An exciting amusement park located at Surfside Beach, the 16-acre Wild Water & Wheels features a variety of thrill rides and water attractions for guests of all ages. The park features 24 slides—one of which was deemed the “best scary ride” by Southern Living Magazine—plus a 950-foot lazy river, a wave pool, bumper boats, go-karts, an 18-hole miniature golf course and other exciting family rides.

There are only two (non-hotel linked) water parks in Myrtle Beach region. This is the better of the two. We usually come a couple times a year when we get a discount. The park itself is clean. The staff understands we all walk around in bare feet and are grossed out by melting ice cream and soggy band aids. Thankfully they do a good job of keeping things tidy and clean. The water is well kept. Not overly chlorinated. It has been clear every time we have visited. The slides are good and there are enough of them to keep us all happily occupied all afternoon. There are lockers inside and outside the park, and plenty of beach chairs. We don't eat there, but I hear it's about average for park food. Pizza and hot dogs. Sure, it's not world class, but for what it's worth, we enjoy it.

Our family has been going to this waterpark for many years! The waters are always clean and very refreshing! This place does get packed very quickly so make sure you arrive early. The lines usually get pretty long but the slides are worth waiting for! The "Dark Hole" slide is really fun with a couple of unexpected drops going down. It can be hard to get a tube sometimes, and there is a good bit of them that are under inflated but this waterpark is the best one in all of Myrtle Beach by far!
You have bumper boats, mini golf, go carts, and a water park all in one location. What more could you ask for? I have been when it was super crowded and lines were long, but we went on a Tuesday in August on a cloudy day, and we had plenty of time and hardly any lines.
Our Hilton Hotel had free admission vouchers. I didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised. You could tell maintenance was being done. The tubes and mats were clean and undamaged. The typical things were all there, wave pool, lazy river, mat slides, tube slides, super steep wedgie slide, etc. The go-carts were an extra $10 and separate "rides" shared the same track. Be careful not to burn your legs on the bumper boats; the motors are right between them and they get HOT.

Are coolers, outside food or drink allowed inside the waterpark?
No, but a picnic area is available right outside the front entrance by the pond.
