4 Extreme Activities to Try in Myrtle Beach…If You Dare

Looking for a fun thing to do in Myrtle Beach to reinforce your status as the daredevil type?


The Grand Strand has plenty of adrenaline-pumping activities to do that. Is it high speeds, high heights, or a combination of the two? Or something different altogether? You’re in the right place. These are the kinds of things we do on dares, especially on vacation.

What makes us adrenaline junkies?

Skydiving, extreme anything, and hazardous lines of work. They’re all signs a person needs a little extra spark in their lives. Excitement, even from fear, can trigger the hormone adrenaline. That brings an incredible feeling. It stems from our fight or flight response, and although it’s a thrill, it isn’t for everyone.

Thrilling Things to do in Myrtle Beach

Take the Escape River Island Challenge

If you’re a fan of escape rooms and shows such as “Amazing Race” and “Survivor,” this is the adventure for you. It’s an escape unto itself on the Waccamaw River. This outfit also offers excursions that are less intense for mellower times.


We also recommend the Kayak Island Tour. Explore 48 acres of private island land with hammocks, swings, and trails.

We also recommend dodgems bumper cars. All the fun of a demolition derby with plenty of safety.

Broadway Grand Prix

This recreation complex has indoor and outdoor thrills. Choose from go-karts, rock climbing, and even stuff for the little ones. Where else can you go to get your competitive spirit going, while taking time out for the kids to get into it, too? There are seven tracks for various skill levels. They include the Grand Prix Pro Track, High Bank Oval, and Speed Racer.

We also recommend season pass packages. For one low price, you can race every time you visit the Grand Strand.

Take a Dive with Coastal Scuba

Divemasters recommend this outfit for excursions, based on equipment, safety, and more. You’ll encounter seldom-seen aquatic life, as well as incredible wrecks. Explore the Sherman. It’s a 200-foot, post-Civil War blockade runner 6 miles from Little River Inlet.

We also recommend the Charleston Tug. It’s an artificial reef in 62 feet of water off the North Myrtle Beach coast that attracts an array of wildlife.
