It’s hard to believe summer is almost over! Now that our daughter’s cast is off, we were ready to wrap up summer in a fun way at the Cedar Point Water Park- Soak City!
Disclosure: I received tickets complimentary to facilitate my review and post. Regardless, all opinions are mine and those of my family.
Although we don’t necessarily take a summer break from our homeschool, we surely like to take advantage of the beautiful weather! Plus, it’s a little less crowded nearing the end of summer which is always nice. We decided to head over to Soak City on Friday and soak up the fun!
Soak City is a fun water park next to Cedar Point. In fact, you can even enter Soak City and through Cedar Point by Magnum. Generally, admission to Soak City is separate from the admission to Cedar Point though you can purchase dual admission tickets. Do you know what’s really amazing, though? Through the next weekend you can receive admission to both for one price!
Soak City has a variety of great rides and activities for all ages! Many of the large rides have a height minimum as well as life jacket requirements for those under a certain height. Something I really appreciate is the areas for young kids also has a maximum height (for those not with a child. This means lots of fun for little ones without worry of getting run over by the big kids! Our younger two children had a blast in these zones, though they particularly liked “the beach” (Choo Choo Lagoon).
Our daughter, though, is now also tall enough to ride some of the rides, and our oldest son is now tall enough to ride all of the rides. Wow! Needless to say, we tried a little bit of everything from the kids’ areas, the lazy river and the not so lazy river, to the big tube slides!
There are so many great rides from the tube slides with single rider inner tubes to the big slide with the multi-rider tube. So much fun! There are even racers with a mat, and you’ll be surprised where you come out!
I took a turn on some of the great rides, too. I had to laugh as I was preparing our son for the possibility of a wile out when you come off the slide as it was his first time in that style of ride. I’m happy to say he had multiple smooth rides. I, on the other hand, had an epic wipe out coming out of the yellow slide. It was the kind of wipe out you wish someone had gotten on video! Ha!
We had such a blast at Soak City. The only thing(s) we would have done differently would be reapplying sunscreen and wearing flip flops in between zones. That pavement gets HOT! Phew! Overall, though, the temperature was amazing, and it definitely wasn’t too crowded. So, for us, this was a great time to go!
Coming in 2017! A Transformed Cedar Point Water Park!
There are some amazing changes coming in 2017 – including a complete transformation from Soak City to the new Cedar Point Shores Water Park! It will include 18 acres of pure water fun! There will be three completely new water attractions, upgrades to food and merchandise locations, new cabanas and more!
There will be new attractions for both big and little thrills. How does a six-story-tall aqua-drop body slide that sends four riders on a nearly vertical free fall when the floor drops out from under them sound? A little too much thrill? Lakside Landing might be ideal! It will be an amazing family splashground with kid size water slides and plenty of ways to relax under shade structures! There is really going to be something for everyone, and you won’t want to miss it!
Want to get in on the fun now? You can get your 2017 Platinum Pass now! I know I can’t wait to check it out! What will you be looking forward to most?
