Worth the Long Wait, Mostly.
Karma definitely offers its share of "Ultimate Teen Nightlife" around the Myrtle Beach area. Their selection of music is hip-hop and top-40 hits only. There is no smoking except on the outdoor balcony, which you will eventually have to visit because it's the only place to get outside air and the dance floor seems to be about 20 degrees warmer than the outside temperature. They do offer refreshments, but expect to pay a premium for them. A large premium. Parents/guardians over 21 cannot stay the whole night, but they don't need to worry because the crowd is kept under excellent control by the adult security guards. Only ages 13-19 are allowed in as patrons, so that's a plus. $10 gets you all this before 9 PM, then it's $15. Speaking of that, if you want to get in quickly, get in line early. I went on a Friday at 8:30 PM and the line to get in was already half a block long and growing. The doors open at 7 so get there at 6:30, especially on a Friday. My only time there was my first time, but I left wanting to go again. If you're a teenager in the Myrtle Beach area looking for a cheap, fun way to kill a few hours at night, then this is your place to go.
