Family Kingdom

If you're looking for a few family-friendly thrills, you can't go wrong with an amusement park. Here are some amusement parks in South Carolina, listed in alphabetical order.

Broadway Grand Prix in Myrtle Beach

Family entertainment center includes go-karts, mini-golf, a sky coaster (bungee-like ride), and an arcade.

Family Kingdom in Myrtle Beach

One of a few remaining traditional seaside amusement parks in the country (let alone South Carolina), Family Kingdom offers a great wooden roller coaster, Swamp Fox, as well as a good collection of flat rides.

O.D. Pavilion Amusement Park in North Myrtle Beach

This small park includes portable, carnival-type rides including a couple of small coasters.

Pavilion Nostalgia Park in Myrtle Beach (At Broadway at the Beach)

A handful of the rides, including the historic carousel and band organ, that used to be at the closed Myrtle Beach Pavilion are at this mini ode to the seaside park.

Pedroland (South of the Border) in Dillon

Motorists traveling along I-95 can't miss Pedroland. The billboards start building anticipation hundreds of miles in advance of the landmark. More a truck stop/roadside attraction that grew to enormous proportions than an amusement park, Pedroland includes a few rides, like a Ferris wheel and bumper cars, among the tacky gift shops, restaurants, and other diversions.
