The Funplex Breaks Ground on Myrtle Beach's Newest Amusement Park
Friday, November 20th, 2020
A transformation is taking place to the parking lot located at 1405 North Ocean Boulevard between 14th and 15th Avenue. Just steps from the beach, sitework is set to begin on the all-new Funplex Myrtle Beach .
A big punch in a compact footprint, The Funplex Myrtle Beach was thoughtfully designed to maximize every square foot. Tropically themed, Myrtle Beach’s newest edition will feature seven family-thrill rides surrounding a walk-up bar and restaurant.
Designed for families and thrill seekers alike, rides will be themed to match the Grand Strand beach vibe and include the tallest, interactive 360° flying jet ride on the market, and first-of-its-kind in North America.
Facing Ocean Avenue, Off-the-Coast Beach Bar and Grill, Funplex Myrtle Beach’s new bar and restaurant, will feature signature food and drink options just steps from the beach. This two-sided, walk-up bar and restaurant will offer 8 domestic and local draft beers, custom frozen drinks and traditional bar and seafood options.
“The Funplex Myrtle Beach has been a long time in the making” said Funplex CEO Brian Williams. “And we are excited to finally break ground on our next generation of family fun!”
The general contractor selected for the new amusement park is family owned and Conway, SC based Chancel HRT, Inc. The architect is Nathan Rapp of Insight Design Architects, LLC with engineering and design work provided by Myrtle Beach based Development Resource Group, LLC.
Rezoned as an “amusement zone” last year, The Funplex design received Myrtle Beach Community Appearance Board approval in June and began site work last week with plans to complete construction and open in Spring 2021.
