Amusement Parks, water parks plentiful across Grand Strand

The addition of the SkyWheel in 2011 added a new signature to the Myrtle Beach oceanfront skyline.

For amusements across the Grand Strand, ride high and make a big splash with a wealth of choices.

Many sites, such as water parks, open from later May into Labor Day weekend, have seasonal calendars, so check on operating hours, based on the time of year.
