Who sez you gotta go to the beach or (heaven forbid!) drive downtown to have a good time in Charleston? Not me, that's for sure!
Just drive down Ashley Phosphate Rd towards Dorchester, and right on your right will be heaven on Earth! Frankie's Fun Park is like Myrtle Beach, only much much smaller!
They have a mini-golf course with waterfalls that have a strangely unnatural blue coloured water flowing through. Think "Tidy Bowl" blue.
THey have batting cages, and this gyro thing you strap yourself into and go all which ways in the air.
Skee-ball and arcade games are there as well, as well as a mini racetrack that you can race around with your friends.
Mostly kids there, but some adults as well. Just forget the suspecting glances as you, a 45 year old, get glee from playing skee-ball til your arm falls off. You know that if you get 50,000 tickets (equal to about $250 US) you can get a large stuffed panda that is worth around $1.25. So what if the conversion factor doesn't work out in your favour? At least you have a panda that is so large you can't fit it in your car so you end up giving it away to one of the kids who heckled you when the skee-ball bounced off the back and hit you in the eye.
