Knott's Soak City Water Park

8039 Beach Boulevard
Buena Park, CA 90620


Knott’s 32-acre water wonder world has a decidedly Southern California theme inspired by beach and surf towns of the 1950s San Diego coast. Reflecting the local theme, water rides and attractions at Knott’s Soak City pay tribute to the area’s rich surfing heritage with names like Imperial Run, Sunset River and Solana Storm Watch Tower. Dick’s Beach House will keep the kids delighted for hours with dozens of squirt jets, water hoses, spiral slides and more. At 500,000 gallons in size, the Balboa Bay wave pool is one of the largest in Southern California. And guests will be amazed at the Coronado Express, a 78-ft.-tall, 668-ft.-long family raft adventure.

      If you haven’t done it yet, you will want to take a chance on the big spin, Pacific Spin. Thrill seekers will find themselves blasting down into a 132-foot long tunnel then dropping 75 feet into a six-story funnel. Riders splash back and forth on 5,000 gallons of water in specially designed 4-person cloverleaf shaped tubes. This action packed giant water adventure carries 700 passengers per hour at a maximum speed of 35 feet per second! 
     Time to relax? With twenty private poolside cabanas available for rent by the day, guests can have it made in the shade. Located throughout the park, these Soak City Cabanas are furnished with lounge chairs, dining table and chairs and include walk-up food service and free innertube rentals.
