Take your Myrtle Beach vacation to the next level with a high-flying adventure at Radical Ropes Adventure Park, the ultimate place to zipline, rope-climb and more in the Myrtle Beach area.
Located on the south end of Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach, only blocks away from Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort, Radical Ropes Adventure Park provides a haven for extreme-sports enthusiasts and gives brave souls a chance to try something different during their Grand Strand getaways. The five-acre park offers activities that are safe and fun for the whole family.
Radical Ropes Adventure Park's unique attractions include ziplines, ropes courses and climbing walls, where adults and kids 11 and over (who met height requirements) can test their skills and show their stuff while suspended up to 70 feet above the ground. The special harness system and trained and experienced guides make the activities as enjoyable and safe as possible.
For younger, shorter and less adventurous patrons, Radical Ropes offers a special kiddie course where ages 4 to 10 can take part in the action without any danger or intimidation. Watch the little ones climb walls and work their way through miniature ropes courses while loved ones shout words of encouragement. The miniature golf course and arcade also offer entertainment.
But the main attractions are the more extreme venues, such as the eight zipline options available for patrons who want to experience the thrill of flight. The courses allow passengers to zip through the wooded tree tops at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. The safety equipment and trained guides ensure a safe but wild ride.
The Aerial Adventure Park offers a series of ropes obstacle courses that challenge patrons to weave their way through the layout and complete the course in specified time. Three unique courses present patrons with different problems to solve while suspended from as high as 55 feet off the ground. Special safety harnesses allow patrons to focus on the task without fear.
For children ages 4-10, the Kids Zip gives kids the chance to face similar challenges in a safe environment. Positioned only 10-15 feet high, the kids ziplines are closely monitored by staff and parents. Guests who prefer to keep their feet firmly planted in terra firma can putt-putt around the mini-golf course or get adventurous via virtual reality in the arcade.
Radical Ropes is one of several ropes courses and ziplines to spring up on the Grand Strand in recent years. If you are looking for something slightly different, try these extreme spots:
* Adrenaline Adventure Park: Located in the heart of downtown Myrtle Beach on the former Pavilion site, this attraction allows patrons to zip and climb with an ocean view. Twin five-story towers are connected by cables that stretch across a span of more than the length of a football field. Patrons strap in and travel at speeds of up to 40 mph while looking out over the sea.
* Go Ape Treetop Adventure: Many outdoors enthusiasts prefer a more natural setting for ziplining and ropes-climbing, and Go Ape has them covered. Located in a wooded section of the North Myrtle Beach Park & Complex, Go Ape offers dozens of obstacles, such as bridges, Tarzan swings, rope ladders and five different zips. It all adds up to more than 2,400 feet of hang time. The big finale features a scenic zip across a 50-acre lake.
* Soar + Explore: This Broadway at the Beach attraction has a zipline and ropes course at Myrtle Beach's most popular venue. The 1,000-foot zipline crosses Lake Broadway at 50-feet above the water, and the obstacle ropes course includes more than 3,000 ropes and cables, two rock-climbing walls, and kids-sized obstacle courses for a nice adrenaline kick at Broadway.
