The next stop on our Myrtle Beach tour of family fun was Myrtle Waves Water Park which happens to be the largest water park in South Carolina! Our kids hadn’t been to a water park in almost two years so they were quite small the last time we went to one. I was anxious to see how much they would be willing to take on! I had the job of hanging with the little man who wasn’t quite tall enough to try all the big slides. We spent our day hanging in the kid areas and had a fabulous time doing so! He loved the Saturation Station and even braved this area solo, under the watchful eye of mom, toward the end of the day. It was really neat to see him find the confidence and experience some independence while his sisters enjoyed other areas of the park.
We also spent some time in Bubble Bay. This is another area he could handle by himself for the most part, but his big sisters crashed for a bit too. I’ll admit, it was nice to relax a little while he explored these areas and met some new friends.
The entire family had a great time in the Ocean in Motion Wave Pool! Little man and I spent a good time here and then returned with the rest of the family later in the day. He loved ‘diving’ under the waves and the girls had a great time floating in the tubes.
Speaking of the girls, they conquered just about everything in the park! My husband was so proud of them for being brave and trying new things. Everything from the Turbo Twisters and Riptide Rockets to the Super Chute and even Arooba Tooba! I couldn’t believe it but Arooba Tooba was the clear favorite!
A tip from my husband: if Arooba Tooba is on your list, go there FIRST! Early in the day there was almost no line. By the time he rode it with our daughter around lunch the wait was an hour! It’s worth the wait but beat it if you can.
Overall, it was a fantastic day and we will return should we find ourselves in Myrtle Beach in the near future. Like next year. 😉 The kids had a great day, dad had a great day and anywhere mom can do this for even a few minutes…
Is a WIN in my book! You can learn all about Myrtle Waves, including ride and admission information, on their website.
Wishing you pleasant vacation planning dreams!
