The Pavilion Nostalgia Park has rides and games that the whole family will enjoy. After a day at the beach, golfing, or shopping, this miniature theme park is the perfect size for an evening of fun without tiring your feet. The rides were originally part of The Pavilion, a piece of Myrtle Beach history, now conveniently located at Broadway at the Beach.
Take a spin on the Mini Tea Cups, ride the Super Happy Swing (Zamperla), glide through the air on the Magic bikes, or enjoy the views from the Broadway 360 Observation Wheel at the Fun Park. In the Action Park, get dizzy on the American Swing, or defy gravity on the Moonraker 20! Take a swing on The Beast, or suspend in the air on the Wave Swinger! There are rides for all sizes at The Pavilion Nostalgia Park. Choose your horse, tiger, bird, or camel on the Herschell-Spillman Carousel, which was built in 1912. Since the 1950s, generations of children and families have ridden this beautiful antique carousel with hand-carved animals in Myrtle Beach — first at its Pavilion home and now at Broadway at the Beach. Midway-style games await your skill and luck on the main thoroughfare. Try Spill-the-Milk, Bushel Baskets, or Basketball Throw, or play your favorite video game in the arcade. Take a moment to appreciate the calliope sounds of the German Baden Band Organ. A hand-carved work of art that debuted at the 1900 Paris World Expo! Carnival food abounds with food and drink stands nestled between attractions. Fill up on hot dogs, corn dogs, popcorn, funnel cakes, and more.
Daily wristbands are available for $38.50. Individual ride tickets are $1.75 per ticket. The Broadway 360 Observation Wheel costs $10.50 per ride. There is plenty of parking around Broadway at the Beach within walking distance of the rides. The Pavilion Nostalgia Park is open throughout the year with extended hours in the summer months.
