We had a wonderful day at Soak city with my daughters friends and our German Exchange student. So easy to find your group when you get separated! Kids can go on the huge slides and Mom can relax in a tube in the lazy river!

A small water park with nice slides yet limited and crowded. Kids enjoyed thier time. Compared to its price, good value for money.

Yes, there's a large area outside Soak City for picnics with a lot of picnic tables. Yes, you can bring towels and foldable chairs to set down on the grass.
