If you’re prepared to scream at the top of your lungs while having the time of your life, we’ve got just the vacation destination for you. Get ready to flip, spin and soar over the Grand Strand. Whether you want to be slung into the air, live the life of a race car driver or fly high over the Atlantic Ocean, you can do all of those things plus more, all within a close proximity to The Strand Resort.
To really start your day off with a shot of adrenaline, head over to the Sling Shot located along the famous Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. While you are mentally preparing yourself to step onto a ride known to make grown men cry, watch others soar over 300 feet into the sky and listen to their screams of fear and excitement. Don’t let that scare you away too easily, though — it is called a thrill ride for a reason. Step up to the platform and get strapped into the open-air car that is connected to giant bungee cords, then get shot up into the Carolina sky reaching speeds of 100 mph.
Another top thrill ride in the Grand Strand area is located just a short walk from the Boardwalk, next to the Family Kingdom Amusement Park. The Skyscraper will give you a whole new perspective of the white-sand beaches because you may just happen to see them while being flipped upside down. This ride is a 160-foot propeller that spins riders a full 360 degrees, reaching speeds of up to 60 mph and suspending riders at heights of 16 stories.
Being flipped and tossed in every way and direction isn’t for you? That’s no problem, because there are plenty of other thrilling adventures to pursue while visiting Myrtle Beach. Another popular way to spend the day along the Grand Strand is zip-lining. You may choose to do so while looking at the ocean or soaring over a large body of water, along with some other challenges. Myrtle Beach Zipline Adventures allows you to zip-line alongside family and friends while breathing in the salty ocean air. Additionally, just up the road at Broadway at the Beach, you are able to complete the Soar + Explore Zipline & Ropes Course. Bystanders will witness you take on the challenge and even give you words of encouragement as you have the time of your life.
Do you have a need for speed? Well, get ready for an adrenaline rush as you put on a helmet and slip in to a real NASCAR race car. With the NASCAR Racing Experience at the Myrtle Beach Speedway, you can either ride shotgun with a professional driver as they reach top speeds or drive your own laps around the speedway. Needless to say, it will be an unforgettable adventure as you come zooming over the finish line.
Finally, check out Myrtle Beach from a new height while parasailing. You can do it by yourself or bring a friend along as you are strapped to a parachute while standing on the back of a boat. As your heart starts to pound, you are propelled into the clear, blue skies while soaking up breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. This will get your blood pumping and leave you with a new sense of adventure.
As you can see, there are so many ways to experience the ultimate thrill in Myrtle Beach. Check your anxiety at the door and get out and enjoy all the excitement Myrtle Beach has to offer while staying at The Strand Resort in the heart of Myrtle Beach.
