Orange County’s largest water park, Knott’s Soak City Waterpark, reopens for the 2021 season with limited capacity and reservation requirements. Guests can catch a ride down 23 different speed, tube, and body slides or take a relaxing trip down one of the longest lazy rivers in the country. The 15-acre water park has something for each member of the family, an interactive kid’s area, and for the more adventurous families, The Wedge, a rip-roaring family raft ride. Guests can also enjoy new additions to the food lineup, such as a poke bowl, chicken taco sandwiches, and so much more.

Knott’s Soak City Waterpark will safely reopen to Gold and Platinum Season Passholders for a special preview on May 22 and May 23, with plans to reopen to the public select dates beginning on May 29 through September 12.

To properly manage physical distancing of guests, capacity will be limited each day and may sell out. Ticket sales and reservations will be available starting May 10 at 10am PST.

The safety and health of our guests remain our top priority. Knott’s Soak City Waterpark follows state, county and local health guidelines. There are several safety measures and operational changes established to ensure guests’ safety.
