Myrtle Beach clears the way for giant Ferris wheel

Jul 28, 2010 9:32:00 AM - thestate.com
A brightly lit, giant Ferris wheel visible for miles at night is coming to the South Carolina coast.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports city council gave final approval Tuesday to ordinances allowing the SkyWheel to be built on the oceanfront.

The council had to pass a rule allowing the 187-foot wheel to use city air space.

The wheel will have 42 glass-enclosed, temperature controlled gondolas where six to eight people can ride. Developers hope to have it spinning by next May.

Myrtle Beach City manager Tom Leath said on clear nights, people as far away as North Myrtle Beach will be able to see the wheel.
