"Great fun and clean!"
April, 2018
We’ve been to Myrtle Beach many times and never got over to family kingdom. So glad we went. It was very busy spring break week but lines were short. Lots of rides for all ages at a great price. Bathrooms were clean as well. There seem to be a few large families of or tour groups with very revealing attire but not very bothersome.

"Fun Outing for the whole Family"
April, 2018
Visited the Amusement Park during Spring Break on a Friday. Our young teenagers had a great time as well as our pre-teens. We went in the early afternoon so the lines weren't terribly long. All the kids agreed that this was the best outing they had during that week. We'll be sure to visit again next time the Family returns to the area.

My family and I had an awesome day spent at Family Kingdom. My 4 girls had so much fun that they wanted to go back for a second day. It is a great price for what all is there to do. Your family is sure to have hours and hours of fun there. There were rides for all ages. Thank you Family Kingdom for putting smiles on our faces. I would highly recommend this place any day.

"Spring Break 18"
April, 2018
This was our first family experience at Family Kingdom. The girls had an awesome time. Even down to my 1 year old , there were a few things she was able to get on and enjoy. The weather was nice and it was the perfect day to go ! The lines were a little long and waiting was a little tense but it still wasn’t too bad being that it was spring break as well as the first week the park opened for the season. The staff was very polite and helpful. We definitely will be going back again this summer.

"Great Family Fun!"
April, 2018
I have taken my family to Family Kingdom for several years, and we always walk away feeling like we just had a wonderful time for a very reasonable price. The kids got to ride the amusements all night for about $25, which is a GREAT deal at Myrtle Beach. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the amusements are appropriate for the under 10 age group. We will definitely be back!

We walked the river runs into the ocean while here. There were bumper cars and other rides for children. There were plenty of carnival like games to play as well as caricature drawings and such.

"Swamp Fox Roller Coaster WORST EVER!!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed May 14, 2018 NEW
The Swamp Fox is the roughest jerkiest roller coaster this coaster enthusiast has ever had the misfortune to ride. It could very easily cause serious injury to the unsuspecting rider. The cars slam down at the bottom of the hills with little padding and obviously no suspension, The whole ride I was just trying to get through the next turn or hill without injury. You are jerked side to side and slammed down at the bottom of even tiny hills this roller coaster has been painted but obviously has not been properly maintained over the years Want a nice wooden roller coaster ride? Go to Cedar Point there are several and just as old but lovingly maintained for rider comfort and safety. No I don't work for the Park and no compensation for this review just sharing good advice from one coaster enthusiast to another.

"Full day of family fun."

Reviewed April 29, 2018 NEW
Doesn't have huge roller coasters, but it's a full day of fun while being across the street from the ocean. It has plenty of fun for the younger kids, that for a few bucks, will fill a full day in Myrtle Beach with fun memories.

"Good place for Young Kids"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 28, 2018 NEW
I don't have young kids anymore but I could tell it was great place for them. There are rides for every ages but mostly for the young ones which is hard these days. The best deal is the wrist band deal where you can ride all the rides as many times as you wanted. If you have young kids check it out.

"HIDDEN GEM!!!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed April 28, 2018 NEW
If you need something to do in the evening, this is a great spot for toddlers. They have a wide mix of rides for the little ones. We hit up 35 tickets worth of rides in 1.5 hours. Get the bands. It’s definitely worth the money. Now we never had to wait in line so that helped quite a bit. My daughter loves this place. It is super clean and not likes the street rides where it feels like a loose bolt could make the whole place crumble. The folks are super nice and love doing their jobs. We’ve just not had a bad experience there. We will be going back tonight. Definitely check it out!
