The beach is a great place to get wet, but the Grand Strand has a lot more to offer than just miles and miles of sand and surf! Here are the four greatest water parks on the Grand Strand for thrill seeking vacationers looking to make a splash this summer!

Shark Wake Aqua Park

Shark Wake Park’s inflatable, floating Aqua Park is the East Coast’s largest Wibit™ park! This recent attraction is located in the North Myrtle Beach Sports Complex, and is a must-do experience for visitors to the Grand Strand. The Aqua Park covers an acre of water, and can hold up to 120 people per hour, with rates starting at $20 for a 45 minute single session, per person.

Run, jump, and climb your way through obstacles and be prepared to get wet in the process! There a four levels that range from easy (suitable for beginners) to extremely challenging (requiring some skill and prior-experience). Sessions can be booked online, but some rules apply. You have to be at least seven years old, 45” tall, and a good swimmer! You also have to sign a waver with an ID, and arrive early for instructions.

Myrtle Waves

As South Carolina’s largest water park, Myrtle Waves has over 30 water slides and attractions, and 1.2 million gallons of water! Favorites include the Rockin’ Ray, the 20-foot long Super Chute, and the high-intensity Turbo Twisters, three completely enclosed dark slides will send you spiraling down at an exhilarating 50 feet per second. There are also several options for smaller children, including the Lazy River, Bubble Bay, and Saturation Station. Tickets can be purchased online or at the park.

Wild Water and Wheels

Just south of Myrtle Beach in Surfside, you’ll find Wild Water and Wheels, sister park to Myrtle Waves. More than a water park, attractions include speed slides, tube slides, mat slides, pools, mini golf, and a go-cart racetrack. You can even rent a private cabana for your visit! On your way out, stop by Hudson’s Flea Market next door, a vast, covered open-air market and Grand Strand favorite since 1975.

Splashes/Family Kingdom

Splashes is Myrtle Beach’s only oceanfront water park. Splash your way into fun on speed slides and water flumes, or relax on the Lazy River. There is also a Children’s Area for little ones. Splashes is part of Family Kingdom amusement park, a favorite destination for locals and vacationers alike. Visitors can purchase an unlimited ride wristband to the water park, or opt for a Combo Pass, which includes all day unlimited ride wristbands for both parks. Each wristband is valid any one day during the 2018 season.
