Visitors get an in-depth glimpse into the way the human body operates and the functions of each organ as scientifically preserved specimens are displayed. The exhibit will be open on Saturday and Sunday.
Great New Attractions:
The Pirates Voyage opens June 3rd and who isn't excited? Representatives of the show say we should expect a 15 foot deep, 750 thousand gallon lagoon, and 3 full-sized ships, complete with pirates, battling over who will take the treasure.
"We'll have performers emerging from the water, they'll be in the sky above the folks in the arena and diving into the water, and of course, they'll be a battle between pirates," said Owens of the new show.
The 190-foot Myrtle Beach SkyWheel is currently under construction downtown and the mammoth attraction promises a bird’s-eye view of the town and ocean. Scheduled for completion in May, the largest Ferris wheel east of the Mississippi River will offer nightly light shows to add some beauty to the fun. Coast is approximately $12 for an 8-12 min ride
WonderWorks is an “amusement park for the mind,” combining education and entertainment in over 100 hands-on exhibits that will spark the imagination and stimulate the mind. Visitors to the attraction will enjoy a variety of experiences including being blown away by 74 mile per hour hurricane-force winds, maneuvering the controls of a NASA spacecraft to land the shuttle, lying on a bed of 3,500 nails, piloting a fighter jet, designing and riding a 360 degree virtual roller coaster, playing virtual sports and competing in a game of lazer-tag.
