This has been on my visited list for several months and no one has added it to his or her list yet, which I think may be because mostly locals go there. I think there are only 3 Soak Cities in California. They are owned by Knott’s (as in Knott’s Berry Farm).
I went to Soak City again a couple of weekends ago and there was a new ride there called Pacific Spin, which was one of my favorite rides. It is a 4 person raft ride that starts off going through a covered water slide and ends going up and down a couple of times in a huge cone. Very fun! Another one of my favorites was the Coronado Express. It’s a family raft ride (I think up to 6 people can fit in one raft, but there was only 4 of us)…the ride goes down an open water slide and the turns on the slide are what makes it really fun because the turns are very hard and it makes the raft go up!
There is also this area in Soak City that has a beach house (water playground), which is surrounded by the Sunset River (people can just relax on their inner tubes while the water moves them around the river). Next to the beach house is the Gremmie Lagoon. At the lagoon, there is this pool that has fake plastic tree trunks and stumps in it. A rope is above this pool and people would line up to try and get across the pool by just holding onto the rope and stepping on the trunks/stumps. Little kids were zooming through it, but as the more taller people tried to get across…it looked like they were having a difficult time. Before my turn was up, I didn’t think I could get across…but I did! My arms were very sore afterwards from holding onto dear life on the rope…no wonder the gremmie lagoon was in the children’s area. That tree trunk thing was definitely made for kids…it was still fun trying it though…
There are many more rides and attractions that I didn’t mention. Check out Soak City if you are in the Chula Vista area on a very hot day…over 6 years ago
