Myrtle Waves Water Park
Myrtle Waves Water Park pumps some 1.2 million gallons of water daily through churning wave pools, meandering rapids, super slides, and calming raft rides, perfect for cooling down during the hot South Carolina summer. The state’s largest water park features more than 30 attractions catering to both thrill seekers and the tiniest visitors.
Myrtle Waves Water Park is one of the most popular spots for families, particularly during the summer months. Admission is based on height (over or under 48 inches), and kids under two years of age get in free. Visitors planning to make multiple trips to the water park can opt for a weeklong pass (good for seven consecutive days), while budget travelers can save with a twilight ticket, which grants entrance three hours before closing. Park goers can also upgrade their ticket with unlimited rides on the park’s FlowRider surf simulator.
