Myrtle Waves, Wild Water & Wheels Parks Add New Features for 2019 | Visit
This year, kids can take their Moms to Myrtle Waves for Mother’s Day and their Dads to Myrtle Waves or Wild Water & Wheels for Father’s Day.
Myrtle Waves opens for the 2019 season on May 11, and Wild Water & Wheels will open on May 25.
Myrtle Waves opens early this year so anyone already out of school can visit Myrtle Waves on Mother’s Day when Moms come in for free, said Christina Watts, director of marketing and advertising for the Lazarus Entertainment Group.
“It’s also an opportunity for our season pass holders to enjoy the park,” she said.
Myrtle Waves Water Park
Myrtle Waves Waterpark will be open weekends only from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for its first two weekends of the season, then will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. six days a week starting May 24. Thursdays, the park will be open until 9 p.m.
These Thursdays will be pretty special, with a different movie each week on the wave pool screen.
And to make it a little more special, these movies will be themed Halloween in June, Christmas in July, and Star Wars Night in August.
“Each of these evenings will feature a movie corresponding to the theme, and we’ll be fundraising for a good cause at the same time,” Watts said.
The rides and other attractions will remain open during the movies.
There are one million gallons of water used to bring Myrtle Waves 14 attractions and 24 water slides to locals and tourists alike who continue to enjoy them year after year.
The 20-acre park’s water slides, tube slides, FlowRider, and play areas make it a favorite destination in Myrtle Beach.
A lot of people don’t know the park has the FlowRider. Watts described the attraction as “a platform where children and adults can enjoy the thrill of riding a wave. It features a bodyboard board imitating a wave, like in the ocean.
Even the snack bar, Sharkey’s, will have something new this year, and it’s the tacos, which will be available for the first time.
Myrtle Waves Water Park is located at 3000 Mr. Joe White Ave. in Myrtle Beach, and the phone number is 843-913-9250.

Wild Water & Wheels Waterpark
Speed slides, tube slides, carpet slides, swimming pools, running area, bumper boats, mini golf and kids’ attractions are joined at the 16-acre Wild Water & Wheels water park by the all-new Monster Drop Slide this year.
The Monster Drop Slide, Watts said, features a deep body of water into which two slides enter. One slide is included and the other is not.

Sunday Funday offers bracelets at $ 18.98 starting June 2 and the next day the Manic Mondays start, also with bracelets at $ 18.95.
