After the old Pavilion closed, Family Kingdom was left as Myrtle Beach's only oceanfront amusement park. Rather than rest on its monopoly, Family Kingdom expanded into two attractions in one. The amusement park has several new and modern thrill rides to go with the famous Swamp Fox, plus about 30 other fun rides with a mix of fun and fear that appeals to the whole family. The water park is right on the beach and features several flumes, slides and wave pools. The amusement park is open March-September, but daily hours vary so call ahead. The water park is open from Memorial Day-Labor Day daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

- Things to Do with Kids: "Guests willing to make a full day of it can save money by purchasing a combo pass to both attractions."
- Best Attractions & Activities, Outdoor Activities: "Guests can get a nice discount by purchasing passes to both parks."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: Family members who don't want to ride the attractions can tag along for free and laugh along with the thrill-seekers.
