“Over the years we’ve added more slides, but it retains that same old-school, nostalgic, ‘90s feel,” Christina says of the park.
Their family couldn’t resist— and installed go-kart tracks as well, inspiring the parks’s slogan, “Cool down in the water, heat up on the track.”
“This park is great for families because we have kiddie attractions: Wally’s Lagoon; a kiddie pool; and Wee Kids Water World,” Christina says. “There are lots of little slides— it’s a great place to bring the smaller kids and give them hours of things to do.”
The park has food and beverage options and offers cabana rentals so families can comfortably make a day of it. Wild Water is open until 8 on Fridays for Friday Family Fun; they also have Sunday Fundays and Manic Mondays with special pricing.
Myrtle Waves is another family-oriented water park under the Lazarus umbrella, but with many options for thrill-seekers. Lazarus Group purchased the park in 2017, revamped it, and turned it into a full-fledged park that truly offers something for everyone, at every stage of life. It is the largest water park in the state, featuring twenty-two slides and attractions across twelve water rides, with 1.2 million gallons of water.
Some of their rides include Rockin Ray, Arooba Tooba, Tsunami!, Night Flight, a lazy river, a wave pool and a FlowRider— an attraction that gives you the experience and thrill of what it is like to surf on a wave.
