Hurricane closed at the end of the 2006 season when the Myrtle Beach Pavilion Park closed forever. Its final day of operation was September 30, 2006.

Myrtle Beach's Hurricane captures the essence of an out & back wooden coaster with its great runs of bunny hills and speed, while reminding patrons that it is indeed a hurricane with its massive helices at each end of the ride. Designed especially to bridge over several existing rides and attractions, Hurricane demonstrates the ability of Custom Coasters to design a coaster to fit in virtually any location. This out & back thrill ride defines the property line of Myrtle Beach Pavilion Amusement Park and is sure to become a landmark along the coast as it coaxes all who pass to challenge the storm of Hurricane.
