Water Slides

Breakers Plunge

Featuring a 90 foot free fall, this slide will have your adrenaline pumping before even sliding down!

This blue and green water slide can be seen from quite a distance away as it towers over Soak City.

You don't have to believe us, you can see for yourself below!

In order to ride this ride, guests will have to climb up 148 stairs to reach the top of the tower. 

Breakers Pipeline

Conveniently located right next to Breakers Plunge, Breakers Pipeline literally has the floor fall from underneath you after a 3 second countdown.

Although not as tall at its counterpart, it is still an impressive 65 foot water slide that will have you swept off your feet (literally).

On this slide, you'll be inside of the tubes throughout the duration of the ride until you finally reach the end and emerge outside.

You'll want to watch this to mentally prepare.


Panic Falls - Body Slides

Three different tubes where you can race vs your friends to see who will make it to the pool first!

This slide is unique in many ways as it'll navigate through sharp turns with a mixture of open and closed tubing. 

This slide is always a very popular ride as it is the ultimate competition for visitors.

Panic Falls - Speed Slides

Located right next to the body slides, are the 2 speed slides. 

Two 50 feet, straight, free fall slides with a very big drop that ends in a giant splash.

If you're planning on racing, Panic Falls is the place to go.

Lazy River

Ripple Rapids

Hop on a see-through tube and relax your day away by floating through this gentle lazy river that spans 1,200+ feet.

The depth of this river is 30" meaning most guests will be able to easily walk through it if they decide that they're done floating.


You'll also float by several lifeguards while drifting around the park.

Rapid River

Raging Rapids

Unlike Ripple Rapids, this is a very fast moving river ride that simulates whitewater rapids.

Visitors will make their way through waterfalls, tunnels, and rapids while anxiously awaiting what adventure their next turn will hold.

Hang on to your tube and prepare to get soaked!

Wave Pool

Breakers Bay

This 350,000 gallon wave pool simulates ocean-like waves providing maximum fun.

The waves are on a 5 minutes on and 5 minutes off system, which gives you plenty of time to prepare for the waves, or relax while they're off.

The pool depth starts at 0 feet and the closer that you move towards the 'Valleyfair' sign, the deeper it gets until it reaches 6 feet.


Life jackets are available, and children under 48" are required to wear one.

Life guards are positioned on both sides of the wave pool to ensure everyone is safe at all times.

Family Raft Ride

Hurricane Falls

A giant multi person family raft ride that will give you an experience of a lifetime.

You and your group will be laughing and hanging on as the raft makes its way down while spinning and navigating tough turns until finally reaching the end.. Straight into the pool!

This is a must do experience if you're visiting the park in a group, as afterwards it is something that you'll be talking about for years to come.

Kids Water Play Area

Splash Station

Designed for younger visitors, the Splash Station is a small area consisting of shallow water, and a structure full of pipes where water is leaking out from all sorts of directions to provide younger visitors the ultimate fun.

Beach chairs are also available in on the edge of this water area for parents to be able to relax and still keep a watchful eye.

Barefoot Beach

Buckets, slides and ultimate fun. A family friendly splash pad consisting of almost an acre in length, it's a bit different from the splash station.

Where the splash station has shallow water, barefoot beach doesn't have a pool area but has larger water structures that visitors will be able to walk on and climb, along with water fountain spouts poking out from the floor.

Some nice features of this area include containing shaded areas and there are also beach chairs positioned all around the area.

Veteran Tips

Hot Floor

The ground gets really hot due to the sun, and this can become a problem for you when you're barefoot walking around the water park.

An easy solution to this is investing in some water shoes or aquatic socks!

According to Soak City's Water Park information site "Aqua socks and aquatic style footwear are permitted on Hurricane Falls, Ripple Rapids, Raging Rapids, Splash Station, Breakers Bay, and Barefoot Beach." 

Cabana Rentals

Rent a Cabana! Cabanas often sell out so you'll want to reserve your cabana in advance.

Cabanas are an additional cost.

You can reserve your cabana directly through Valleyfair.


Lifejackets are complimentary for all guests.


Lockers are available for use right next to the bathhouses. Lockers are available in different sizes and they use electronic pin codes for maximum security.
