Fly High And Get A Bird’s Eye View Of Myrtle Beach

Posted in Attractions

Ever wish you could get a true bird's eye view of Myrtle Beach? Spring is the picture-perfect time of year to get a look at Myrtle Beach from high above.The trees are flowering, golf courses are sparkling emerald green, the sandy beaches are uncrowded, and there are spectacular views of blue-green ocean waves lapping on the shore.

It's easy to go up, up and away for the ride of your life right from Broadway at the Beach. Helicopter Adventures offers several scenic tours that climb high above some of the most awesome scenery along the Grand Strand. The introductory two-mile tour will astound you when you see Lake Broadway and the Pelicans Stadium from above. Even more picturesque aerial views are served up on longer tours that carry you over Pine Lakes Country Club, Grande Dunes Golf Course, and Barefoot Landing — all the way to the North Carolina/South Carolina state line.

While you soar through the air with friends, your professional pilot provides an overview of the sites through your high-tech headset, and answers any questions that you have. And, because every seat is a window seat with panoramic views from the cockpit, you get an unparalleled opportunity to video or photograph your own memorable shots from the air.

It's just minutes to the heli-pad at Helicopter Adventures via a free shuttle at Broadway at the Beach. So isn't it time you buckled up, put a headset on, and got a bird's eye view of Myrtle Beach from the ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway?

Imaginations Run Wild At WonderWorks

Posted in Attractions

Did you know that Broadway at the Beach is home to the only WonderWorks in the Carolinas?

The "upside down house" on the southwestern side of Lake Broadway is one of the coolest landmarks in Myrtle Beach. But it wasn't even there when Broadway at the Beach opened.

Legend has it that WonderWorks was carried on the wind over thousands of miles before landing in Myrtle Beach. It began as a secret science laboratory deep in the Bermuda Triangle. There, a great scientist named Professor Wonder labored at creating a man-made tornado. But his experiment failed terribly, causing the building to be torn from its moorings and transported by the force of an uncontrollable wind. Its journey ended where it stands today, and it became home to over 100 interactive, hands-on exhibits.

WonderWorks is the one place where you can experience the fury of a category 1 hurricane and emerge without a scratch. You can impress your friends by laying safely on a bed of 3,500 sharp nails. And you can shake, rattle and scream while on a hair-raising, realistic ride through spectacular virtual scenery, courtesy of the XD Theater 6D Extreme Motion-Simulated Thrill Ride's 3D films, special effects, full motion seats and surround sound.

There's even a place for a little competitive Lazer-Tag inside a cavernous 2,100 square foot high-tech action center. And this year a new WonderWorks Kids Zone is being added to entertain younger family members.

There are only five WonderWorks in the entire world and it's one of the many attractions that make Broadway at the Beach a very special place to visit.

A warm weekend is forecast for Myrtle Beach with temperatures hovering around 70. Flowers are already bursting into bloom and streets lined with Bradford Pear and redbud trees are alive with color.

Broadway at the Beach is the perfect place to shake off the winter blues. Take a stroll around beautiful Lake Broadway and feed the fish from one of our bridges. Or relax and have a laugh with our resident ducks as they put on their own special show waddling and playing on the green grass along the lake shore.

Grab some lunch and let your inner joy over the warm weather burst out by joining the wait staff at Johnny Rocket's in a song. Rev up your taste buds with one of the true signs of summer — a big, juicy burger. Top off lunch with a cool lemonade or some hand turned fudge from The Fudgery.

When you're full of warm-weather treats, work off the calories by checking out the latest and greatest things we have for 2014 in our shops. Shoot for a hole-in-one at Dragon's Lair miniature golf, and then top off the day with a movie at our Carmike Cinema or a live show at Legends In Concert or The Palace.

We'll be looking for you this weekend. So, come get your fun on!
