My kids love being outside and every time we drive past the “enormous floating playground” they ask to go! Shark Wake Park on the freshwater lake at the North Myrtle Beach Part and Sports Complex is what they are referring to. Since it’s Summer Break and my husband was also off last week we finally decided to give it a go!
There might not be a more fun way to spend some time out on the water than this floating water park. You can use the giant aqua park as a giant water-based obstacle course or as a place to chill and watch your family members run around. It’s the largest inflatable, floating obstacle course on the East Coast. Covering an acre of water, the aqua park can hold up to 120 people per hour. It’s the place to be to jump, play and climb this summer.
The inflatable aquatic jungle gym designed by the German company Wibit, which has opened floating aquatic playgrounds all over the world. The park features different areas where you can climb, slide and monkey around as you splash through the park. It sits right next to the wakeboarding cable system, which looks pretty awesome too! South Carolina’s first continuous wakeboarding park opened by Greg Norman, Jr., the son legend Greg Norman. The park pulls riders by a high-tech pulley system instead of a boat. We didn’t try that this time…definitely on our list for a trip in the future!
Aqua Park visitors must be 7 years old or older, at least 45” tall, and a good swimmer to participate. All participants must go through a 15-minute orientation/instruction and a Coast Guard Approved life-jacket will be provided and must be worn at all times. Then it’s time for some FUN! My daughters are 9 and 11, they absolutely loved the park. My whole family came and everyone enjoyed it! From the youngest to the oldest.
I think It was very reasonably priced, especially if you add a second session. The course was big enough for a big group and there was a variety of different obstacles to make for a fun afternoon.
So my question is…Do you like bouncing around on BIG Inflatable moving objects? AND Do you LIKE getting super wet? If this sounds like you (or your kids) then a visit to Shark Wake Park is a must on your next trip to Myrtle Beach! And if you are local and have been debating about going…its definitely worth it. If nothing else it will definitely wear the kids out and allow you to justify putting your feet up for the rest of the day. Sounds like a plan to me!
We received a complimentary visit BUT all views, opinions and photos in this article are my own.
