Family Kingdom Amusement Park is a marvelous theme park overlooking the picturesque coast of Myrtle Beach. It has more than 35 rides, including everything from roller coasters and magic bikes to a log flume and a slingshot drop. Brave yourself for the dizzying heights and death-defying stunts in this thrilling park by the water.
Climb aboard the Twist‘n Shout steel roller coaster and rise to the top, appreciating the changing views of the ocean from your car, one of four traveling independently. For a more retro look, try the wooden Swamp Fox roller coaster, which has been a favorite here since 1966. Cool off with a splash in the log flume. The bumper cars offer a fun arena to crash into your friends’ vehicles without any real-world issues.
Take a break from the rides and enjoy a meal at the covered Picnic Pavilion, which is big enough for up to 100 people and is a perfect spot for large birthday and family celebrations.
On a sunny day, head to Splashes Oceanfront Water Park, next to the main park. Let yourself be transported by the Lazy River, meandering between waterfalls. Zoom down the speed slides and follow the bends of the water flumes. The water park also has an area for little children.
Choose between an all-day ticket that incorporates unlimited rides and a system of tickets for individual rides. Opening times vary depending on the day and period of the year.
Family Kingdom Amusement Park is beside the sandy coastline of Myrtle Beach. It stands at the southern end of the Myrtle Beach strand, about a 12-minute walk from the Second Avenue Pier. Ride a bus to a stop beside the park. While in this part of the city, see nearby landmarks such as Withers Swash, the Whispering Pines golf course and Jungle Lagoon Miniature Golf.
