Nightmare Haunted House

The Nightmare Haunted House is the place for Myrtle Beach thrill seekers. This haunted attraction was established in the mid 1980s and has been running ever since, making a name as the East Coast’s scariest year round haunted attraction. Beware when you get close to this place on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk – zombies have been known to escape the attraction and roam the area! 

Fun Plaza 

The Fun Plaza is an open-air arcade that first opened in 1938. Players can jump from classic games like Pacman and Skee Ball to new games like HALO Fireteam Raven, all with a view of the ocean and salty breezes. This Myrtle Beach Boardwalk attraction is perfect for kids and adults alike to enjoy friendly competition and quality time together, and even take home cool prizes.
