This Rare Footage Of A South Carolina Amusement Park Will Have You Longing For The Good Old Days

The historic Myrtle Beach Pavilion was an amusement park located at the corner of 9th and Ocean Boulevard. It was a great source of entertainment for hundreds of thousands of people who lived in or visited the Grand Strand from 1949 to 2006. Families from all across America would travel to Myrtle Beach and spend at least a day at the famous pay-per-ride park. It was closed in 2006 and is long gone from its iconic perch along this stretch of beach.

The first Myrtle Beach Pavilion was built in 1908. It was a single story building that later burned.
