Knott’s Soak City San Diego Water Park rides

Banzai Falls – grab a mat and slide headfirst down this rolling six-lane water slide.

Sunset River – grab an inner tube and relax as you drift along this lazy river’s 1,780 feet of windy waterways – it’s the world’s widest and one of the longest water park lazy rivers.

Gremmie Lagoon – if the thought of high-speed water rides gives you Knott’s in your stomach, Gremmie Lagoon is the perfect respite. It's geared towards the younger crowd and features interactive water games for little ones.

The Wedge – zip down this open-air group raft ride and navigate your way down unexpected twists, turns, and drops as you meander the slide’s barriers. Seats up to six people.

Tidal Wave Bay – this 750,000-gallon Tidal Wave pool features some of the city’s best surf. Bask in the sun and relax when the waves are ‘off’ and then shoot the curl like a surfing pro when they start back up.

Shore Break – this seven-story tall tower features six different water slide thrill experiences, including four slides that begin in an Aqua-Launch chamber where the floor will drop out from beneath your feet. You can also race your friends on the dueling tube slides and see who reaches the pool first.

Old Man Falls – climb to 63 feet above the ground and let gravity take you away on these top-speed-reaching waterslides.

Beach Houses – this three-story Beach House boasts 200 water guns, nozzles, sprayers, and other surprises.
