“Could be better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

Folks,
I actually visited this park in June of 2009,but I still remember it very well.
I noticed someone below in another post called it an "old school park"..and
thats probably pretty accurate.Its old school thats 4 sure.
Now, if you're visiting Myrtle Beach and you have teenage kids. This might
not be the park for you.Especially if this is one of your highlight attractions
during your stay. Other than the old wooden roller coaster, most of the other
rides seem to be centered toward younger visiters.
The good thing about the park,its convently located in the center of everything
and only about 200 YARDS from the beach.(rig.across the rd).
So sure, if you have never been to this park. Give it a try for a few hours.
Otherwise once you have, you're probably not in a hurry to go back IMO.

“Old school amusement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This park is reminiscent of the old mid-american carnivals with old school rides and tickets. When we went, it was so crowded that it was not even fun though. It was expensive and lines were long. I would recommend staying away from here at night or on the weekends.

“Lot's of family fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

An inexpensive place to enjoy rides by the beach. We had a lot of fun here. It is not Disney or Six Flags, but nicer than a county fair. You can come and go as you please to access better food with better non-amusement park pricing which is a great advantage to those with dietary preferences. Everything was clean and well organized for such a small theme park. We would certainly come again.

“Good old fashioned family fun.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Yes it is a bit expensive but they offer wristbands which allow you to ride ALL DAY...this is the way to go if your able. It is less busy during the day so the lines aren't long but it will be hotter. At night the place lights up beautifully and you can't ride or walk by and not want to go.

This place gives you a carnival feel. The Big Wheel is a must ride, it gives you an awesome view of Myrtle Beach from way up high. My suggestion would be to go during the day and get your wristbands and let the kids ride their "favorites". If it starts getting too hot, go cool off/swim/whatever then come back the same night and enjoy the park some more.

We found enough variety of rides to keep a 14 and 7yr old happy as well as mom and dad. They also have go-carts which cost extra. Unless you are extemely "nit-picky" this is a place for great family fun!
