I was only here for about 2 hours but I rode the Hurricane 5 times. Here's my review

Hurricane: Category 5 - 3/5
This is a ruff coaster but is a fun ride. I wish they could of made the coaster longer but it was a good ride anyways. Sit in the front on this one.

Laps - 5

Crazy Mouse - 0/5
Don't even ride this. "Can I have my kidney back?"
:)

There was absolutely no line and every ride was a walk on! Had a fun time but not a lot to do there. But go here anyways if you're going to Myrtle Beach.

Hurricane is a tough coaster to marathon cause it can be a bit wild and rough :). Everyone going to Myrtle Beach needs to not forget the Swamp Fox, I found it as good or better than Hurricane. They are both great.

It's not all that rough all the time, the Hurricane that is. Sometimes it is better than others, but so are most. It's not that short, either, IMO. After riding it about ten times, though, you start feeling tired. It is tough to marathon. Front seat's cool, the fronts of all the cars are decent. Swamp Fox is much better, especially this season for some reason. The back was so insane last trip over, my wife won't ride in the back, the only coaster to scare her. The front was giving floater air over and over, you can get speed and Gs on the Hurricane, but no floating like that! We've riden that ride for years, and a few years intensely, and this year something is up. BTW, it's fairly expensive to get ride passes for both. To ride the Hurricane one time will cost you $5! Ride pass is $21(coupons?), and the Mouse is awesome! At FK, go into Friendly's and get coupons, you'll need them. *** This post was edited by p_c_r on 7/19/2001. ***

What's the weather like down there in the winter? I know someone with a place down there and he said I could use it some time this winter... does Hurricane run in Jan, Feb, Mar? Is it closed seasonally?

When I went to MB in late April, the Pavillion was only open like on Thursday and Friday evenings, so I guess it might be open seasonally or maybe weekends? I'm really not sure.

March they open for weekends on Friday at 4, Saturday/Sunday 1-8. They are not open after 8 until the week after Memorial Day because of the bikers wrecking the city's traffic. I do not think there is a February day they open for. The weather's never too cold that time of year, but it isn't exactly Spring, either! We are exactly in the middle, there are days that would be oh so perfect, but it would be stupid of them to try to open because the few really cold days scare everyone off. The HOB is about it during the winter, have fun.

The Swamp Fox is at Family Kingdom, which is only a little ways down from the Pavillion. You can easily see Family Kingdom's mammoth ferris wheel from Hurricane. If you have trouble finding it ask someone at the hotel. Also of note is Myrtle Beach Grand Prix, which has a jr. coaster and a Reverchon Spinning Mouse. If you need photos of the three parks check my site :)

Starcoaters, I never see the spinning mouse running, it's always stationary, why do they need it if they aren't using it much. We've never gotten on it. Something to note, though, South of the Border on I95 has added one to its' newly remodeled PedroLand Park, it looks very attractive lit from the road at night, and if you know this place, it's just different:), http://www.pedroland.com.

As for rougness, you'll ride one time and be happy to have received such a smooth ride only to try a different seat and feel bashed:), it's not that bad, though. I guess it's the forces, after a few rides, it makes you tired, it's not that it's painful, it just takes something out of you. The Swamp Fox tosses you way harder than the Hurricane could ever think of. Third seat's good, so's every seat in the back car except for the very back seat, which I have to ride alone in and hold on for one point, but the back of the first car is one of the smoother spots. In the back, sometimes you feel like the air is unenjoyable because you're banging into the back of the seat, your butt it'n given enough time to go down before it's dragged out again. You can walk back and forth between these coasters, I've done it before. Myrtle's not that big, it doesn't matter what hotel you're staying in, no excuses, ride the Swamp Fox. The ride op is an incredible guy and we always are entertained talking to him. Although, that turn before the brakes, it used to be dark there?

PS-FK has this funny logflume, I thought we were dead when we topped the first hill and there was no water there! Really funny, if you've seen it, you know what I mean....... *** This post was edited by p_c_r on 7/22/2001. ***
