Cool off this summer with Myrtle Beach Water Parks!

Lounging by the pool is great, and so is splashing around in the ocean. But sometimes you just want to go all-out with the water-based fun, and that’s when Myrtle Beach’s great water parks come into play! There are plenty of choices for zippy waterslides and sun-soaked play pools of all sizes, so next time you visit Caribbean Resort, you may want to bring an extra bathing suit!

First off, Caribbean Resort guests are delighted to find that we have an oceanfront water park right here onsite! Our outdoor pool is oceanfront and includes the giant Pirate’s Plunge tube water slide with the twists and turns that make for a great ride and a super splashdown—and it’s not just for the kids. Parents love to get in on the fun, too.

But if you need a break from the slide, Caribbean’s water park also has a 200 foot lazy river, great for relaxing and recharging. And for the little ones, there’s also a Silly Submarine pool that brigs the fun, along with a sea-themed rainmaker. And if you need a break from the sun, there’s also an indoor pool and kiddie pool, as well as an indoor lazy river.

If you’d like to go a little farther afield, Splashes water park by Family Kingdom is just about 10 minutes from the resort, and offers an array of oceanfront water park fun. Splashes has big, fast waterslides for the thrill-seekers in your family—the water flumes have more than 100 foot drop—as well as mellower areas for smaller kids and those just looking to relax and cool off.

Splashes unlimited ride wristbands for adults and kids over 48 inches tall are $20.95 for 2013 and $18.95 for kids shorter than 48 inches, though admission to the park is free for those in your group who don’t want to swim or ride.

For even more choices in your water park, there’s Myrtle Waves, South Carolina’s largest water park. Choose from raft rides like a long and luxurious LaZee river that winds through more than 1,200 feet at three miles per hour; a peanut shaped 10 mile per hour river that kids can ride with skimmer boards; or the slides that thrill and chill, such as the 10-story high turbo twister and the 350-foot Riptide Rocket water flume. There’s also a super chute, with a 20-foot long enclosed tube that shoots riders out into a four-foot vertical drop.

Myrtle Waves is also about 10 minutes from Caribbean Resort, and it’s free for kids 2 and younger, with summer 2013 tickets for kids and adults range from $24.99 to $27.99, with discounts for purchasing in advance online. You can also save money on a per-day basis by combining your visit with NASCAR SpeedPark, Pavilion Nostalgia Park, buying extended visits or twilight passes for after 3 p.m. There is also a $2 daily charge for parking ($5 VIP), so plan accordingly.
