Top 5 Indoor Activities for Kids in Myrtle Beach

If you and your family need a break from fun in the sun, there are plenty of other forms of entertainment indoors to keep the entire family amused while vacationing in Myrtle Beach.


1. Rockin’ Jump The Ultimate Trampoline Park

If you’re looking for a place where your kids can literally bounce off the walls, look no further than Rockin’ Jump. This place is wall-to-wall trampolines! Ninja Challenge Course – This course takes precision, balance, and lots of coordination, as your kids have to master the trapeze to the cargo net and then make it to the tube swing. But it doesn’t end there – they then have to continue through the swinging rings, hanging discs, padded logs, and finally the unbalanced bridge. They’ll have fun competing to see who can make it through the fastest without losing his/her balance and falling into the foam pit below. Stunt Bag – Have your kids ever wondered what it’s like to do those stunt tricks in an action movie? Well, the stunt bag gives your kids that sensation as they can kick-flip and twist and jump their way onto an air-filled stunt bag. Vertical Ops – Your kids can challenge themselves to the Vertical Ops Climbing Wall, racing and climbing their way to the top. The first one to ring the buzzer at the top wins! Slam Dunk Zone – This area gives your kids the “ups” to slam dunk like an NBA pro. X-Beam – Two kids can choose padded lances and battle them out on the beam while trying to maintain their balance. The first one to knock their opponent off the beam into the foam pit wins and is named the X-Beam Champion. Dodgeball Arena – This area brings dodgeball to another level as balls are flying and bouncing and your kids are jumping and dodging.
