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, but that was more down to the slowness of people exiting the pool at the bottom of the ride than anything else! Cabana - expensive, but worth it for the shade, the table and seats and the locker / safe. The table service was good with regular cold water being provided. Food - expensive and ok, rather than good. Rides - all are excellent and we enjoyed them all. Ideal park for all ages. The park is easy to get to (10/15mins drive from Disneyland) and very clean and well staffed. Worth a visit.

Soak city is dirty! The changing rooms are hot and grimy. At least one of the slide staircase has bird poop all over it. From a health point of view it’s pretty gross. We had a season pass this year but won’t be getting one for 2020

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 possible. The weekends get pretty crowded. We spent most of our time in the lazy river and the wave pool. My kids are young so the enjoy the splash pad and the kids pool. Seating is next to impossible to find, but they have grassy areas were you can set down a blanket and bring an umbrella. Most kids around here go back to school mid August so if you are from out of town I'm guessing it wouldn't be as busy at the end of August.

Thoroughly enjoyed our day at Knott's Soak City ... the slides are superb. The park is organised well. We had no problem finding sunbeds, even without "setting up camp". The locker system worked well. Plenty of food/beverage outlets and a swim shop. A wonderful day in the California sunshine. HOWEVER I was not able to participate on several slides because I was told I couldn't wear my goggles. I wear contact lenses which I don't want to lose. Also, my optician strongly advises I should protect my eyes when participating in any water activities because of the risk of microscopic bacteria/germs etc that can lodge behind lenses, causing infections that can lead to blindness (having experienced a corneal ulcer once before, I absolutely don't want to risk this again). I understand that the park would not have allowed me to wear spectacles on these rides either (I assume that the concern is regarding "hard" objects perhaps causing injury to the rider, or damage to the slide? To cover the first risk, surely the park could include a warning on these slides, alongside all the other warnings? If the concern is risking damage to the slide, then why were many youngsters with mouths full of metallic braces allowed to ride, but plastic goggles are not allowed? Perhaps there is a good reason I've missed ... We were also told to remove our water shoes for several slides (which are soft/flexible), but allowed to wear them on others. Again ... why? It was a pain to keep taking them off and putting them back on but the pathways between the slides were VERY hot in the sunshine ... without the shoes our feet felt like they were burning? As with any activity in bare feet, there is a risk of picking up a verucca... so for this reason I would also have preferred to keep my water shoes on. So, I've knocked off one star. Still - a great park.
