Who doesn’t love an amusement park and the thrills that can only be experienced when riding the most cutting edge park rides! When it comes to the best the Grand Strand has to offer come to Broadway at the Beach and check out the new amusement park rides. Fabulous just got a whole lot better!
This popular retail-entertainment complex in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has some new amusement park rides arriving and being set up in the park. The new rides include:
Rocket Flyer — A 180 foot tall tower ride where riders will sit inside one of three or four giant rockets that will swing around the tower at high speed. Hold onto your stomachs on this one!
Speed XXL — A 112-ft high spectacle of a thrill ride. At the end of each arm, a gondola holds 4 people who will experience the thrill of their life at 3G speeds. Definitely for the bravest among you!
Freak-Out — Only the bravest of patrons with the toughest stomachs are able to handle this ride. Patrons swing and scream suspended from a bungee-like cord that slingshots you around.
The Giant Slide — An old playground classic but on a much grander scale. This dry slide is 65 ft. tall! Riders experience the thrill of an 180 ft. long drop to the bottom.
While the Rocket Flyer has moved into the spot at the Pavilion Nostalgia Park that had been occupied by the Wave Swinger, it remains to be seen where the other new rides are located.
Broadway at the Beach has 100 shops, 23 restaurants and eateries and a cluster of nightclubs known as Celebrity Square. Like most other attractions along the Grand Strand, Broadway says it likes to add new offerings each year to give returning visitors to the area something new. In addition to the new park rides, several new stores and restaurants are moving into Broadway, which is between 21st Avenue North and 29th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach.
