Myrtle Beach is packed full of challenging golf courses, award winning cuisine, endless shopping, and…jaw-dropping adventures. Not for the faint of heart, there are tons of exciting activities that are a must-do for extreme vacationers. If you fall into the category of thrillseeker, here are some heart-pounding experiences to add to your next Grand Strand trip itinerary:
1. Fling High Above the Boulevard
You’ve seen the videos on social media, and now it’s time to experience it for yourself. Head to Free Fall Park—home of the Slingshot—and strap in for the wildest ride in Myrtle Beach! You might find it hard not to scream as you reach 5 G’s right at takeoff and fly high over the boulevard. And don’t worry if your nerves take over and your mind goes blank, there will be a video capturing your every reaction.
2. Soar Among the Clouds
Experience the views of Myrtle Beach like never before as you take flight on a helicopter ride with Helicopter Adventures. Choose from a variety of tours including a 2-mile ride over Broadway at the Beach, a trip over Grande Dunes, soar over Barefoot Landing or go big with a 40-mile adventure along the coast of the Grand Strand. This is one incredible experience with one-of-a-kind views!
3. Satisfy That Need for Speed
Ready, set, go! It’s time to put the pedal to the metal at Broadway Grand Prix. With seven unique go-kart tracks, there is a track for every driving skill level. Slide your way around tight turns on the Slick track or test your skills on the fastest track, the Grand Prix Pro Track. Even the little ones can get in on the fun as they race laps around the Junior Track. Buckle up, this is sure to be one fast ride!
4. Get a Bird’s Eye View of the Atlantic Ocean
Venture to Downwind Sails Watersports where you can soar 300 feet in the air while parasailing. You’ll experience breathtaking views of the shore and the sparkling ocean, and who knows, you might even spot some sea creatures from up above. This is one flight you’ll never forget!
5. Train for Space in the Astronaut Challenge
Want to experience what astronauts feel on missions to space? Head to the Space Discovery Zone, one of the six wonder zones in WonderWorks, and participate in the Astronaut Challenge. Step inside the 2-person gyroscope where you’ll spin around, feeling what it feels like to be in outer space. The sensation of weightlessness is sure to leave you breathless!
6. Take the Plunge and Get Wet n’ Wild
Along the skyline in Myrtle Beach you’ll not only find hotels and restaurants, but towering waterslides. Visit Myrtle Waves Water Park across from Broadway at the Beach for a day full of thrills as you splash around. Take a turn on the high intensity Rockin’ Ray, scoot down the bowl-funnel of the Arooba Tooba, and race down the Turbo Twisters.
7. Reel One in on the High Seas
Leave the comfort of the shore and discover the unknown on a Deep Sea Fishing Charter. Your captain will drive you to a fishing spot where you’ll have the opportunity to reel in wahoo, mahi mahi, tuna, or whatever else is in season. Hopefully you’ll go home with a keeper, along with some big fishing stories!
