Soak City Review & 4 Tickets Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #132!


Last week, we were guests at Soak City in Orange County, CA. I was lucky enough to have received 4 tickets to try out Soak City. Since DH was at work, I decided to invite my friend Julie and her beautiful little girl Avery to come along with us. None of us have ever been to Soak City before, so it was a very exciting day for us.

We started the day early. DD and I arrived at Julie's house at 9 in the morning so that we could carpool together to Soak City. Here's the 4 of us right after we entered Soak City. The kids were ready for a day of fun.

We decided to park ourseleves over at the kiddie's play area (actually it was Julie's idea). As soon as DD saw the play structure, she was completely in awe of it. Right in the middle of the kids' play area, there is a giant octopus with 4 water slides. DD went up and slide down that slide for what seemed like a million times. She was seriously doing that for an hour as we looked on. I actually had to drag her away so we could see other part of the water park.

Here's a better view of the whole kiddie play area.

Avery was especially in love with the crabs and the turtles there. While DD was going up and down the slide, riding the crabs and turtles was all Avery wanted to do, lol.

The kids had a blast!

Sorry I don't have more photo to show you -- we were too busy having fun to take photos. After we let the kids played at the kiddie play area for about an hour, we explored the rest of the park (and had a blast). We did the Tidal Wave Bay and the kids LOVED it! They love jumping up as the waves come in. The kids were not tall enough to go into Tidal Wave Bay without life jackets. Luckily, there were plenty of them all around. One of the life guards was so nice. He helped me put it on DD and made sure that it was on her nice and tight.

DD's favorite thing at Soak City was Bonzai Falls (an adult water slide). I was surprised that DD was actually tall enough to meet their height requirement for it. Avery was not, so while Avery and Julie waited for us, I took DD on it. I actually have a fear of heights so while we walked up the stairs to reach the top of the water slide (which is about maybe 3 stories tall), I totally thought about going back down the stairs after I sent my daughter her merry way. Once we were on the top, DD had no hesitation at all. She went down fast and never looked back. Instead of doing the walk of shame down the stairs, I followed DD down the water slide. On the bottom of it, I found DD laughing and screaming that she wanted it do it again. Yes, my child is fearless!

Julie's favorite was the lazy river. I must admit that it was really relaxing. I almost fell asleep myself. We went around the lazy river several times and we both agreed that it was way better than other water parks we have been to in the past.

Besides being an awesome water park, I love that there are life guards everywhere. Soak City is very well staffed. I thought the whole water park is great, but I am especially impressed by the kiddie play area for the kids. I think for preschoolers and toddlers, this area will provide them with hours and hours of fun. The area is very open, so you can sit, relax and watch your kids play.

After taking our kids there, both Julie and I agreed that it was the best water park both of us have been too. It was not overcrowded, the wait for the rides was reasonable and most importantly, the kids had a blast! To visit Soak City in Orange County this summer, please check out its website for hours, address and to purchase tickets online.

Many thanks to Soak City. The water park has generously offered 4 tickets as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers so that he/she can take his/her family to the Soak City (in Orange County, CA) this summer.
