Very nice smaller water park. Never had a long wait in line and the kids spent a long time in the wake pool and lazy river. The lockers where right up front where you entered they where a bit small but worked good. Everything overall was a good experience but defeintly for younger kids older kids would get bored quickly.

We live in Buena Park so we get the Knott's passes each year (that include Soak City.) Definitely worth the price of a pass! The kids have a lot of fun. Weekends are packed but weekdays are fine. Heck, I even like it here. They serve beer and wine (as well as soda and food.) Food is pricey but we... More

When the weather is hot, this is a good place to cool off. Lots of fun water slides and other fun water features. Nice to place a day at Knott's Berry Farm and also a day at Soak City.

May water slides and lots of fun. However during summer months be prepared to have wait times running in the 30-60 minute time frame. Get there early to get a seat. Good way to cool off on the hot summer days.

Went here twice over the summer with my kid as a first-time passholder, NEVER going back. After the first trip when I got home I itched something fierce! Sam thing but not as bad after the second trip. I'm exposed to excessive chlorine weekly due to swim lessons with my kid so it was from that. I looked it up... More

Great water park with water chutes and a wave pool. Water tyre rides and a lot more. Park is only open from the end of May until the end of August or September.

came with our Knotts Gold Pass annual pass. Not tremendously huge, but fun and clean. Decent food offerings. Lockers can be used in/out throughout the day.

Had a good time. If you are going during peak times you definitely want to get there at opening so you can get chairs and a place to sit.

As usual, we arrived early, but it didn't really matter as there was not a crowd of people there on the Wednesday that we visited. Some of the slides had a short wait at times. Don't walk around in bare feet on the concrete unless you want to burn your feet. We booked and paid for a cabana for the... More
