This is a fun spot where live impersonators revive both living and dead artists. There is no auto-tone, no lip-synching, and no pantomime fakes, these performers hit every note of their respective superstar's hits and even impeccably emulate their moves and facial expressions. Some celebrities include Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Diana Ross, Cher, Buddy Holly, Dolly Parton, Madonna, The Blues Brothers and many others. After you see this show, you'll leave incredulous (albeit temporarily) with the idea that you really saw Elvis perform in Myrtle Beach.
The Palace Theatre is a grand auditorium which seats 2638 guests who watch performances under the dynamic lighting, large stage area and state-of-the-art sound system. The shows that take place here are usually touring troupes like Le Grand Cirque, The Magical Spirit of Ireland or Jersey Boys. There are two levels, the mezzanine and the orchestra section, and every seat provides an intimate view. Additionally, as with most shows in Myrtle Beach, they are suitable for all age-groups.
Visitors of all ages won't be able to resist this curiously odd, three-story structure that appears upside down from the outside. Entertaining, scientific and educational, the ceiling of the lobby is decorated just like the floor and it belies the fun ahead for the inquisitive. Children and adults will find exhibits and displays, simulators, physical tests of endurance and games of fun and creativity. For example, experience the force of 84-mph winds in the Hurricane Shack, generate electricity by bike pedaling, lay on a bed of nails, feel the coldness of water 28-degrees Fahrenheit that passengers of the Titanic felt, ride a simulated roller coaster ride, make giant bubbles in the Bubble Lab or try your hand at landing the shuttle. There are a few restrictions on height and footwear for certain activities. A small gift shop and food concession counter are in the lobby. - Natasha Lawrence

A magical adventure for kids eight and above, MagiQuest is a live action role playing game in which players embark on quests to solve mysteries. Armed with a special wand that activates creatures and opens treasure chests, players are rewarded with runes for completing quests, which then allows them to access more challenging quests. The game requires some thinking and problem solving, but it's never truly that difficult. The basic wands are purchased and registered to a specific player at the MagiQuest store for about USD20. The MagiQuest game requires going up and down different floors (by elevator or stairs); weekends and holidays will find plenty of kids running around. Those who have completed all the quests are known as MagiMasters, and take oaths to help others. A package example is 90 minutes of adventure time, classic wand and topper for USD35. Returning visitors with wands are USD20 for 90 minutes of play (and up). See the website for more information.
