Story Includes Photo Of Family Kingdom's Roller Coaster On Cover Of Newsday's Travel Supplement

Family Kingdom Amusement Park in Myrtle Beach, S.C. was recently featured in Newsday, Long Island's premier newspaper, as part of an article focused on Myrtle Beach.

The story included numerous photos of area attractions, including a shot of Family Kingdom's Swamp Fox wooden roller coaster, which was the cover photo for the travel supplement on Sunday, July 13. Newsday's Sunday paper has nearly 650,000 subscribers in Suffolk and Nassau counties on Long Island.

Located on Ocean Boulevard in the heart of Myrtle Beach, S.C., Family Kingdom is the area's only seaside amusement park and has been entertaining families for more than 40 years. Home of the legendary Swamp Fox wooden roller coaster, the largest Ferris wheel in the state of South Carolina and over thirty other great rides and attractions for all ages, Family Kingdom Amusement Park offers a complete amusement park experience with midway games, family entertainment and traditional park temptations such as funnel cakes, cotton candy and corndogs.

"We entertain thousands of families from the New York area each year so to have Family Kingdom featured so prominently in Newsday is quite a thrill," said Leigh Meese, president of Family Kingdom Amusement Park. "We hope the exposure the area and our park received will remind Long Islanders of the fun they have had at Family Kingdom and that they will make a trip to the park a vacation tradition."
