Just a short drive from Seaside Vacations, visitors of all ages can experience a day of thrills, fun, and excitement in the heart of Myrtle Beach! Here are some of our favorite things to do at Myrtle Beach Family Kingdom.
Spend a Day at Myrtle Beach Family Kingdom
Take on the Rides
Family Kingdom features a variety of amusement park favorites, including the Tilt-A-Whirl, SlingShot, Scrambler, and small coasters, but is most famous for its signature rides. The thrilling O.D. Hopkins Log Flume is fun for riders of all ages, and the awesome Pistolero Roundup laser target shooting dark ride was the first of its kind produced by the American manufacturer Sally Corporation. The Giant Wheel features round open gondolas that take riders to a height of more than 100 feet and features stunning views of Myrtle Beach and the Atlantic. Be sure to stop by the park’s classic carousel, which was built in 1923 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company and features horses cast from the manufacturer’s original molds.
Visit Splashes Oceanfront Water Park
Located just across the street from the amusement park, Splashes is one of the best water parks in Myrtle Beach and offers a breathtaking backdrop of the Atlantic. A trip to this park is a great way to cool off on a hot summer day, where guests can enjoy water flumes, speed slides, a 425-foot long lazy river, fountains, waterfalls, kiddie pools, and more.
Enjoy Discount Prices
Family Kingdom Amusement Park is one of the few remaining admission-free parks in the United States and gives guests the chance to watch family and friends at no cost. The park also provides free entertainment like clowns, magicians, jugglers, and face painters. If you’re planning to take on the rides, visitors can purchase tickets for individual rides or pick up an all day unlimited ride wristband for either park. You’ll also get a discount when you buy a combo ticket to both parks! Feel free to enjoy the waterpark one day and the amusement park another day, or visit both on the same day for one low price.
