Ride the Waves at Myrtle Waves
Looking for a great way to beat the heat during your next Myrtle Beach vacation? We have the perfect solution! Just head to Myrtle Waves Water Park, conveniently located right across from Broadway at the Beach, where the whole family can cool off and have a blast!
South Carolina’s largest water park sits on just over 20 acres and is open mid-May to mid-September. Hit the raft rides, slides and family attractions with a one-day pass, or, if you plan to be a regular at the beach, secure a season, 2-park or 3-park pass.
For your family and friends who enjoy a smooth ride, stroll over to one of the relaxing raft rides. The Layzee River gives visitors of all ages a slow, steady 3mph tour around the entire park, so enjoy the view while taking your leisurely trip. The Layzee River is the perfect place to let your worries float away while you soak up a little sun. Want to move a little faster? Head to the Racin’ River where you hop on a skim board to ride the 250-foot speed river course. Jets propel riders in this river at a much faster pace than the leisurely layzee river.
Go get your splash on at one of the park’s slides which offer a variety of thrills for you to try solo or with a partner. The Arooba Tuba is easy to spot: Just look for the bright orange and yellow bowl-shaped funnel that will have you hurrying back for more. Head to the Riptide Rockets for a premium water slide rush or try the Thunderbolts slides for a smaller, tamer experience. Travel to Snake Mountain for a three-part adventure, or dare to explore the dark, foggy tunnels of the Night Flight. And did we mention that the Turbo Twisters will have you plummeting from 10 stories high at 50 feet per second? With over 10 different slide options to choose from, you are sure to get in plenty of wet n' wild fun!
Before you head to a ride with your little ones or with your friends, remember to check each ride’s height, size and weight safety restrictions. Also, keep an eye out for special events and promotions at the park.
This summer, Myrtle Waves is hosting "dive-in" movies throughout the season. Each Wednesday from mid-June through mid-August, guests are invited to the park at 4pm to enjoy a little splashing and water fun before the feature starts at 7pm. The movie selection will vary each week but will always be family friendly. Screenings will include favorites like Finding Nemo, Despicable Me 2, and Space Jam - to name a few. Admission to this event is just $11.99 / person and just a buck more if you want to munch on fresh popcorn during the movie.
If you’re traveling to Myrtle Waves Water Park with a group or for a birthday party, remember to check on your group ticket discount and to look into renting one of the shaded pavilions as your park headquarters. The park also has an outdoor picnic and grill area, making it easy to refuel during your adventures.
