, a bottle of ice cold water, a coloring page with crayons and a SkyWheel Sticker!

Each VIP gondola will also receive one special souvenir photo to take home and remember your first class flight!

Reservations are recommended but not required. For more information, email reservations@skywheel.com.

How many people can fit in a gondola at one time?

Anywhere from 2-6 people can fly at one time. For the VIP flight, up to 4 can fly. And don’t worry – if there are just a few of you, no strangers will be put in with you. Each flight is your own private experience!

Where is the best place to park?

If you’d like the easiest access to the SkyWheel, there is a paid parking lot right next door. Unfortunately, we don’t own this lot so we can’t control the prices. If you’re just making a quick visit and have a handful of change, there are some metered spots all along Ocean Boulevard to grab.

Your nightly light show sounds awesome!

That’s not a question and yes, it is! Each night around dusk, the SkyWheel lights up the sky! You can see the display up and down the boardwalk. You’ll want a camera for this one!
