North Myrtle Beach, SC (WLTX) - A much anticipated new floating water park opens this weekend along South Carolina's Grand Strand.
Shark Wake Park's floating aqua park in North Myrtle Beach begins taking visitors Saturday, June 3.
It will be located at the freshwater lake at the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex. It's another amenity that's part of the larger Shark Wake Park.
The floating playground features an obstacle course that will be situated on a portion of the lake. It will include a series of inflatable slides, runways, jumping pillows, and bouncers, all connected together and floating in the lake. It also offers swings, ramps, ladders, trampolines, slides, wiggle bridges, and more.
Crews are still putting the finishing touches on the structure, but video that's being streamed on Facebook showed it was nearly complete by Thursday night.
The park is holding a "Welcome Back Summer Party" as part of the opening from 12 p.m. to dusk. It will feature cornhole competitions, big air contests, and drinks.
Further details on the event, Shark Wake Park, and their other attractions can be found on their website.
