MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – A popular oceanfront attraction is getting closer to reopening in Myrtle Beach.

A Wednesday photo post on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel’s Facebook shows the attraction with more than half of its 42 gondolas “hanging back at their home.”

By around 8 p.m., the page shared another update showing all 42 gondolas back home on the SkyWheel.

As the sun sets this evening, a familiar sight is back on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. All 42 SkyWheel gondolas are back home!

A Grand Strand staple enjoyed by tourists and locals alike, crews began dismantling the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel in January for upgrades and improvements to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The revamp to the wheel and gondolas includes a new light show.
