Expensive, but fun for the kids. I'm just glad it's still there since they did away with the historical Pavilion.

Found this to be a little pricey. I have a larger than average size family, no more than a $2 discount on tickets & to add the water side made prices go to $40 each.

It gets freaking hot during the day. Get an all day pass and go in the morning and come back after it cools down. You can leave and come back as much as you want during the day, so that's nice. Ok rides, nothing spectacular...More

We loved Family Kingdom Amusement Park...except for extremely hot weather and extremely irritating companions..neither of which Family Kingdom could control. The park is actually in the middle of Myrtle Beach basically in a large parking lot. The prices were good; the employees were friendly; the...More

We enjoyed it just did not have enough excitement. We did the coaster and was fun. I screamed a little.

It's clean, safe and a lot of fun. It is close to the beach and the rides fairly new and they are well maintained.

You can purchase a wristband for every ride in the park without having to pay for tickets, the go carts are only additional and the zip line. Not a lot at all though.

all of the adult rides have a two person set belt and or a bar? Reason why I ask is bc I'm 5'4 and 290 pounds. Pretty much look like a prego woman lol just don't wanna get embarrassed.

It depends on the ride. Some rides like the carousel, Ferris wheel, log flume have no seat belts. I did not ride every ride there but didn't have much issue with what I did ride. Again, I have my tricks. I am 5' 10" and... More
