Developer pursuing Myrtle Beach park is no stranger to industry

At age 15, Jon Binkowski got a job at SeaWorld in San Diego to stroll the grounds all summer, sweating inside his towering Pete the Penguin costume and greeting hoards of Mexican schoolchildren. After a number of successful jobs in the industry, he's now pursuing the development of a new park at Myrtle Beach.

I read that people think an amusement park there would not succeed. And my question is how could it not? Myrtle Beach is one of the most popular vacation locations and all it is missing is an amusement park. The Pavilion and Family Kingdom are okay but MB lacks the BIG coasters. Wilmington is right up the road ( where i am from ) and everyone I know want's a park there. There family's go there on weekends and the parents shop and the kids get to follow. How Fun! JK. If there was an amusement park just drop em off and pick em up later. Thats what i think.

jkpark's avatar Yeah,you would have to go to Carowinds or SFOG. Myrtle Beach has come a long way. I remember going there back in the 1980's, and now that town has really grown. However, I would not build a park there. I think Myrtle BEach should just stick to their water parks.
