The Best Family Attractions in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach is a great place for a family vacation. Keeping the kid’s entertained while you’re visiting will be no problem. There are so many attractions that are perfect for families to enjoy.

Ripley’s Aquarium
The aquarium is the perfect place to spend a rainy day or to visit when you need a break from all the sun and heat. Your family will love seeing all the fish and other sea creatures. Hop on the moving walkway will take you beneath the reef where you can see sharks, turtles, and other sea animals swim right by or pet a stingray at Friendship Flats. Your family will have endless fun at Ripley’s Aquarium.

Your family will love fighting dragons and casting spells to finish their quest and defend the realm. You’ll get a wand that is yours to keep and saves your progress, so you can keep returning for more fun. No quest is the same; everyone will have fun seeing where everyone’s journey takes them. Race to see who can become Master of the Realm first! MagiQuest is located at Broadway at the Beach. 

Have some fun with science at WonderWorks. There are many different activities that the whole family will have fun with. Some of their exhibits include Hurricane Shack, where you can experience a category one hurricane; the Tesla Coil allows you to become a human lightening rob where you can touch 100,000 volts of electricity. The 360 Bikes allow you to pedal your way around a circle; generate enough power to loop over the top.

Myrtle Waves Water Park
Take a break from the beach and sand and spend a day splashing around Myrtle Waves. With everything from a wave pool, lazy river, and plenty of waterslides it’ll be sure to entertain your family all day long. Spiral down at 50 feet per second of the Turbo Twisters or soak up the sun while floating down the LayZee River. Toddlers will love splashing around Bubble Bay. There are plenty of food options to choose from along with private cabanas that you can rent. Myrtle Waves has all the attractions to keep your whole family busy having fun.

Family Kingdom
Family Kingdom is the beach’s only waterfront amusement park! There are numerous rides for kids of all ages. See the ocean as you ride the Swamp Fox Roller Coaster or spin around on the Tilt-A-Whirl. Children will love the old-fashioned Carousel and driving along on the Antique Cars. The best part of Family Kingdom, there is no admission fee. You pay to ride, not to enter the park. They offer ride all day wristbands or you can buy tickets if you are only staying a few hours.

These attractions aren’t just great for kids, but activities that the whole family will have fun enjoying. You’re sure to have some family fun on your next Myrtle Beach vacation.
