Be prepared to take your taste buds on an adventure at this new Myrtle Beach restaurant, located just about a mile and half from hotel BLUE.


Radical Ropes Adventure Park | Attraction | South Myrtle Beach

Coming Soon to Myrtle Beach


Rendering of the new Hard Rock Cafe location at Broadway at the BeachThese places are not quite open yet but they are coming soon and we are excited for their arrival!



  • Broadway at the Beach is undergoing several changes including an upcoming move by Hard Rock Café to the former Broadway Louie’s location (don’t worry, Broadway Louie’s is still in the same section of Broadway, just in a different building), and the addition of some exciting new dining options including Dave & Buster’s, American Tap House as well as a new nightclub option called OZ. Plans have also been submitted for the possibility of opening up of 21,000-square-foot Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen at Broadway at the Beach.

  • Fun Warehouse, located off Hwy 544, just about a 12 minute drive south, plans to add on even more fun to their already bustling business. A multi-level indoor/outdoor go-kart track and mini-golf course is planned to open up on the property this year.

  • HighFlyer, an indoor trampoline park, is planning to open soon on George Bishop Parkway at the X Gym and will be composed of 20,000 square feet with a trampoline field, trampoline dodgeball, foam pit and more. Rockin’ Jump is another trampoline park coming to Myrtle Beach on Oak Street. Set to open sometime this spring, it will feature birthday parties, dodgeball, rock climbing and more in its 23,000 square-foot facility.
