What if there is bad weather on the day of my visit?
It is advised that you check the local forecast for the Myrtle Beach area prior to your visit. Myrtle Waves Water Park does not close slides due to rain, however in the event of thunder and lightning, attractions will be temporarily closed. Since the water park will remain open, even on rainy days, we do not offer any refunds or rain checks. Please keep in mind that if inclement weather is expected for the entire day, Myrtle Waves Water Park reserves the right to not open the facility.

Sunday is usually the slowest day for the water park and will forward you the greatest opportunity to ride the greatest number of slides.
What do I do if my party gets separated?
It is imperative that each family establish a meeting point for family and friends. It is also recommended that younger children be shown the Guest Services building upon entry into the park, as this is where any lost parents or lost children should report to be re-united with their family. However, any Myrtle Waves team member may be approached and will assist in locating lost family or friends.

Myrtle Waves is staffed with over 100 specially trained, award winning life guards. While it is the duty of the guards to ensure the safety of all Guests, we ask that parents please be mindful of their children and family members at all times. Ride safety rules are posted at each pool and slide. We request that each Guest review these thoroughly. Life jackets are provided throughout the park and their use is encouraged to provide additional safety.
