A must for families who make the yearly visit to Myrtle Beach, the Family Kingdom Amusement Park sits beachside, offering panoramic views of the ocean and the Grand Strand from its Ferris wheel. Spanning 13 acres, the park boasts 37 rides, including a roller coaster, go-karts, a carousel and rides specifically designed for small children. Among the park's star attractions are its Ferris wheel — which was the highest in the state until 2011 — and its water park, which includes water slides and a lazy river. Parents say it's suitable for family members of all ages, plus the park is budget-friendly.
Entrance to the park is free, but if you want to take a spin on any of its rides, you'll have to buy tickets for each ride or purchase a wristband. Individual ride tickets cost $1.15 (plus tax); all-day unlimited ride wristbands cost $27.95 for adults and children. For $10 more, you can also add on all-day access to the water park. The park also offers day passes to its water park, which cost $19.95 for adults and kids. On-site parking is available for $7 per vehicle. Generally, the park is open from late March to early October. Hours vary, so check the park's website or call ahead before visiting.
