June 24, 2019

Is there an adventurous activity that you’ve always wanted to try, but just haven’t had the courage or chance to do? Myrtle Beach isn’t only a hot spot for beautiful beaches and award-winning dining, but the Grand Strand is also home to many great thrilling attractions that may be on your bucket list. From exciting race car rides to enthralling ziplines, to fun watersports and helicopters, Myrtle Beach is definitely the place to cross something off of your bucket list.

Check out these 10 bucket list adventures in Myrtle Beach:

River Island Adventures

1249 Vera Rd, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29568

Love TV shows like Survivor and Amazing Race? Now you can be part of something similar in Myrtle Beach! River Island Adventures is home to the Escape River Island challenge where guests will team up in teams of two and compete against other players in challenges in order to escape from a secluded island on the river! If that’s not something you want to do, River Island Adventures also offers activities such as kayaking, tubing, pontoon boat rides, camping, and more!

Broadway Grand Prix Family Race Park

1820 21st Avenue North, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
from 40

Thrill seekers can knock out a couple bucket list items at Broadway Grand Prix. Not only can you zip around on seven go-kart tracks, but you can also test your strength and climb to the top of a rock wall. If you’ve done both of those things before, then you must take a ride on the Sky Coaster! The Sky Coaster is a large swing-like ride that brings riders up 100 feet in the air, and then drops them to swing at speeds reaching a whopping 100 miles per hour.

Downwind Sails Watersports

Have you ever wanted to go parasailing? There is no better place to fly high up in the air above the ocean than in Myrtle Beach! At Downwind Sails, you can cross parasailing off your bucket list, as well as many other fun activities. Spend your day on the ocean by booking adventures like jet skiing, banana boating, sailboat rides, sea life excursions, stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, and surfing.

Express Watersports

4042 US-17 BUS, Murrells Inlet, SC 29576

Sure, you can do a lot of the same things at Express Watersports that you can do at Downwind Sails Watersports, but one thing that sets Express Watersports apart from other watersports companies in the area is that they offer Scuba Diving and Free Diving. If you’ve ever been interested in learning how to scuba dive, then you must check out Express Watersports’ several scuba diving programs where you can learn the sport in a pool or in open water.

Go on an adventure among the treetops at Go Ape Zipline and Treetop Adventure! Located in North Myrtle Beach, Go Ape is a great bucket list activity for those who want to test their bravery of conquering several ropes courses as well as ziplines. Make your way through several daunting bridges and obstacles on the ropes courses (don’t worry; you won’t fall) before soaring through the woods and over lakes on the exciting ziplines!

Kokopelli Surf Camp

If you’re one of those people who has the need for speed, then head on over to the Myrtle Beach Speedway for the ultimate bucket list adventure. Myrtle Beach Speedway offers the opportunity to drive a real NASCAR racecar by yourself! If that’s too extreme for you, then you can always opt to do a NASCAR ride along, or take a spin in a Pace Car. Whichever you choose, you will definitely have a blast.

Myrtle Beach Thrill Rides

1201 N Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

The name says it all; these rides aren’t for the faint of heart! Myrtle Beach Thrill Rides boasts three very scary rides, along with three family-friendly rides. For your bucket list adventure, skip the family-friendly rides and go straight for the thrill. The SlingShot will shoot you high up into the air, well, like a slingshot, and you will most likely scream at the top of your lungs, but it’s worth it! Riders on the Skyscraper will spin you 170 feet in the air at speeds up to 60 miles per hour.  And finally, guests on the Air Strike are seated back to back in free spinning vehicles. As the ride spins, so do you. Sounds like fun, right?!

Wild Water & Wheels

910 Highway 17 S, Myrtle Beach, SC 29575
from 19

Wild Water & Wheels is home to a variety of water slides, water features, go-karts, rides, mini-golf, and more. The real thrill here, however, lies in the exhilarating speed slides. For a true bucket list adventure, head straight for the Triple Dip, the Side Winder, the Serpentine, and the Free Fall Cliff Dive.
