Myrtle Beach is one of the top family vacation destinations. There are tons of attractions for all ages and entertainment for everyone in the family. And that includes the teenagers in the group. Family vacations can be tough for teens because they’re craving independence – but aren’t quite old enough to explore the Grand Strand on their own. When you book your vacation with Brittain Resorts in Myrtle Beach, there are plenty of activities for teenagers to enjoy! Here are the Top Ten Myrtle Beach Activities for Teenagers:
1. Shark Wake Park
Is your teen into extreme sports? Then you’ll definitely want to check out Shark Wake Park! They can grab a wakeboard and enjoy being pulled around on the water at this unique cable park. Once they’ve mastered the basics – there are jumps and platforms for those that want to test their skills!
2. Broadway Grand Prix
Teenagers love to drive – especially those that don’t have their permits yet. But you don’t need a driver’s license to race around Broadway Grand Prix! They can hop in a go-kart and enjoy speeding around seven different race tracks. The best part – they don’t even need a parent to ride with them – they can race around on their own.
3. Family Kingdom
This amusement park has plenty of rides for all ages. Your teen can explore the park on their own, while you have the peace of mind they’re having a fun, safe time. From the roller coaster to the log flume, there are tons of rides perfect for the ‘big kids’ in the group.
4. Beach Rider Jet Boat at Broadway at the Beach
For those teens that love going fast – they’ll go nuts over the Beach Rider Jet Boat at Broadway at the Beach. An exhilarating attraction, they’ll be screaming in delight as the speed boat flies around the water, cutting corners and spinning around at top speed!
Everyone needs to disconnect while on vacation, including teenagers. If you’re looking for a way to peel your teen away from the games on their smartphone – entice them with a trip to the arcade. Whether they’re playing air hockey, shooting hoops, or racking up points on skee ball, they’ll love the friendly competition and playing real-life games for prizes!
6. Surf Lessons
Hang ten! For those teens that enjoy boogie boarding and splashing around in the ocean, set them up with a surf lesson with Kokopelli Surf Camp or Jack’s Surf Lessons. They’ll learn the basics of paddling, popping up, balancing, and catching a wave. One wave surfed to shore on its own and they’re sure to be hooked!
Searching for a thrill ride? Your teen can soar to new heights while parasailing over the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. Towed behind a boat, they’ll coast along and get a bird’s-eye view of the Grand Strand.
8. Hot Summer Nights
As the sun goes down, the fun heats up on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk! Happening all summer long, this evening event is fun for the whole family. There’s live entertainment, fireworks, and certain activities geared just toward teens.
9. Myrtle Waves Water Park
Teens love to make a big splash and Myrtle Waves Water Park is the perfect spot to get wet and wild! The biggest water park in South Carolina, Myrtle Waves has tons of water slides and attractions that are perfect for their age group. From slipping and sliding down the Rockin Ray and Arooba Tooba to testing their balancing skills on the FlowRider – this water park is sure to provide hours of entertainment for your teen. Plus with our Brittain Rewards program, you’ll receive a free adult all-day pass to the park.
10. Escape Room
For the teen gamers in the group, take them to experience the excitement of an escape game. This team-based activity involves your family discovering clues and solving puzzles in order to escape the room you’re trapped in. But hurry – the clock is ticking and your group only has an hour to figure out how to get out!
