Hurricane, located in Myrtle Beach, SC, is a simplistic wooden roller coaster gracing the Grand Strand less than a block from the oceanfront beach. Built in the Myrtle Beach Pavilion by Custom Coasters International, Inc. (CCI) for a cost of six million dollars, this 101 foot, unpopular coaster opened on May 6th, 2000.

Even though the lift hill gives a rider a great view of the city, people seem to be more attracted to socializing and spending time on the beach than to spend excessive costs for this simple coaster. Though it runs at a slow maximum speed of 55 mph, the maximum g-forces of 3 Gs is somewhat appealing to coaster riders.
