Myrtle Beach's Family Kingdom Amusement Park To Open March 21

Myrtle Beach, S.C. -- Family Kingdom Amusement Park, in the heart of Myrtle Beach, S.C., will open for the season Friday, March 21st. Located on Ocean Boulevard, Family Kingdom is the Grand Strand's only seaside amusement park. It offers a complete amusement park experience with over 30 rides and attractions, in addition to midway games, family entertainment and traditional park temptations such as funnel cakes, cotton candy and corndogs. Opened in 1966, it is home to the legendary Swamp Fox wooden roller coaster and the largest Ferris wheel in the state of South Carolina.

Family Kingdom was recently voted the best "Family Amusement Venue" in The Sun News annual poll of its readers. And, online travel Web site "Trip Advisor" ranks it among the top five amusement parks in the United States outside of Orlando.

"We are pleased to be able to continue the tradition of free admission to Family Kingdom," said Leigh Meese, president of Family Kingdom Amusement Park. "At Family Kingdom the emphasis is on creating an experience for the entire family so we think it's important to be budget-friendly. Families can stroll the midway and buy tickets by the ride or save even more by purchasing all-day wristbands that allow for unlimited rides. Our wristbands are an exceptional value because they cost about a third of the price paid for just the admission to a theme park. That's important in these days of high gas prices and tight family budgets."
