Your guide to Knotts Soak City 2017 #KnottsSoakCity #SoakCityOC

We were so excited to be invited back to Knott's Soak City this year!  We went for their grand opening and got to check out their new slides!  Check out the video below to see what is new and read about all of their attractions!

Where is Knott's Soak City?

Knott's Soak City is located east of Knott's Berry Farm.  My tip on parking is to come in from Beach Blvd coming from the South, this way you will miss the Knott's Berry Farm crowd.  Once you pull into the parking area go all the way to the other end of the parking lot towards Stanton Ave.  There is an entrance to Knott's Soak City from there.  Click around on the map below to get yourself familiraze where the rides are.

What are the new slides at Knott's Soak City?

Shore Break - Knotts Soak City

Shore Break

Shore Break is over seven stories high and comes with six different slides. Four of the slides will start with an Aqua-Launch chamber.  This is chamber where the floor will drop out from underneath your feet. Shore Break also has two dueling tube slides that you will go down in tubes.  I didn't see long lines for this ride.  You pick up the tubes for the dueling slides at the bottom.  You can sit single or with a partner.  
Height Requirement: 48 inches barefoot

The Wedge - Knotts Soak City

The Wedge

The Wedge is an open air family raft ride.  Here you can sit up to six people at a time.  Even the most timid of kids will like this ride.  There is a long wait for this ride when crowded.  You don't have to carry the raft as it will be supplied at the top for you.    
Height Requirement: 40 inches barefoot. Guests between 40 - 48 inches must be accompanied by a supervising companion.
