With our 3 kids we went to multiple different waterparks over the years: all of Disneyworlds, all of those in the Montreal, Quebec region, some in Ontario, etc. This one was the worst. Everything is design for you to spend a lot of money for...More

We get season passes every year and always have a great time (kids are 4/8/10). Strongly recommend getting a Cabana which come with inner tubes, table, chairs and shade. Also makes it easy to get food and drink (they deliver) without waiting in long lines...More

Soak City is a great water park. Located right across the street from Knott's Berry Farm. Fun for all ages. You can get an annual gold pass that is good for both parks with no blackout dates. The price of this is well worth it.

Platinum/gold passes allows entry 30 minutes before the park opens to the rest of the public. So the first 1-2 hours are the best opportunity to get on the slides; after that, it’s not worth waiting in line – the queue is just too long...More

We had a blast with family. Loved that there wasn't any sand. Kids had a great time. Grand daughter got stung by a bee and they knew just what to do. Bath rooms were clean and food was good.

Happily surprised that this park was so clean. The wave pool area was a fun location to enjoy simulated ocean waves without the pesky sand. A leisurely float in a tube around the Sunset Bay was a perfect way to relax. If you like the...More

Lifesaver from heat. Lots of fabulous fun. Food was expensive but good. Lines get long in afternoon, but locker rental is cheap.
