Myrtle Beach City Council has approved the building of a sky wheel on the oceanfront of the beach. It might seem like the fair all year long on the boardwalk of Myrtle Beach. That’s because Myrtle Beach City Council has given the okay for a giant, 187-foot Ferris wheel to be placed right on the city’s oceanfront.
The city had to pass an ordinance for the wheel to use the air space in the city. The wheel will be seen from miles away, possibly as far as North Myrtle Beach on a clear night. There will be 42 glass-enclosed, temperature controlled gondolas on the Ferris wheel. The gondolas will be big enough for six to eight people to ride in.
The Sun News of Myrtle Beach says developers hope to have the wheel up by next May.
