The SkyWheel will soon come full circle — the iconic Myrtle Beach Ferris wheel is on its way back home.

SkyWheel Myrtle Beach announced Tuesday that the Ferris wheel was on its way back home, and the first pieces will arrive Wednesday morning. The homecoming will be broadcast live on the SkyWheel’s Facebook page.

“WHEELS UP! SkyWheel is on its way back home!” SkyWheel Myrtle Beach posted on Facebook. “Follow its journey back as the first pieces arrive in Myrtle Beach TOMORROW after a 1,200 mile journey from Kansas.”

The SkyWheel was dismantled in January to be refurbished for its 10th anniversary. The only part of it left in Myrtle Beach right now is the triangular support structure attached to the ground. Its reinstallation is expected to take two weeks.

The city of Myrtle Beach said drivers should expect detours and delays on the streets surrounding the SkyWheel, which is located just north of the Mr. Joe White Avenue and Ocean Boulevard intersection.

“The Myrtle Beach SkyWheel is returning!” the city wrote in a Facebook post. “Look for the first truck bringing back sections of the SkyWheel to arrive on Wednesday, April 14. A portion of Ocean Boulevard will be closed for unloading and reassembly of this oceanfront attraction through April 28.“
