Chula Vista, Calif. (Vocus) May 19, 2010
Knott's Soak City officially opens May 22 for the 2010 season! Longboards, surf woodies and beach themes are back in order for the wildest and coolest place in the San Diego area.
Knott's 32-acre water wonder world has a decidedly Southern California theme inspired by beach and surf towns of the 1950s San Diego coast. Reflecting the local theme, water rides and attractions at Knott's Soak City pay tribute to the area's rich surfing heritage with names like Imperial Run, Sunset River and Solana Storm Watch Tower. Dick's Beach House keeps kids delighted for hours with dozens of squirt jets, water hoses, spiral slides and more. At 500,000 gallons in size, the Balboa Bay wave pool is one of the largest in Southern California. And guests will be amazed at the Coronado Express, a 78-ft.-tall, 668-ft.-long family raft adventure.
The park's most popular attraction continues to be Pacific Spin. This water thrill ride blasts riders down into a 132-foot long tunnel then dropping 75 feet into a six-story funnel. Riders then splash back and forth on 5,000 gallons of water in specially designed 4-person cloverleaf shaped tubes. This action packed giant water adventure carries 700 passengers per hour at a maximum speed of 35 feet per second!
With over twenty private poolside cabanas available for rent by the day, guests can have it made in the shade. Located throughout the park, these Soak City Cabanas are furnished with lounge chairs, dining table and chairs and include walk-up food service and free inner-tube rentals.
Soak City Water Park re-opens May 22 and runs daily May 29 through September 6, 2010. Operation will continue weekends only September 11 through 26, 2010.
