Some Myrtle Beach attractions probably won’t ever change, and many do to keep up with the times. In 2011, though, Myrtle Beach should have a nice little addition to it’s already abundant list of attractions and things to do.
Wonder Works – Museum? Education? or More?
Wonder Works combines science, education and entertainment where you can explore more than 100 exhibits that are just as fun as they are educational. Ever been blown away by a 74-mph hurricane wind? Maybe land the NASA space shuttle. How about lying on a bed of nails or piloting a fighter jet Let’s not forget about the lazer tag. You will immediately be intrigued just when you see the outside of the building. It looks like an up-side down museum! WonderWorks opens this spring at Broadway at the Beach!
SkyWheel in Myrtle Beach, SC
Hopefully to be finished in May, The SkyWheel Myrtle Beach. Located alongside the newly opened one mile plus Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, this oceanfront attraction will stand 18 stories high (196 feet). We are talking about 42 glass gondolas that can hold up to six people. Don’t worry, they are glassed-in, and temperature controlled. No dangling feet here!
Legends in Concert – March 11th Opening Slated
After spending over $1 million, the new Legends in Concert theater has added 600 new seats. But check this out… not any of the seats are more than 50 feet from the stage! Couple that with new state of the art features, and VIP table booths for the ultimate experience. The opening night performance at Legends in Concert in their new theater at Broadway at the Beach will be March 11.
Pirates Voyage – Coming in June
Say goodbye to Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede. This spring will finish a $11 million dollar transformation into Pirates Voyage. (They say it should open sometime in June). This new attraction features a Buccaneer Battle with a Pirate Feast you don’t want to miss. Experience the wonder, excitement and spirit of the pirates who docked on the shores of Myrtle Beach! Don’t worry though, the show features new music by Dolly Parton and Mark Brymer.
