“Good place to have fun”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Been coming to Jungle Rapids ever since I was a kid. I have family in the area so we were down here at all times of the year, not just the summer. It is a great place to have fun when it is a rainy or cold day or you just want some time away from the beach! As a kid, I loved the play place and the arcade; as an adult, I love the go-karts, the rock wall, and the putt-putt golf. It is definitely not like a mega-park you'd find in Myrtle Beach and it is sometimes a little dirty, but it is a great attraction alternative for families looking for something to do besides the beach or the movies. The summer can get a little crowded, but during the off season there are a lot less people. Definitely recommended.

“OK, but went during off season”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We went in mid March, so water park wasn't open yet. More like a bigger Chucky Cheese. 4 year old was only able to go in Jungle play area and play video games. Really wanted to play lazer tag with older sis, but must be 6 for lazer tag. 10 year old wanted to drive go-karts, but must be 12 for that. 10 year old did climb rock wall and liked it. We all could've played mini-golf, but no one really wanted to. But, we all had fun helping each other play the games. Good way to spend an hour or so but a bit pricey.

“Your ocean alternative”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

An adorable waterpark and amusement park for all ages. Not huge but very adequate. Mini-golf, go carts, climbing wall, arcade, laser tag, wave pool, kiddie pool park area, curvy slides and a scary slide. A great place to keep the kids busy when you just want to take a breather from the dangers of the ocean. You can close your eyes here - lots of guards. A very nice lazy river too. I always brought my son here when he was a kid every time we were in town. Great for families. Lots of tables with umbrellas and loungers. You can even take your little chair into the edge of the wave pool to keep yourself cool while enjoying the view of children having a ball. Don't miss it.

“Too expensive”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

There isnt much in the way of a waterpark and for the prices you will pay to do anything it is really worth driving to Myrtle Beach where theres real gokart tracksand water parks plus so much more.

“If You're a Kid this place is great”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is not any kind of miraculous mini Disney Land or even 10% of thyat. But if you're a kid it's a great place to come.
