Myrtle Beach Area Features

Family Kingdom Amusement Park

  By: Ashley Daniels

Enter the Myrtle Beach Kingdom Built for Families       

What’s better than a vacation at the beach? It’s a fun-filled day or night with your family enjoying the thrills of the 38 rides at the seaside Family Kingdom Amusement Park.

A family tradition since 1966, this Myrtle Beach landmark has been putting smiles on countless faces season after season for the last 52 years. The park has created incredible thrill rides for all ages, including: the legendary Swamp Fox wooden roller coaster, the only wooden coaster operating in the state; the Twist ’n Shout steel roller coaster; the imaginative flying Magic Bikes; high-flying Kite Flyer; the hippity-hoppity Frog Hopper; the Jump Around Dune Buggies, Bumper Cars, and Go-Kart tracks; the cool Log Flume; breathtaking views from the open gondola Ferris wheel; and the 110-foot free-fall Slingshot Drop Zone. There’s never a dull moment—only new and exciting memories!

If that’s not enough to please your family, take a quick walk across Ocean Boulevard to Family Kingdom’s Splashes Oceanfront Water Park, where you can cool off and speed down water slides, the lazy river, kiddie pools and much more.

“Family Kingdom is a favorite among visitors to Myrtle Beach because we have such a great variety of thrill rides, family rides, kiddie rides, and entertainment,” says Donnie Sipes, general manager of Family Kingdom. “We also have an awesome midway with games and the best in carnival foods.”

Vendors serve up popular park munchies such as funnel cakes, cotton candy and corn dogs. Family Kingdom’s Picnic Pavilion, a covered dining area, can accommodate up to 100 guests for special events such as birthday parties, family reunions and more.

The best part of all of this fun in the sun is there’s never an admission fee to enter Family Kingdom Amusement Park. Just pay as you ride or purchase an all-day wristband (combo passes are available for the amusement park and water park).

“The park is a great value for families because it's one of the few remaining parks in the United States that doesn’t charge an admission fee,” says Sipes. “With the all-day unlimited ride wristband, folks can come and go throughout the day and evening, enjoying rides as much as they like.”

Family comes first at Family Kingdom Amusement Park, where families will love exploring—day and night—acres of wholesome fun at every turn within this enchanting kingdom by the sea. Don’t miss your chance to jumpstart a vacation tradition with your family, like so many others who step through the front gates.

Family Kingdom Amusement Park is located at Ocean Blvd. and 3rd Ave. South in Myrtle Beach. For more info on the park schedule, ticket prices and more, visit or call 843-626-3447.
