MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A Tennessee company that operates a family amusement park in the Smokey Mountains is planning a similar park in Myrtle Beach.
The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports (http://bit.ly/1s6q6zP ) that the company that operates The Track in Pigeon Forge wants to open a Myrtle Beach location to be operating by the end of 2016.
The proposal calls for an elevated go-cart track, bumper boats, an arcade, a shop and a Ferris wheel. The site is on about 6 acres along Restaurant Row at the north end of Myrtle Beach that the company would lease from the local Shriners.
The Myrtle Beach Planning Commission is holding a public hearing next month on the project.
The Track Family Recreation Center also operates a family amusement park in Destin, Florida.
