Christmas is here – a little bit early – at Soak City Waterpark San Diego. This Friday, Saturday and Sunday (the 20th-22nd), the second annual Christmas in July charity event is taking place at this fun and interactive water park.
Soak City teams up with the United States Marine Corps to collect toys for those children in need during the holidays. Christmas in July is an event that Knott’s Berry Farm Theme Park in Anaheim, CA has been putting on for years. It is the second time that the event has been held at the Soak City San Diego location.
Celebrate the Christmas holiday in the warmer seasons. If you’re looking for the perfect opportunity to give back, then bring to the park a new and unwrapped toy and donate it to the children in need. Then, enter the park for the chance to have fun. Santa Claus is even on the guest list!
At Soak City, you can enjoy all the great slides, attractions, shopping and more. Tube slides, solo slides, group slides, wave pools, kids’ activities, lazy rivers and more are all available for your enjoyment. On Pacific Spin, the newest attraction at the park, you will hold on tight to your inner tube as you and your friends or family members drop into a 132-foot tunnel, down 75 feet and into 5,000 gallons of water. At Balboa Bay, you can soak up some sun, then tackle the waves in the 500,000-gallon pool. Dick’s Beach House gives guest of all ages and sizes the chance to enjoy hands-on watery fun.
A candy shop and a surf shop are also located onsite for you to bring home any souvenirs or try out some delicious treats. If you want the chance to sink your teeth into more than just candy, there are several restaurants, including Surf Daddy’s Pizza, Senorita Jalapeno and Dippin’ Dots Sundae Shop.
After you’ve helped some kids in need and enjoyed a day of fun in the sun during Christmas in July, head back to your hotel for an evening of rest and relaxation. Avoid the discomfort of traveling far distances in a wet bathing suit and stay at the Rodeway Inn, Best Western Americana Inn or Quality Inn & Suites, all conveniently less than four miles away.
