Heading down Kings Highway on the Grand Strand, you will quickly pass by a small amusement park called Family Kingdom. Many people pass by it without a second look. Why is that? One reason could be because it is usually only open in the evenings from April through October so most of the day it appears empty.
Admission to the park is free. There are no gates or turnstiles, you simply walk right into the park. You only pay for the rides you want to by purchasing tickets but can also purchase an unlimited ride wristband. Bright, cheerful colors abound, creating an inviting atmosphere.
One feature that stands out is the classic wooden coaster, Swamp Fox. It provides a great ride for the entire family and the quality of the ride is something that you don’t expect to find in a park this size.
As the sun sets the colorful lights start glowing setting a great atmosphere for a fun family evening.
The area really lights up as day turns into night.
We had a great time and found Family Kingdom to be a good value and fun for the entire family!
