Family Kingdom is adding a couple of new rides for the coming season. The following excerpt is from screamscape.com


2013 - Four New Rides - (1/23/13) Family Kingdom, the amusement park just across the street from the Myrtle Beach shoreline, will add four new attractions for the 2013 season, as well as rename the water park across the street as “Splashes”. The new rides coming will include the Twist ‘n’ Shout wild mouse coaster, and three flat rides Kite Flyer, Flying Tigers and Frog Hopper. No official word yet on who is making the new coaster, but I would be willing to bet that this is the same Twist ‘n’ Shout that Magic Springs had listed for sale not long ago.

Googled the twist and shout - http://goo.gl/PdHO9

Looks like many people weren't happy with the ride and complained about the rough ride and getting bruises from it.
I hope they fix it up if this is it.

Thanks for sharing this information, phroggy. Every year, people wonder "What's new?" You just helped to get 2013 off to a good start! :cool:

Glad to see the investment !

Unfortunately the "mouse-style" coasters are not my favorites.... Hard Rock had a similar style as well as Hershey Park. Too many sharp turns and end up feeling like your ribs are bruised. Ribs are for BBQ, not bruising !
