Make your way to Knott's Soak City Orange County and present your pre-paid ticket at the gate for quick entry. Your pass is good for all-day access to the park's rides and activities. There are plenty of slides and rides to keep the kids busy all day.
At Gremmie Lagoon, little ones can splash down pint-sized water slides and wade in the children's pool. The whole family can three stories of in-your-face surprises and hands-on adventures at the Toyota Beach House.
Catch the big one at Tidal Wave Bay, a 750,000 gallon wave pool where you can shoot the curl when the breakers start rolling in. For relaxed fun, the whole family will love Sunset River, a lazy inner tube ride that meanders slowly through Soak City.
Climb Malibu Run, one of 7 tube slides, for inner-tube slides that have both open and closed flumes. Experience the fury of Mother Nature on Laguna Storm Watch Tower where you'll single and double inner-tube enclosed flumes.
Brave the waves from high atop Old Man Falls on three high-speed slides, including two open flume slides and one enclosed. Or race your friends as you go head-first on a mat down the six multi-lane speed slides of Banzai Falls.
Pacific Spin is Soak City's most action-packed water adventure, reaching a speed of 35 feet per second (11 meters per second). This thrilling raft ride includes a 132-foot (40-meter) long tunnel that drops its riders 75 feet (23 meters) into a six-story funnel. After pitching riders back and forth through 5,500 gallons (21,000 liters) of swirling water, the ride culminates in a waterfall splash.
Your family will leave at the end of the day sunkissed, happy and ready for a good night's sleep.
