Bringing Soak City to Kings Island

Sure, it may still look like a lot of dirt being pushed around, but Kings Island is very hard at work giving their water park, newly renamed Soak City, a $10 million makeover.  The park is making progress on changes and additions, which include a brand new 650,000 gallon wave pool.

The park will also receive a new entrance so that guests may easily access Soak City during their visits.  New photos show that this part of the expansion is quite far along at this point.  The wave pool has had much of its concrete base poured as well.

Other changes will include the lazy river becoming an action river, filled with water gags and other effects.  New amenities will abound, including additional cabanas, lounging space, family changing rooms, and sand volleyball courts.
