Visiting the beach is always a great way to get some sun and splash in the surf! But did you know the Myrtle Beach area also has a variety of waterparks, perfect for both the young and young at heart? Whether you crave the thrills of the high and fast slides, or the slow drift down a lazy river, our waterparks have something to suit everybody!

Myrtle Waves

Need a break from the salt and sand? Spend a day at Myrtle Waves, the largest water park in South Carolina! Relax on the Lazy River, shoot down the Riptide Rockets, or ride the surf in the Ocean in Motion Wave Pool. You can even catch some rays on one of the hundreds of free lounge chairs while you watch the little ones splash around at Bubble Bay, a play area with safe depths of only 6-18 inches, and the Saturation Station. Older kids will enjoy the deep vertical drops of the Rockin’ Ray, or the more mellow curves of Snake Mountain. The thrill seekers in your family will not want to miss the Riptide Rockets and Tsunami. When you’ve had your fill of water slides drift along the Racin’ River or enjoy a swim in the wave pool. No need to worry about safety! You can relax and let the kids have fun with award-winning lifeguards on duty.

Splashes Oceanfront Water Park

Enjoy Myrtle Beach’s only oceanfront water park, Splashes, located adjacent to Family Kingdom Amusement Park on Ocean Boulevard. Older kids can enjoy the thrill of the slides and water flumes, while younger children can enjoy the splash pools with two refreshing rain trees, and eight kiddie area slides. The daredevils in your crew will love the Splashes Speed Slides. With over a 100-foot drop, these wet and wild slides are bound to get the adrenalin pumping! Visitors can pay per ride or purchase a Family Kingdom Water Park All Day Unlimited Ride Wristband.

Wild Water and Wheels

With over 33 exciting rides, Wild Water and Wheels is a 16-acre waterpark in nearby Surfside Beach that includes thrills for kids and adults of all ages. Enjoy faster slides such as the Side Winder, Triple Dip, and Serpentine, wipe out in the Wipe Out Wave Pool, or float gently along the Lazy River. If you’re brave, check out the Dark Hole, which features an enclosed trip through twisty tunnels! Other fun activities include go-carts, mini golf and bumper boats.
