Our first time going to Kings Dominion my boys wanted to explore Soak City, but the weather wasn’t warm enough yet. Well to kick off Memorial Day weekend (I know another late post, sorry), we went back and our entire focus was on Soak City this time. Today, I am highlighting the main details from our visit.

Going Early Is Good
We made it to the park around 1pm. It was quite a walk to get to the Soak City section, but once there the boys were ready to play in all of the various water activities. Also, we did preferred parking again so once it was time to leave if the boys were tired it wouldn’t be a long walk to make it back to the car.
What We Explored
While there the boys explored, “Big Wave Bay”, “Lil Barefoot Beach”, “Soak City Splash House” and “Tidal Wave Bay”. We did want to try out the “Lazy Rider”, but the line was always overly long so we didn’t get to do that during our visit. Additionally, there are other cool water rides and stuff, but the boys were too small to get on them, but I do plan to go back and check them out during an “adults only” theme park visit.
My Overall Review

My boys and I love going to Kings Dominion, but this visit we did encounter two hiccups during our fun. The first thing was having three young kids in the water park can be quite a task of keeping up with everyone because they all want to explore different things. My youngest ran off twice, but thankfully security was very alert and he was quickly spotted and we were able to get him back quickly. It was a nightmare, so I don’t think he will be doing too many more free play activities this summer unless there is three adults, so one adult is able to keep a watch on each kid.
The second hiccup was their processing system went out, which was a bummer because we were really wanting one of those turkey legs, but the entire parks system shut down. Luckily, this happened after we were able to get some Slurpee’s to replenish ourselves and of course I had to have my funnel cake.

Overall, Soak City was a fun experience and it is a place that I would recommend to others who have kids. However, just be aware that toddlers will only be able to participate in the free play water activities and not the actual rides, slides, and stuff.
Have you ever been to Soak City at Kings Dominion? If so, how did you experience go?
