Knott’s Berry Farm’s first Soak City expansion project in 10 years will feature a 165-foot water tower feeding four new slides and another 150-foot tower with two slides sure to keep guests cool during warm summers. “This expansion is really to enhance what we have at the park,” said Jeff Gahagan, Knott’s vice president of maintenance and construction. “We’ve turned into the local park that everybody can call home.”
Expected to begin later this year, construction on the 1.8-acre expansion will eliminate some parking.
To compensate for lost spaces, Knott’s will demolish two buildings along Beach Boulevard it recently purchased from Buena Park for $250,000 and replace them with a 130-space parking lot.
Soak City’s newest towers and slides are expected to open in May.
