We all went (10 of us) and the weather was maybe rain maybe not...we had a cabana. Let me just say you will feel very safe there. They have employees, lifeguards, security guards all over the place. You can't walk 5 ft. w/o seeing someone in red...then they have servers for your cabana. It is excellent. It is safe. We... More

Our children stayed minimum half hour in sun for each slide. Too much people, and a total disorganisation fir each slide. And we was here in a thursday.

Far too many people allowed in accident waiting to happen, can't get on rides no shade, not enough seating, health and safety need brought in here. Charged for everything in here even tubes, lazy river is no tubes scrape your knees on the way round. And jam packed nothing lazy about it. dANGER!

Soak City is very nice to me, especially because I have small kids. I feel like there is a lot for them to be entertained with and the fact that in the kids area there is only one way in and out is comforting. So I can actually sit and relax. The downside is that there's not enough seated or... More

Went here on Sunday with my husband and stepson and it was great. We got there early as we are pass holders and immediately got a locker then found some lounge chairs in the shade by Tidal Wave Bay (wave pool). We decided to rent some inner tubes for the day and that is located conveniently by the wave pool... More

Fun water park at a reasonable price. Not many rides for children under 48 inches though. The wave pool was very popular. Food prices were alittle steep. Overall a very nice park.

What could be more fun on a warm summer day than a waterpark ? This one has an area for everyone. There is an area for the little ones as well as rides for the Big ones.be careful the ground can get a little hot on the feet.

I am not a big fan of waterparks but we had an excellent time at this one. We went on a somewhat cool and overcast day so it was not too crowded. We splurged on a cabana rental and the adults were able to relax, receive excellent service for all food and beverages and people watch while the kids visited... More
