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.
Family entertainment center includes go-karts, mini-golf, a sky coaster (bungee-like ride), and an arcade.
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.
This small park includes portable, carnival-type rides including a couple of small coasters.
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.
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.
