Family Kingdom Amusement Park

Family Kingdom Amusement Park - Myrtle Beach SCHeading 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.
