We visited on a day with moderate temperatures - and even some rain - and obviously that curbs your enthusiasm about the experience. The waterpark offers what is arguably the longest lazy river I have ever come across, but even on a day with gloomy weather the lines for the slides are long. Moreover, the staff's enforcement of the very... More

Knotts soak city is a ok property with some fun attractions. The property is not particularly clean, and could use a minor renovation, but it's not terrible. Some of the staff was rude, others were nice. The place is not massive, and is easy to navigate. The lines were not bad when I was there. Food is just average and... More

Not too big but plenty of water slides to enjoy. If you have little ones the children's section is a blast for them. All the employees are really helpful and professional.

Great fun, just wish they provided towels, and that lockers were cheaper. So much to do there, just wish lines were shorter, especially in the heat. The parking fee was excessive, but common for all amusement parks in Cali.

Last summer we visited Raging Waters for my daughters 7th birthday and were really disappointed. This year we chose Knott's Soak City for her 8th birthday and it was a hit! We purchased the tickets online through Groupon and got a great admission deal to begin with. We also stayed at the Knott's Berry Farm Hotel so we didn't have... More

This is the closest water park to our house and we make several visits every summer. Well worth the money! Rent a cabana, makes life easier with kids. Serves as a central location and you don't need to rent a locker to store your stuff.

My daughter had her 10th birthday party at Soak City. We arrived at the water park at 10am when it opened and was able to go on 7 rides before 11am since there was no line early on. The Pacific Spin was thrilling and a must do (if you are over 48 inches). As with all rides that require a... More

This water park had way too few rides for the 2500 "camp kids" that are there daily! Seriously....150 school buses fill of kids every single time my family visits? We ended up leaving and went to the beach for a beautiful day!
