Pirate's Island Adventure Golf keeps mini-golfers guessing as they traverse two 18-hole courses impeded by all manner of pirate-themed obstacles. The courses provide an ideal venue for all members of the family to sink testy putts, then retrieve dimpled orbs from the cup and behold them like a scurvy-plagued buccaneer admiring a citrus fruit. Demonstrate a steady hand by sinking a putt while being stared down by a skeletal swashbuckler, or study the patterns of water dispersal while playing one of the holes that run alongside refreshing waterfalls. Children with high verisimilitude standards will appreciate the well-wrought pirate-ship wreckage and treasure chests that stalk them as they loop the course and hone their knowledge of nautical terminology.
Scampering through Lazer FX–Lazer Tag's 7,500-square-foot labyrinth, combatants volley photons in exhilarating 20-minute skirmishes. Laser soldiers don luminescent vests and DayGlo bowties before entering the arena, where a mix of 30-odd friends and foes dodge blasts while darting from refuge to refuge. For groups of four, the battle extends out of the arena and onto the 8,000-square-foot arcade floor. Here, more than 120 games—including pool tables, skee-ball lanes, driving simulators, and air hockey—promote hand-eye coordination more effectively than soccer.
What was once a stately building in the Bermuda Triangle has gone topsy-turvy, thanks to an experiment gone awry from Professor Wonder and his team of brilliant scientists, who were using the manse as top-secret laboratory. After WonderWorks crash-landed upside-down in Myrtle Beach, the eccentric researchers accepted their fate and kept their experiments up and running. Today, kids and adults who visit the whimsical discovery center can get their hands on more than 100 interactive exhibits, such as a hurricane shack that tests your ability to withstand Category 1 winds, a bubble lab, and a roller-coaster simulator. Before stopping by the onsite restaurant for lunch, discoverers tackle an indoor ropes course and challenge one another to games of laser tag.
At the start of every game, fog fills Surf's Up Family Fun Center’s multi-level, underwater-themed laser tag arena. It’s one of several obstacles that up to 60 players tackle as they sneak up on opponents and navigate labyrinthine corridors decked out in black-lit murals of aquatic critters.
Laser tag isn’t the only adrenaline-pumping activity to be found inside the 18,000-square foot fun center. Four challenging paths lead climbers to the summit of a 24-foot rock wall equipped with an auto-belay system. Meanwhile, pucks zip across air hockey tables in an arcade with more than 60 games, including Dance Dance Revolution and its classic sequel Rest Rest Revolution. Otherwise, twisting tubes connect the multi-level play structure in a soft play area for younger kids, who can also ride down slides or play rounds of skee-ball.
To refuel hungry guests, an all-you-can-eat buffet serves 10 types of pizza, as well as pastas, salads, desserts, and soft drinks.
Patrons of all ages embark on hours of outdoor adventure on winding go-kart tracks and imaginative mini-golf courses at Fun Zone Amusement & Sports Park. Wristband-wearing folk hop behind the wheel of a go-kart and whip around three speed-inducing raceways. The short, oval-shaped Kiddy Karts track is designed for racers under 4 feet tall with at least three years of life experience, and licensed drivers can chauffeur younger passengers around full-size tracks, hugging sharp turns and kissing bugs that whiz by on the Road Course and Figure 8.
Designed to look like an island retreat, Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark is more than just a place to beat the heat. It’s a fun-filled playground complete with slides, squirt guns, and a wave pool. The Big Splash Tree House is outfitted with 66 interactive features, including a giant bucket that drenches visitors with more than 1,000 gallons of water. The Tubular Twister sends riders shooting down a trio of 300-foot slides, while the Big Kahuna recreates the ocean’s waves in a 27,000-square foot pool. Little ones can play in gentler areas such as Lily Pad Lagoon and Otter Bay, which has a six-lane racer slide. In between aquatic activities, you can relax in the lazy river or stop by the concession stands for a quick bite.
