I am going to myrtle beach with my parents two weekends from now. i have already looked at the pavilion and family kingdom websites and they are closed. Does anyone know if any of the other small parks with rollercoasters are open.
also... if there arent roller coasters, anyone know what there is for a teenager to do?

Broadway At The Beach is a great place to go. Movies, IMAX, miniture golf, lots of food, arcades, clubs and more. 30 minutes from Myrtle Beach is Barefoot landing. There they have a S&S Turbo Shot Tower. Not sure if it will be open, but even if its not, Barefoot Landing is a great place to go. Basically the whole beach has so much stuff to do, even in the winter. You'll find something to do.

bwizzle...interesting name there, lol. you probably wont find any parks on the East Coast open this time of year, north of Wild Adventures, in Valdosta GA, which is probably a good 8 hours or more from Myrtle Beach, lol. but i encourage you to take advantage of the offseason and the lack of crowds on the Strand, you should have a great time.

Yeah, its too bad your going to miss the park openings by a couple of weeks. Broadway is fun. There's lots of good stuff to do there. They have a Sally dark ride called Treasure Hunt that is good for a spin if you like those sorts of things. I often go to Broadway and like it more than Barefoot although Barefoot is starting to add a little more and is getting better. 30 minutes to get there is kind of a stretch though. Maybe with really bad traffic. I usually make it from Broadway to Barefoot in about 15 minutes. I believe that the S&S tower has been gone for a few years now. It's at another park now and for the life of me I can't remember which one (maybe in Florida?). Down near the Pavillion they have some Ripleys stuff. The Haunted Warehouse and Museum are decent but the simulator ride they have there is a rip off. All in all, while you won't have as much fun as you would if the parks were open, you should still find plently to do.

I was there just three weeks ago, and nothing really fun to do. The seaside parks are closed as you said, and even the MB Grand Prix and its mouse was closed. The only thing we got to do were the go-karts at NASCAR, but it was freezing, so even that wasn't too fun.
Sorry, the winter in MB isn't too fun for those looking for thrills.
The Ripley's acquarium was open I believe though...

All of the Ripleys
attractions are open, including the museum, motion theater, haunted house, and Aquarium @ roadway at the Beach
Broadway and Barefoot landing are both great, they have House of Blues @ Barefoot, and Hard Rock & Planet Hollywood @ Broadway. The parks will be closed, I'd say the go-carts as well, but not for sure.
There is a lot of outlet shopping there, and some clubs (if you are into that) have teen nites as well. What is your age? If you are 18 or 19, and like to go clubbing, most clubs allow you in @ 18. I suggest Club Kryptonite if you're looking for nite life, but Broadway AT the Beach (where it is located) also has a nite club district with some pretty snazzy places for different tastes.
Myrtle Beach is fun no matter when you go. It's usually not too cold there. Gold & Mini golf are big, not sure if mini golf is opened this time of year, but Golf is.
