If you are looking for a good small beach side amusement park then this is your place. This place is very oldschool with a wooden rollercoaster that still is just as exciting as riding as when i was a kid.

I waited until the first weekend after Labor Day to take the child. The staff was great! They let him ride as long as he wanted on each ride.

Great place to take the kids to burn off some energy. Rides are a little out dated but it's close and the kids loved it. Make sure to ask about local discounts on the tickets. Will drop cost literally in half!

We went there with young kids and it was right decision. Be sure that you should reserve 4-5 hours minimum to cover most of the rides. Also remember that to take whole day pass instead of per ride ticket because anyway you are going to spend more money than a day pass.

My son was put on a ride without being strapped in properly and almost fell out of the ride. When I confronted the teenage running the ride he just shrugged his shoulders and walked away.

Prices are a bit high for the rides when you buy individual tickets. The wristbands are not too bad, but you have to plan on being there for a while to get your money's worth. Fun place for the kids if you have nothing else to do.

It's a fun place for the whole family, especially for kids under 12. Cut the kids loose and let them have a good time.

One of the most family friendly attractions in Myrtle Beach. The rides are fun and the unlimited ride wrist band is reasonable. My kids particularly enjoy the roller coaster and log flume. The later has a tendency to get them wet, which they like.

Be sure to check the local coupon booklets for discounts on rides. It can be expensive, otherwise. We have been here a few times, and this last time there was a lot of riff raff around the park that were just causing trouble and not riding rides. Hope they up security to make it feel more safe.
