Need ideas for entertainment this summer? Knott’s Soak City has you covered. They offer convenience, thrill and endless splashing fun. Just look at how excited my little guy was! The best part is that they offer Knott’s Berry Farm season passes making it easier to visit all summer long.
We had the opportunity to join Snoopy for the ribbon cutting ceremony of the newest addition to Knott’s Soak City. They added two acres of new slides – Shore Break Towers and The Wedge. This brings in seven new slides, and more opportunity for fun. The expansion has also added more shaded seating areas, cabanas, and a newly remodeled Longboard’s Grill where they offer delicious food options and refreshing drinks. The best part is that you get to enjoy it outdoors under the sun. A great way to enjoy a picnic and take a break from all the fun.
Want some thrill? These colorful slides take you over seven stories high and offers six new slides for guest to enjoy. Shore Break Towers features an aqua-launch chamber 60 feet tall, and gives the opportunity for four guest to work up an adrenaline rush. When you step into the slide you anxiously wait for the floor to drop beneath your feet. Ready, set, go! The feeling is amazing, get ready to feel those butterflies. The thrill sends you down an almost vertical drop along with some twist and turns.
This was definitely my favorite slide. I braved it twice! The feeling alone of knowing that you will be literally dropping and making your way to the bottom of the water slide is mind-blowing. As you go down you can’t help but scream in pure excitement!
Shore Break also offers a dueling tube slide which allows you to ride in a double or single tube, your choice! Both options take you through a series of drops and turns. My eight-year-old enjoyed this one this one the most, giving him the right amount of thrill. We made sure to ride this one a few times, both alone and in the double tubes. We thought it was more fun to ride in separate tubes so that we could race down. There is a 48 inch requirement for these slides.
The Wedge was a family favorite! This ride allows 2-6 guest to ride down an open air raft with a series of twist and turns and unexpected drops. It was super fun and refreshing, definitely one made for lots of laughs. My favorite part is being able to see my children’s facial expressions as the slide takes you down. There’s no better feeling than seeing your children shine with laughter.
There are endless possibilities at Knott’s Soak City to build memories this summer. A place for the entire family to enjoy. Whether you chose the lazy river, wave pool, or exhilarating slides, you are in for a good time.
