This water park will offer teenagers and little children many water attractions from little pools to extreme slides. The place is neatly maintained and there are life guards everywhere you look. What I liked less was the fact that EVERYTHING cost money there from parking...More

What's not to like about Knott's Soak City U.S.A.? Get soaked! Easy parking for groups, buses, rv's, and cars. Plenty of sitting and cabanas. Thrills rides, family rides, kids play. Worth the price of admission.

Very adventurous place - must for dare devils since the rides are very scary. However there is lot more fun activities around for younger people and kids.

Went on opening day, May 20, 2017. Temp of 90 degrees expected so park was packed. Lines to get in were super long when other friends arrived around 10:00, but when we arrived at 11:30 it was reasonable. Bought tickets online which saved some money....More

I've been a Knott's Berry Farm Season Pass holder for several years, and have been a frequent visitor to the amusement park. We decided to "upgrade" our pass to Gold this year (2017), as our 4-year-old has been asking to visit the water park. We...More

If you want to visit a water park rather than spend your day queuing then this is not the place to visit. We spent most of the day in a queue waiting for other people to hand over their buoyancy rings. This was not great...More

Hi..can anyone help me out with the price of cabana rental ? We are planning a family trip in July to Disneyland and will have an extra day in Southern California and thinking about the water park but obviously their site doesn't have any info up yet for this season and we want to know what all of our options are before we make any reservations anywhere. Thanks!

2017 pricing for both parks isn't on their website yet. The only info available are 2017 season pass pricing for each park. I would call 714-220-5200 to see if they might tell you when the water park site posts pricing.
