Ever since the historic Pavilion in downtown Myrtle Beach closed in 2008, a large vacant field has sat dormant while new developments have sprang up around it. With the new Myrtle Beach Boardwalk becoming the main attraction, an exciting new concept has finally filled the empty space along Ocean Boulevard.

Adrenaline Adventure is a zipline and ropes course that has been constructed on the old Pavilion site, where a new generation of thrill-seekers are going to get their adrenaline rush. Visitors scale a six-story tower and strap into a safety harness before flying 600 feet through the air. Approaching speeds of 40 mph, while soaring 60 feet off the ground, gives guests with the need for speed all they can handle and more.
Featuring a series of six side-by-side ropes, families and friends can take part in this activity together. Best of all, the ride provides a bird's-eye view of the lovely Atlantic Ocean and the downtown district. The fear of heights is quickly replaced by a feeling of euphoria and the excitement of flight.

But the fun doesn't stop with the arrival at the landing tower. Visitors then get the chance to experience a 60-foot free fall by diving off the side of the tower to the ground. The harness guides the brave at heart safely to the ground floor. Adrenaline Adventure takes photos of unsuspecting divers and posts them for sale at the end of the trip.
