Myrtle Beach will welcome its newest entertainment and dining venue in May 2011. The SkyWheel Myrtle Beach will team up with Jimmy Buffett’s Land Shark Bar & Grill and Land Shark Surfshack for an exciting new attraction on the oceanfront in downtown Myrtle Beach. The SkyWheel Myrtle Beach will be 200 feet tall overlooking the Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade with Land Shark Bar & Grill right next door serving up delicious food and cool cocktails.
When asked about these exciting new plans, David Busker, CEO of Koch Development, developer of SkyWheel Myrtle Beach said, “Land Shark Bar & Grill I the perfect dining complement to the SkyWheel experience and we look forward to bringing this concept to the oceanfront boardwalk in Myrtle Beach.”
The SkyWheel Myrtle Beach will be one of the best ways to see Myrtle Beach. Take a ride in one of its 42 climate controlled gondolas that seat up to six people. Each ride lasts about eight to twelve minutes and offers panoramic views of Downtown Myrtle Beach and beyond. A state-of-the-art lighting system will give riders an amazing light show each night after the sun sets for an unforgettable Myrtle Beach experience.
Grab a cocktail or a bite to eat before and after your ride Landshark Bar & Grill, owned by the people of Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. Landshark is a nod to classic “beach joints” that offer the best views, great food and cold drinks. Sit back with a Land Shark Lager and enjoy the sounds of your favorite beach songs and the waves crashing in the background. Situated just next to the 200 foot tall SkyWheel and Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, Land Shark Bar & Grill is the spot to soak in the ocean air. After you’ve satisfied your appetite (and hopefully your thirst), step into the Land Shark Surfshack for SkyWheel souvenirs and one-of-a-kind gifts.
“The beach location will be the perfect spot to take a ride on the new SkyWheel, grab a bite to eat, listen to some music and hang out for a while,” said Tamara Bladanza, Director of Marketing for Margaritaville Hospitality Group.
