Knott’s Soak City is officially open for summer fun!  Knott’s Soak City is an awesome Water Park located in Buena Park California.  Knott’s Berry Farm has been a family tradition for years, but this was our first trip to Knott’s Soak City.  We are excited to share the highlights of our trip to Knott’s Soak City and also some of the new additions this season.

On opening day it was nearly 90 degrees and there was not a cloud in the sky. It was a perfect day for wave pools, water slides, and spray grounds.  The big kids were so excited to try out the brand new attractions!

“The Beach House” is a fun space for kids that want to splash and get wet, but don’t wan to ride big rides.

  • Shore Break will take single riders on an adrenaline-filled water adventure as thrill-seekers board one of four Aqua Launch chambers to await the chamber’s floor dropping from beneath their feet sending them on a high speed free fall down a 60-foot tall slide and through a series of exhilarating drops and daring loops. Additionally, Shore Break offers two dueling tube slides which will have riders zipping through adventurous drops and turns as they soak up the warm summer sun.
  • The Wedge will take families – up to six riders – on an open-raft ride as they descend down navigating hair-raising twists, turns and unexpected dips.
  • Longboard’s Grill will return for the 2017 summer season after a complete remodeling and expansion which now offers a newly redesigned sleek restaurant layout. While Longboard’s theme remains the same, the menu includes new and delicious items such as hand breaded chicken tenders, fish & chips and assorted wraps. Plus classic favorites like grilled burgers and hot dogs. A new shaded outdoor seating area has been added by the restaurant’s entrance, welcoming diners to fuel up with delicious meals as they take a break from the sun.
  • Cabanas! As part of the waterpark’s expansion, additional spacious cabanas and seating areas have been added to the park’s blueprint. A new row of cabanas will be conveniently located across the new Shore Break tower, and a new seating area equipped with lounge chairs will allow guests to relax in the sun, also located near the Shore Break complex.

Daily admission begins at as little as $37.  Season passes are also an amazing deal and worth checking out.  It is going to be a long, hot summer, and Knott’s Soak City is a great place to cool down and make some memories.

Thank you to the good folks at Knott’s Berry Farm for inviting us to check out all that is new at Knott’s Soak City!  We had such a fantastic day. We hope to see you all again soon.

Until Next Time ~ Kate
