The SkyWheel isn’t the only way to go sky-high! The SkyTrail at SkyWheel Panama City Beach is a 45-foot-tall aerial attraction designed and engineered especially for safety and fun!

Climb your way up and across 20 different elements, such as suspended bridges, cargo nets, rope ladders, and more. Each guest is fitted with a full-body harness and redundant sling line inserted into the overhead track by our fully trained ride operators. This system allows you to be connected at all times. The SkyTrail features different levels for different ages and skills, so you can experience an adventurous rush or just take it slow and steady – the choice is yours! This activity combines family and fun all in one!

If the SkyTrail isn’t enough to feed your adrenaline need, hop on the SkyRail at SkyWheel Panama City Beach, a zip line that soars through the air from 45 feet high! The SkyRail is not required, but is an option with the SkyTrail ticket. Tickets to the SkyTrail with the SkyRail option are $15.99 each. SkyTykes tickets are $5.99 each.


If you’re not quite ready for the adventure of the SkyTrail, that’s ok. We also offer SkyTykes for our younger guests under 48 inches tall. Tykes can still embark on their own adventurous journey at a pleasant and comfortable height similar to the experience on the SkyTrail. The platforms are less than 3 feet from the ground; a guardian must be present to travel alongside the child to guide them through the different elements.
