Airtimes Lap Bar Fun
This is an awesome coaster. The buzz bars give you tons of room for airtime. You get plenty throughout the whole coaster. It's not the smoothest coaster but that's expected from a ride this old. Overall it's a nice classic PTC.

Airtimes Lap Bar Ejectors Rattle Too short
This coaster has some absolutely insane airtime and gets a huge thumbs up from me, but if it were smoother this could be an even more awesome ride than it already is, i look past the roughness but i get why some may not be able to

Airtimes Nice surprise! Location Rattle Too short
Swamp Fox is literally the Phoenix of the Southeast. This unassuming hidden gem of a wooden coaster is located in the North end of Myrtle Beach, at a small retro amusement park called Family Kingdom. Swamp Fox was built in 1966 but was damaged severely by Hurricane Hugo in 1989, forcing the new owners to undergo a rebuild of the classic coaster. Swamp Fox has a beautiful view of the beach coming right off the chain lift, and as you round the bend you have a view of all of Family Kingdom. But then the insanity begins. Thanks to its airtime-focused layout combined with the buzz bars, you are ejected out of your seat on EVERY SINGLE HILL! Swamp Fox delivers a triple whammy on the return run as soon as you drop out of that second turnaround, with the middle hill delivering Skyrush-esque air. The final turn into the brakes gives some very good laterals too. I felt that this coaster (and park) deserved more recognition, so much that I personally asked a Captain Coaster to add Family Kingdom in! Thanks Philippe! However you may see that as much as I praise this coaster, I listed it as too short and with a rattle. The short layout really can’t be helped, as Family Kingdom had to creatively fit this coaster through an antique cars and train ride — but if you sit in the middle of each 3-row car (NOT on a wheel seat), the rattle will hardly be present at all as opposed to if you do sit in a wheel seat.
