This is a fun spot where live impersonators revive both living and dead artists. There is no auto-tune, 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.

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.

Children and adults will find exhibits and displays, simulators, physical tests of endurance and games of fun. Experience the force of 84-mph winds in the Hurricane Shack, generate electricity by bike pedaling, lay on a bed of nails, feel the 28°F water that passengers of the Titanic felt, ride a simulated roller coaster, make giant bubbles in the Bubble Lab or try your hand at landing the space shuttle.
