As part of the year pass to Knott's Berry Farm, we also get entry into Soak City. There are three locations but we like the one in Palm Springs. This is a delightful place to go. There is very little traffic, the park has never been so crowded, you can't move around and it is closer to us than Buena Park.
What we really like is that it is clean. The staff spends lots of time keeping it that way. As a family, we enjoy the wave pool and the lazy river. It's enough to get really wet without all the drama of the rides. For more mature visitors, it is fun.
This was my month to provide our homeschooling group with a field trip. I choose the California Citrus State Historic Park. When our child was small, we were docents there and did school tours and other events the park had scheduled. This was a real treat for me because someone else did the tour although I still remember all the stuff I used to share.
The park is beautiful and for a day trip, it is really nice to enjoy the citrus trees and the large grass park. It's great for kids because they have lots of room to roam while still being close enough to keep an eye on. The museum tells the story of citrus and gives an overview of how citrus put Riverside on the map. We had a great time.
Proud new owner of season passes, we went to Knott's Berry Farm on Wednesday, January 18, 2012. It was a interesting trip. There was no one there and all we had to do was to walk up and get on the rides. There were times when we didn't even see any people. That's not normal and it was unnerving. Still, since I have never seen it without crowds, there was more time to visit favorite attractions and complain about the changes.
