Need for Speed? Try Myrtle Beach’s NASCAR SpeedPark
Looking to switch it up a little bit and add some action to your relaxing Myrtle Beach vacation? Maybe it’s time to hit the NASCAR SpeedPark for some wheel-spinning fun!
One thing families love about the Myrtle Beach’s NASCAR SpeedPark is that it appeals to Mom, Dad, the kids, Grandma, Grandpa, well, you get the idea! There’s something for dads, moms, teens and even grandparents, from longer road go-kart courses with hairpin turns to the short-and-slick courses you can race through just like the pros do. In total, there are seven go-kart courses to choose from.
The appeal of NASCAR SpeedPark goes way beyond go-karts. Try the hair-raising sky-coaster, which pulls riders more than 100 feet in the air before dropping down in a freefall! There’s also a 20,000 square foot arcade for those who’d rather play skeeball or race on a video screen than on a track.
If that’s not enough, there’s a carousel with miniature stock cars and motorcycles, a slick spin teacup-style ride, batting cages, a miniature train, an outdoor rock-climbing wall and two 18-hole miniature golf courses from which to choose!
New for 2013, NASCAR SpeedPark announced it now offers 5/8th sprint-style go-karts on its Thunder Road track. The track is a half-mile oval that only allows one kart at a time so those with a need for speed can really go all out. And the new karts are lower to the ground, thus faster than your average go-kart—in fact, riders can go so fast on the track, a valid driver’s license is required for this particular ride.
“Thunder Road allows our guests to see if they have what it takes to be a sprint‐style driver on this fun and challenging track,” said Lakeisha Dukes of NASCAR SpeedPark.
