Thrill seekers, your destination search has come to fruition. One of the many things to do in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Family Kingdom Amusement Park. Operating on roughly thirteen-acres, Family Kingdom Amusement Park has thirty-seven adrenaline rush filled rides. Ranked number five in America’s top ten amusement parks outside of Orlando, this park has it all. Bring your family or ride solo amongst the thrilling variety of heart-stopping, blood pumping, action-filled attractions.

If you’re bringing your family and someone is not so much into roller coasters, it’s okay. Family Kingdom is one of the last remaining amusement parks that offers free entrance for all. Only the attractions themselves have a cost associated. One can purchase a wristband that allows unlimited all-day access, or individual tickets if you only wish to do a few of the rides. Family Kingdom park also provides free entertainment such as clowns, jugglers, stilt walker and face painters. If it is a hot summer day and you want to cool off, you could, of course, enjoy a beverage. But why not visit the neighboring water park, Splashes Oceanfront Water Park?! It has eighteen attractions including a lazy river, two enclosed body water slides, two open flume slides, two-speed slides and a few others.

Family Kingdom first opened in 1966 and has been operating for over sixty years providing fun and amusement for all. Not many privately owned amusement parks can make such a boast. This surely is a place to see, having provided families with a thrilling retreat for several generations! Try the Sling Shot, a ride that features a 100-foot free fall…. Straight down. Or try the Swamp Fox, one of the remaining 122 wooden roller coasters still in operation in the United States. Swamp Fox celebrated fifty years in operation in 2016 and in 2017, it was dubbed a historical structure in the state. Get your frustrations out in the demolition derby styled Dodgems Bumper Cars. At the end of your evening, or even midday, check out the Ferris wheel. At over 100-feet in rising height, along the coastline, you are sure to enjoy the scenic views out over the beach and Atlantic Ocean.

Family Kingdom Amusement Park is located in the heart of Myrtle Beach on Ocean Boulevard. Hours of operation vary depending on the time of year you visit. Go to to help plan your trip.
