What about little kids? Myrtle Beach offers fun rides for young children at Broadway at the Beach

Wonder where to take your preschool kids for a fun outing in Myrtle Beach? The Pavilion Amusement Park at Broadway at the Beach has a dedicated section for little ones located near WonderWorks Soar and Explore. Each ride is $3 + tax. You’re better off buying in bulk (i.e. 9 rides for $20 + tax). The rides open at 12PM and run till dusk. Note this section is closed January through March, however the one next to the Aquarium is open year around.

The “thriller” drop! Actually is a sequence of small hops, the kids go gaga over…I quit after my first ride and instead focused on documenting my daughter’s adventure.

Cmon mom, hop on little froggy!

All NASCAR drivers started at Speedcar…This is a bump free car chase. The apex is the fast turn, that is swishing the kids around at high speed.

Whee! She did it 4 times in a row

My favorite was the Ferris Wheel ride. It’s relaxing and you get a spectacular view of the entire Broadway at the Beach area, including the lake, restaurants, promenade bridges and attractions.

Mayday, mayday! Kids fly 1940s style airplanes, by lifting the plane and shooting at King Kong (not my choice for a target)

Look at me, I am a real pilot!

My daughter got the honor to “operate” the Broadway Line locomotive while I got to ride in the back with the commoners. Beware of the giant chicken and the green dinosaur!

Of course no visit is complete without riding the carousel
