As a little girl soon as summer time hit I was playing in the water every day. As an adult, my dream is to have my own tropical oasis in my backyard. Until then, I can do with hanging out with my family at one of my favorite water parks in Southern California. Today’s mom guide is sponsored by Knott’s Berry Farm. However, all options are mine.
Summer time is finally here, and my family and I were blessed to attend the opening day of Knott’s Soak City Waterpark. Orange County’s largest water park and in my option a perfect family destination to cool off during the summer. However, I highly recommend you going Monday – Thursday to avoid the weekend crowds. That is what Matt and I like to do.
I’ve been taking my kids to Knott’s Sock City for years. I love that the park is small enough to easily keep track of my teens, while I hang out with my daughter Joy in the kid’s zones. Yet it is filled with water attractions that will keep the whole family entertained.
Joy loves playing in the water just as must as Matt and I. So when we are at the park our first stop is the Beach House a three stories attraction that offers an array of hands-on water fun including interactive water guns, nozzles, faucets and other surprises. Our favorite part of the attraction is the water bucket drops that occur every five minutes uploads 500 gallons of water on everyone below.
From their, Joy likes to go over to Gremmie Lagoon. This area is perfect for the smallest thrillseekers. The interactive playground includes octopus, submarines and other oversized landmarks that squirt, sprinkle, soak and splash kids and parents too!
Finally, we like to end our day in the Sunset River. Soak City’s Lazy River that is 1,780-ft.-long and one-third mile in length, Knott’s giant figure-eight waterway is the widest and one of the longest water park lazy rivers in the world!
For our Teens
Both of our boys are college bound. Therefore, they tend not to want to hang out with us, unless it is in the lazy river. So when we are off with their little sister, they like to explore the many other attractions the park has to offer.
This year they were both excited about Knott’s Soak City newest attraction.
Shore Break a seven story slide that offers six different thrilling water slide experiences. Four of the slides are 75-foot tall tower where guests climb inside an Aqua-Launch chamber and wait anxiously for the floor to drop out from underneath their feet, sending them into a high-speed, almost vertical free fall through a series of flat loops and S-curves in a translucent flume. Shore Break also features dueling tube slides that zip riders through an enchanting series of drops and turns. Finally, The Wedge slide tower an if a fun open air family raft ride. That allows up to four guests at a time to descend down navigating twists and turns and surprise drops.
