If you’re from the warm and sunny South, even the balmy weather of Myrtle Beach’s winter and spring off-season can seem a bit too brisk for frolicking along the oceanfront and basking in the cool winter sun. Well, this is exactly why man invented the indoor water park! Myrtle Beach, South Carolina has several of these clever attractions that mix the warmth and controlled experience of an inside environment with the splashing, screaming, and chaos of waterslides, wave pools, and the like.



What is an Indoor Water Park?


The indoor water parks Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand offer its guests are generally part of some larger structure, whether it’s a hotel or an amusement park. What that means to you is that there’s often someone from the other ‘area’ of the business around waiting to pamper you if you should need something. Particularly at the resorts, the attendants who watch over the water parks are happy to go and bring you an appetizer from one of the on-site fine dining restaurants, for example. And that’s exactly what you can expect here at Coral Beach Resort!



Why A Waterpark Hotel?


So what’s the best thing about mixing hotels with a water park? Well, the experience of being able to enjoy a unique, one-of-a-kind experience just steps from your hotel room is a convenience in itself! Where else in the world Coral Beach Resort waterpark lazy rivercan you stay in a multi-room suite with a kitchenette, a full bath, a hot tub, killer room service, a view of the sunrise over the Atlantic, three or four-star onsite restaurants and water slides? Certainly, there are those hotels that have typical water features like pools and lazy rivers — but when it comes to hotel-water parks, Coral Beach Resort does it like no one else does. 



Why Indoor Pool Facilities?


At a typical off-season fall or spring trip to one of it’s the area’s waterparks, the weather in Myrtle Beach will probably be drifting around 65 degrees Fahrenheit — quite pleasant if you’re from Philadelphia or Seattle, but not so hot if you’re visiting from Phoenix or Tampa Bay. But, it’ll be around 75 degrees at the inside waterpark pool facility — perfect to enjoy some indoor fun. At the same time, if you’re from the cold northern climes and you come to the Grand Strand during the hottest part of summer, you’ll find that the temperature is still a pleasant 75 degrees indoors – making it ideal for any season!  Myrtle Beach might be a bit intemperate at times out-of-doors, but there’s no reason it has to be that way inside, right?



Why Coral Beach Resort Waterpark?


So what goes on in one of these magnificent water parks? Wet ‘n wild fun for everyone, that’s what! Specifically at Coral Beach Resort Waterpark, there’s quite a bit that you can find. Water slides, an oceanfront lazy river, and Coral Beach Resort waterpark several pools, or course — but also water sports from volleyball to water polo, water squirters that you can use to get into a water brawl with the rest of your family, and much more. It’s a heck of a lot more than just a place to water slide . The indoor portion of our water facilities includes a spacious indoor pool and several indoor jacuzzis. You might find yourself shooting hoops in a sports-themed pool, lazing around in the slow and wide lazy river, or standing under an enormous shower of water gushing down from on high and splashing over the patio floor.



Whatever happens at your choice of the indoor water parks, Myrtle Beach will welcome you with open arms.
