Knott's Soak City U.S.A., Buena Park

Water Park · Water / Amusement Park
Knott’s Soak City Waterpark is a separately gated, 15-acre water park next to the Knott's Berry Farm theme park. In 2017, Orange County's largest water park expanded to offer even more fun in the sun with seven new slides. The park now boasts a total of 22 speed, tube and body slides plus the 750,000-gallon Tidal Wave Bay wave pool; the one-third-mile Sunset River; and the three-story Beach House, featuring 200 water guns, nozzles, sprayers and other interactive surprises. The water park also features Gremmie Lagoon, a hands-on water playground for younger kids and families. Open seasonally on select days from mid-May to early September.

  • We went as a family of four and booked a cabana. Queues - we went mid august and the queues/lines were not that bad at all. Only the ride were all four if us were in an inflatable had the queues...  more »
  • We live local and purchased a season pass. We love everything about it. The lines are long so I suggest getting there right when it opens if you want to go on rides and go during the week if...  more »
  • Nice place if you have a pass. Lots of life guards. Cabanas are nice, but the cabana rental staff seems harried and unresponsive. For the price the cabanas could be improved. Soft product and service is good, but things like misters on the cabana would have been a nice touch for hot days. Food is decent and the service is nice. On busy days the water shows how many unwashed people enter the complex. Pros: fun for kids and slide lovers. Cabanas are clean and nice. Lifeguards seem vigilant and I felt safe with my kids in the park. Cons: most kids come in unwashed and silly the park with themselves. Signs aren't multi-lingual. Little extras on the cabana would really justify the price.
  • Fun little place for the whole family during the hot summer month. Go early when they first open the door, hang out there for a good few hours then drive out of the park for some good food in Little Saigon then drive back for more water fun. I would recommend bringing your flip flops as the pavement can get really hot in the summer. Also, they do not have a lot of shady places in the park so if you have small kids then be mindful of where you "camp out" for the day as the sun can make it an a painful experience for the little ones, even if you applied a lot of sunscreen on them. They also have a good deal for both Knott's Berry Farm and Soak City admission.
