Knott’s Berry re-opens new-look Soak City
Knott’s Berry Farm opens a newly expanded Knott’s Soak City Waterpark on 20th May.
The new-look water park will be debuting seven new slides on two new slide towers, Shore Break and The Wedge including a fully remodeled Longboard’s Grill, additional seating areas and new spacious cabanas.
Shore Break sees single riders board one of four Aqua Launch chambers to await the chamber’s floor dropping from beneath their feet sending them on a high speed free fall down a 60-foot tall slide and through a series of exhilarating drops and daring loops. Additionally, Shore Break offers two duelling tube slides which will have riders zipping through adventurous drops and turns.
The Wedge will take families – up to six riders – on an open-raft ride as they descend down navigating twists, turns and unexpected dips.
Longboard’s Grill will return for the 2017 summer season after a complete remodelling and expansion which now offers a newly redesigned sleek restaurant layout. While Longboard’s theme remains the same, the menu includes a number of new items plus classic favourites. A new shaded outdoor seating area has been added by the restaurant’s entrance as well. As part of the water park’s expansion, additional spacious cabanas and seating areas have been added to the park’s blueprint. A new row of cabanas which will be conveniently located across the new Shore Break tower. A new seating area equipped with lounge chairs will allow guests to relax in the sun and is also located near the Shore Break complex.
To mark the new expanded features the park is running a Soak City Beach Bash during opening weekend, 20th-21st May.
