One of the best ways to beat the heat in Myrtle Beach is to visit a waterpark. Wild Water and Wheels Waterpark is one of the hottest attractions on the Grand Strand and provides hours of water fun all summer long. Splash in a giant wave pool and make your way down winding water slides, then save time for a ride on their go-karts and play a round of mini-golf. They even have a food court and snack bars set up throughout the waterpark. Let’s break it down and check out everything Wild Water & Wheels has to offer its visitors.
This Myrtle Beach area water park is home to dozens of amazing tube slides, mat slides, speed slides and racing slides. Feeling brave? The Free Fall Cliff Dive drops riders down a steep slide reaching 45 miles per hour!
The Triple Dip is another speed slide and features three signature drops. The Dark Hole tube slide is listed as the “Best Scary Ride” in Southern Living Magazine and is located next to the White Water Express and Twin Twister.
Other waterpark features include a large Wave Pool, a 950-ft Lazy River and a Lounge Pool – perfect for keeping cool during hot summer days.
Wally’s Lagoon is fun for your little ones and offers smaller slides for children under 48 inches tall plus shallow waters for even more splashing around.
