There’s something about an amusement park that tugs at the heart strings. Described by some visitors as being “reminiscent of the old mid-American carnivals with old school rides” and “nicer than a county fair”, Family Kingdom is an old style amusement park and oceanfront water park.
And, as an added bonus, it’s located just three blocks away from one of the best Myrtle Beach Resorts -- Captain’s Quarters.
The amusement park features more than 30 rides ranging from the traditional Carousel to a 110-foot freefall Slingshot Drop Zone. You’ll also find an old-style wooden roller coaster, a Ferris wheel that looks down over the ocean, and the Log Flume, a breathtaking ride that ends in a giant splash.
Family Kingdom is most popular at night, when the park and all the rides are lit up and music fills the air – indeed the only complaints have been comments that the park is sometimes just too crowded after dark. If you have small kids, you’ll probably want to take them along during the daytime anyway, when they will love the bumper cars, the two go-kart tracks, and the miniature locomotive that winds its way beneath the roller coaster and around the park. Family Kingdom also offers a large picnic pavilion that can hold as many as 100 people, an ideal place to arrange for a family reunion, a group outing or a kiddie’s birthday party.
Immediately opposite the traditional amusement park across South Ocean Blvd. and part of the Family Kingdom complex, is the water park, which features a couple of large speed slides, eight kiddies’ slides, water flumes and a 425-foot long lazy river that even has waterfalls. Family Kingdom is the only amusement park and water park in Myrtle Beach, and, being only 5 minutes’ walk from the most family friendly Myrtle Beach Hotels -- Captain’s Quarters – it is a definite “must” for a day’s entertainment.
