The grand opening of SkyWheel Panama City Beach was held this past week by Koch Development Co. in Pier Park, an open-air shopping center in the PCB area.
“SkyWheel Panama City Beach is a modern marvel that sparks nostalgic memories and creates experiences for all,” said Matthew Stack, Koch Development Managing Director. “SkyWheel merges cutting-edge technology and engineering and good ole’ fashioned family fun for an experience guests will never forget.”
The SkyWheel now soars 200 feet above Panama City Beach and features 30 gondolas, as well as a VIP gondola. Each gondola is fully accessible and glass-enclosed and seats up to six adults. Riders can enjoy 360-degree views of the Emerald Coast, Pier Park and the Gulf of Mexico as they ride in the climate-controlled gondolas. Guests can even see the wheel light up at night with LED light shows.
“We are excited to work with Koch Development to bring SkyWheel Panama City Beach to members of the community and our visitors,” said Mike Denton, director of marketing and business development for Simon Properties at Pier Park. “SkyWheel is a world-class attraction for the Emerald Coast.”
SkyWheel Panama City Beach is open on a year-round basis. To learn more about this new attraction, visit SkyWheelPCB.com.
