Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum – See a roller coaster built using more than 30,000 matchsticks, a vampire killing kit, and other memorable oddities housed in a building that was heavily damaged by a hurricane; or so it seems! Ripley’s building is just as curious as the items housed within.

Alligator Adventure – One of South Carolina’s most outstanding tourist attractions and one of the largest facilities for reptile life in the world, it is a 15-acre park with hundreds of species of reptiles as well as other exotic animals including a variety of birds and mammals such as Chilean flamingos and red kangaroos. Find yourself face to face with nature’s fiercest and most beautiful animals on the planet. You will also see gator handlers coax the 10-, 15- and 20-foot prehistoric predators out of the water for a chicken dinner. Alligator Adventure is also famous for its snake house displaying deadly, venomous snakes from around the world and native to the Carolinas as well as pythons, boas and various species of vipers.
The Haunted Adventure – Experience art animatronics, high-tech special effects and live actors who will give you the fright of your life. According to the story, the building that houses the Haunted Adventure was formerly a factory run by two men who mysteriously disappeared in the late 1800s. The local folks avoided the place associating horrific events with the building. New owners purchased the factory daring those who are brave of heart to explore and see what they can find within the building. Take a journey inside the dark building and hear yourself scream at every turn, scared of what might be lurking around the next darkened corner. You will never forget The Haunted Adventure at Myrtle Beach and what it’s like to be chased by some unknown entity in the darkened bowels of the haunted factory!
Zombie Zone Presented by Nightmare Haunted House – This mysterious dark attraction continues to horrify tourists and locals alike with over 4,000 square feet of terror established in the mid 1980’s. This is the place where horror plays hide and seek with the reluctant dreamer whose worst nightmares and evil dreams become reality. As you go in and out of the darkness, the morbid, raspy grunts and twisted moans of the undead will cause you to shiver in terror as you wonder where they are coming from. You don’t know what lies above, below, or beyond as you wonder if you will escape with your life.
