Soak City~ The only water park in the OC!

Last Sunday, as I was making my way to the east coast, my kids and their Tia were making their way to Knott’s Soak City in Buena Park, Ca.  This was their first visit ever, to a water park and boy did they have a great time.

Knott’s Soak City is a water park adjacent to Knott’s Berry Farm.  Your paid admission includes 17 tube slides, a wave pool and my personal favorite~ a lazy river. I can spend hours upon hours in the lazy river.

My kids went went straight into Gremmie Lagoon. This is a section of the park that is completely catered to the younger kids.  It’s here where your little ones can enjoy the surroundings of the water park but they can enjoy water slides, pools and splash around in a safe. down to size level of fun.  My kids loved it here.  It can get a little congested with kids.  As long as you are there to supervise the fun, your kids can spend a great deal of time here.

For the older kids in your group, they can enjoy slides that I just won’t even think of sliding. (:  Do you know about the Pacific Spin?  One look at this and I know it will send me running to  Gremmie Lagoon, where it’s safe. This is a slide that has you on a six-story funnel!  A funnel people!  You can even ride with family and friends with mulit-person raft.

Once the kids get hungry from playing in the water, there are 3 different concession stands to choose from.  Also, there is a shop that has anything and everything from swim wear to sunblock, Wipeout Surf Shop has got you covered!

The kids had a great time.  When I called them that night to see how the day went, I got an ear full of cools, funs and awesomes!  Perfect for your summer visits, if you ask me!
