Two Grand Strand Waterparks are adjusting their operating hours.
Myrtle Waves, located in Myrtle Beach, and Wild Water and Wheels, located in Surfside Beach, will operate weekends only until June 18, 2021.
Lazarus Entertainment group, who owns the Waterparks, says the firm can only operate weekends because of a worker shortage.
The Myrtle Beach area is suffering from labor shortages across the Grand Strand.
According to the company, the majority of their staff are students. Horry County School students do not get out until mid-June. The company plans to fully operate by June 18th as these school students become available for hire.
The owner, Mark Lazarus, told local news station WPDE: “We pride ourselves on safety at all of our parks. I have been doing this for a long time and we want a great customer experience and we want our customers and our staff to be safe. We had to make a business decision in order to accomplish our goals.“
