A new amusement park is set to open in Myrtle Beach.

A new amusement park is set to open in Myrtle Beach. The Funplex amusement park will feature a tropical theme and will include seven rides with a mix of kiddie and thrill rides, as well as a bar and restaurant. The new park is located on North Ocean Boulevard between 14th and 15th avenues. You can already see the rides if you pass by but officials say they’re still working to get them hooked up electrically and sidewalks still have to be poured. The park’s CEO, Brian Williams says the new downtown addition has brought at least 100 jobs to the area. As of right now, the park is scheduled to open on May 3rd.
