What could possibly make a trip to Cedar Point better? Add a water park! Soak City Water Park boasts a large wave pool, 2 lazy rivers, body slides, tube slides, kiddie areas, swim-up bar, and more soaking wet, thrilling Summer fun!

Soak City Water Park Review

I have never been to Soak City Water Park until this year.  My family enjoys water parks, so we were eager to check it out during our 2 Day Ride & Slide passes.

Cedar Point Soak City Breakers Bay Wave

Our first stop was the Cedar Point Soak City Breakers Bay Wave, an enormous wave pool that sends out waves every 10 minutes!  Whether you choose to swim, float on an inner-tube, or crash the waves, it’s a blast!  Check out this video to see how it feels to be in the middle of the crashing waves at Cedar Point Soak City!


It is all the fun of the ocean waves without the dangers!  My kids had a fantastic time in the tubes, riding the waves, and crashing into them at the shoreline. When the waves calmed, they loved swimming in the vast swimming pool too.  People were sitting along the “shore line” basking in the sun like they hadn’t a care in the world. It is a great place to play and relax.

Cedar Point Soak City Renegade River and Main Stream

You might be use to lazy rives but at Soak City, be prepared to get wet! Soaking wet while on the Renegade River!  The Renegade River offers you plenty of changes to cool off under waterfalls, dumping buckets, spraying water, and more!  If you have kids like mine, they are sure to lead your inner-tube right under the splash zones!

What made the Renegade River different than any other waterpark we have been to were the rapids. The river really moved you along at a good speed and at points there were rapids!  No worries for little kids though, it is nothing scary and kids under 48″ are required to wear a provided life vest. My son noted that the Renegade River is NOT a lazy river and he loved it!

If you are looking for a more relaxing lazy river experience, you will enjoy the Main Stream better. It surrounds a couple water slides, the Tadpole Town kiddies playground area and a beach volleyball area.  We liked to end our days here after a full day of fun at Cedar Point!  A little rest and relaxation is a welcomed treat after an intense day of fun!

Cedar Point Soak City Splash Zone

We spent a good deal of time at the Soak City Splash Zone.  It is home of the dumping bucket that dumps quite often, probably every 5 minutes. You will get soaked in this tower full of activities, slides, spraying hoses, dumping buckets, and the huge Soak City bucket! Take a tour with me on the below video as my kids check out all the features.


One thing that impressed me is that all of the sprayers and dumpers were in operating condition – so were the slides! We have been to many water parks and usually about 1/4 of the water features are broken. At Soak City, you could use all of the water features which meant even more fun playing in the water! My kids and I especially like spraying and dumping water on unsuspecting people walking down below from the towers! :0

Cedar Point Soak City Adventure Cove

The Soak City Adventure Cove is the largest “activity pool” that we’ve ever been to at a water park. It was huge! Check out this overview video that I shot before joining my family in the water.


As you can see, there is so much to do at Adventure Cove including basketball, lilly pad jumps, climbing on large floating creatures and structures, water slides, getting drenched under fountains of spraying water, and of course swimming and playing!

Cedar Point Soak City Slides

There are many body slides, tube slides, and mat racers at Cedar Point Soak City. My daughter doesn’t make the 48″ height yet, so we steered clear of these larger slides this year. I’m sure we will be ready to conquer them next year!  Even so, we all enjoyed many water slides that were attached to the Splash Zone and Adventure Cove.

We did go down Zoom Flume which is a towering slide in which a large 6 person raft flies down. The height requirement for this is just 46″, so my daughter could go and really wanted to!  I was a bit of a scaredy cat but we all 4 went down it together, I was screaming the whole way!  My kids and husband loved it. It was quite the thrill and a ride we had to ride couple times more during out 2-day visit!

Cedar Point Soak City for Younger Kids

Cedar Point Soak City has plenty for younger kids to do in the Choo-Choo Lagoon. My kids are 5 and 7, so they enjoy the older kids stuff now.  It is a zero-depth entry pool area with a large activity center in the shape of a train in the middle for kids to explore, slide down, and get wet. There are also slides on the side of the area and a mini lazy river for them.
