102 THINGS TO DO IN MYRTLE BEACH

36. Thrill Rides

The handful of thrill rides around the Grand Strand are not for the faint of heart, or for those who faint. They’re for a special breed of people — adrenaline junkies, risk-takers, those out to push the limits of things. Whether you want to zoom through the sky, go way up into the air in a small glass box, or ride an old-school rollercoaster than feels like it could come of the tracks at any moment (it won’t), Myrtle Beach has the perfect thing for the thrill-seekers among us.

To be clear, these rides cheat death. For some people, life is scary enough as it is and their feet are most comfortable on the ground. But for those who are willing to take the risk, the rewards can make for memories that last a lifetime.
