Kings Island announces important updates regarding the rest of the 2020 Season. Learn More.
The Greater Cincinnati area has been getting plenty of water in the form of rain this spring, but those who are ready to dive into summer will get their first opportunity when Kings Island’s Soak City Water Park opens for its 30th anniversary season on Saturday.
Home to exhilarating attractions – Tropical Plunge, towering seven stories and featuring six water slide experiences; Rendezvous Run, which turns you 360 degrees in the dark; Mondo Monsoon, a four-person thrill ride; and our huge wave pool, Tidal Wave Bay – Soak City is the premier water park in the region and included with park admission to Kings Island.
When the summer heat hits, Soak City is the perfect cool-off option for all ages. With more than 50 water activities, including 36 water slides, Soak City offers entertainment options galore for families to experience together.
There’s even water fun available for the little ones who can’t swim yet! There are dedicated spaces specifically for young children. Designed with kids in mind, these areas feel just as exciting for them as the experiences their older siblings have with the bigger attractions. Children can spend hours exploring our kid-friendly water slides and dozens of interactive splash stations overflowing with fun. Some favorites include:
- Castaway Cove, a relaxing pint-sized pool for pint-sized swimmers. Families can enjoy the splash of the refreshing fountain spray. Perfect for the li'l soakers!
- Lookout Lagoon, where the kids show off their inner pirate! Sprays, bubbles and water cannons with five slides give every kid the chance to make a big splash!
- Splash Landing, a land of never-ending aquatic excitement! Kid-friendly waterslides and dozens of interactive splash stations overflow with fun. And speaking of overflowing, watch out for the giant bucket over the playhouse.
After splashing around all morning, refuel at Soak City’s Island Smokehouse restaurant. Offering a completely unique dining experience, guests will enjoy the smells and tastes of smoked pulled pork, smoked or grilled wings, hand-breaded chicken tenders and shrimp, all cooked to perfection on the restaurant’s wood fired smoker. Pair your meal with one of several delicious side dishes, including baked beans, fries, mac & cheese or coleslaw.
