Situated in the heart of Myrtle Beach, Family Kingdom Amusement Park has been operating since 1966. It features more than 35 thrill rides and family attractions, including a wooden roller coaster with sweeping Atlantic Ocean views.
Get your adrenalin pumping on the Sling Shot drop tower and ride on the O.D. Hopkins Log Flume, then experience a rotation on the Giant Wheel. Young visitors will love the circa-1920s classic carousel, Berry-Go-Round teacups, mini roller coaster and bumper boats.
Visiting during summer? Cool off at Splashes Oceanfront Water Park, which boasts high-speed water flumes, thrilling water slides and a lazy river. Magicians and balloon artists regularly perform throughout the park and there are plenty of eateries where you can grab classic amusement park snacks, such as hot dogs and hamburgers.
The Family Kingdom Amusement Park is a 10-minute drive from Myrtle Beach International Airport. Buses stop near the entrance and it’s just a short stroll from the beach.
