Wild times on the water

Let a parasail carry you 300 feet in the air.

For those looking to keep their wet and wild adventures on land, we’ve got you covered. Shark Wake Park takes the concept of a water park to the extreme. This combination Wake Park and Aqua Park is a one-of-a-kind experience. Up for a new challenge? Learn to wakeboard using their advanced pulley system known as “cable wakeboarding.” Want to push yourself even more? Head to their inflatable obstacle course to see how far you can go.

Feed your need for speed

For a more “traditional” water park experience, head over to Wild Water & Wheels.

For a more “traditional” water park experience, head over to Wild Water & Wheels—home to slides, rides and tides. Don’t mistake traditional for dull. Slides like the White Water Express and the Dark Hole will have you clinging to your inner tube. And the body-only slides, like the Triple Dip and the Side Winder, are designed for speed and will splash you every which way.

To really make your heart race, try the park’s Free Fall Cliff Dive, an almost 90-degree plummet at 45 MPH! Thrill seekers of all ages will love the variety of bumper car and go-kart race tracks for every skill level. Strap the whole family in for a full day of fun!

Start your engines!

Broadway Grand Prix offers even more race track thrills. Start your engines and make your way through seven go-kart tracks, like the twists and tight turns of the Slick Track. You can really put the pedal to the metal on the Grand Prix Pro Track, the fastest one in the park. If you need a break from the racing, try scaling the Rock Wall or soar through the air riding their Sky Coaster.

Extreme fun high in the sky

Push your limits here and feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment!

True adventurers looking for a great time in the great outdoors need look no further than Go Ape. With 20 obstacles and two zip lines, their Treetop Journey experience is an excellent choice for first timers on a high-ropes course. The Treetop Adventure experience is even more immersive and challenging. You can really push your limits here and feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment—especially if you have any fear of heights.

Helicopter Adventures literally lets you rise above it all to experience Myrtle Beach like never before. Your pilot will take you for a ride over the water with breathtaking views of Myrtle Beach’s expansive coastline. You can choose an extended tour that goes as far as 42 miles!

Myrtle Beach Thrill Rides is an absolute must for extreme thrill seekers. The Skyscraper rockets you 170 feet up at 60 MPH, spinning you and a friend in a gigantic circle. If you’re brave enough, hop aboard the Sling Shot, which launches you300 feet into the air at 100 MPH. (For an extra challenge, you and your partner on the ride can attempt to spin as you hurdle towards the sky.) Don’t forget about the Air Strike, which can reach a max force of 3.6Gs as it spins you around with your legs hanging off the ride.
