Here is a sneak peak at the locations of the new additions for Planet Snoopy

Brand new family-friendly rides include: 

•Kite Eating Tree–Charlie Brown’s kite is stuck in a tree again, can you help get it down? On this family ride, guests will be propelled to the top of the tower and bounce down to the platform as they experience sensations of weightlessness. 

•Sally’s Sea Plane–Join Sally as she soars through the air high above the sea! Kids and their parents are in store for an adventure with a trip on Sally’s airplane. Take a trip round-and-round on this giant plane as it rotates and rises into the air. 

•Peanuts™500–Pick your car and rev up the engine with the Peanuts™ crew on this fun car ride that is the perfect size for your little racers. Start your engines and hit the track in race cars designed for parents and children to ride together as they move in a circle and whip around the corner on a closed track. 

This latest expansion to the 14-acre kid’s area brings the total number of rides in Planet Snoopy to 20. All of the rides are designed for families to experience together. 

We met Snoopy!

WonderWorks At Broadway At The Beach Myrtle Beach

We visited Wonder Works at Broadway at the Beach at Myrtle Beach and had SO much fun! I would highly recommend that you visit this fun and educational amusement park. There is something for everyone here! Wonder Works has over 50,000 sq ft of "edutainment". There is an indoor glow-in-the-dark ropes course and an outdoor ropes course for those that are brave! There are different "Wonder Zones" throughout the amusement park. My children really loved the Space Discovery zone and the Natural Disaster Zone where you can experience first hand hurricane strength winds. 

I could recommend allowing at least 3-4 hours to experience everything that Wonder Works has to offer. Admission is good for the whole day, so you can visit in the morning then grab lunch or do some shopping at Broadway At The Beach and return. Admission to Wonder Works varies but the VIP combo ticket is $39.99/adult and $36.99/child and includes all WonderWorks exhibits, 6D motion theater, indoor glow-in-the-dark ropes course, laser tag and Soar & Explore outdoor ropes course & zip line. *Tip* The Soar & Explore outdoor ropes course is really cool at night time! WonderWorks is open 365 days a year from 9 am until 10 pm. The outdoor ropes course is open from noon until 10 pm. 

The lobby of WonderWorks is quite unique! If you look up at the ceiling you will see the upside down room!

The Bubble lab is super fun but a little messy :) 

This is my 5 year old in the space suit in the "Space Discovery Zone"

The indoor ropes course was so much fun! My children completed the entire course! I was surprised they were so brave, they begged to do the course a second time. 

The indoor ropes course consist of many obstacles including a single balance type beam. 

My children told me that WonderWorks was the highlight of their week at Myrtle Beach! They hope to return again next summer!

The Carolina Opry At Myrtle Beach Review

My family visited The Carolina Opry located in North Myrtle Beach a few weeks ago and we had THE best time! My children (ages 9, 6 and 5) were so into the show and truly enjoyed it as much as my husband and I did! We arrived thirty minutes prior to the show to pick up our tickets and purchase popcorn and drinks. The concessions are really nice and I would recommend arriving early so you can grab your popcorn. The show is so entertaining that you won't want to miss a minute. The show is a two hour show including high energy music, comedy and dance. My children really enjoyed the music and dancing. The highlight of the show for my girls was when Elsa made a surprise appearance singing a few of her well known songs from the movie Frozen. The Carolina Opry show features the famous cloggers "All That" who were featured on America's Got Talent. They are amazing! The show also features Nashville's recording artist, Brad Long. He is absolutely fantastic!

Katy Perry's song "Firework" was a big hit for my kids!

The cast is incredibly talented

Elsa even appeared for a few well known songs from "Frozen"

The Carolina Opry show is rated as the top attraction at Myrtle Beach and I can totally see why!! We hope to return again next summer. My children are still talking about how much fun the show was. If you only have the time and/or money to do one show at Myrtle Beach this is it! The cast is incredibly talented and the show is really entertaining. I would highly recommend The Carolina Opry.

To purchase tickets for The Carolina Opry visit their website. Ticket prices start at just $10.70 for children (ages 3-16 years old) and $27.90 for adults for general admission.
