New ropes course, zipline, family fun center set for Myrtle Beach SC

Construction on the Radical Ropes Course Family Entertainment Center is expected to begin in February in Myrtle Beach SC.

Initially planned to be ropes course with several ziplines, developers have expanded the attraction to entertain everyone in the family, property owner Buddy Lindsay said on Tuesday. He said the course, which will be at 1900 S. Kings Highway between 17th and 19th avenues South, is expected to open May 1.

The attraction will include five physical components: ziplines, aerial challenges, “sky rider” bicycles and rowboats around the course perimeter, a low ropes course, and mini golf, Lindsay said. It will have a theme of “Myrtle Beach’s natural high.”

Ziplines will descend from 85 feet in the air. At 55 feet, participants can engage in about 30 physical activities such as walking across beams or ropes in the aerial challenges. The challenges could take about 3.5 hours, Lindsay said.

Users can ride around the facility’s 1,400 foot perimeter on bicycles or rowboats for the “sky rider” experience at 25 feet in the air. At 10 feet, there will be a low ropes course for children ages 6 and under.

And Lindsay said crews will improve the 36-hole mini golf course in the southwest corner for those who prefer to stay on the ground.
