If your family is like most, they've been planning a trip to Myrtle Beach all winter long. They can't wait to sit on the beach in the warm Carolina sun.
After you've enjoyed the beach for a few days, why not go for a change of pace? Still want to be able to splash in cool water and listen to the sound of waves as you sit in a cabana sipping a frosty drink? Just head over to Myrtle Waves Water Park.
When it opens for the season on Saturday, May 16, the park will be entering its 30th year of providing guests with the some of the best parts of a beach vacation. There's a 20,000 square foot Ocean in Motion Wave Pool that produces seaside-like surf with waves over 4 feet high.
There's also a world of adventure at Myrtle Waves. Climb 10 stories up and challenge the world's tallest tubular slides. Dare to detour on the Riptide Rockets. Take on Snake Mountain's serpentine chutes in an inner tube. Feel how time seems to stop when you body slide out of the Super Chute suspended in air, then drop dramatically into the pool below.
If you need a break from all that excitement, there's the Layzee River where you can drift in an inner tube at a leisurely 3mph pace winding throughout the park.
For the littlest kids, there's Bubble Bay, designed specially with toddlers in mind. It's 7,000 square feet with water depths from six to 18 inches, and offers three gently cascading water umbrellas and numerous bubble jets to keep the tikes entertained.
Next time your family yearns for a fresh water adventure, join the thousands of families who've enjoyed Myrtle Waves Water Park for three decades.
Spending the day there will give your whole family reason to celebrate.
