Sunset River

Destination Relaxation!

A day at Knott’s Soak City is packed with all kinds of amazingly awesome fun – but can also be amazingly tiring. We totally get it. Just remember that when you’re at Knott’s Soak City, you’re on vacation, so be sure to relax like it! Take a well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of non-stop amusement park life at our Sunset River and let those cares just float away. On this classic lazy river, you can nestle down into a colorful, cushy inner tube, put your shades on, lie back and let the gentle current do all the work of advancing you down and around the river. You’ll meander down the 1,780 foot long waterway to a destination of pure relaxation and enjoy some delightful scenery along the way. Sunset River is a great way for everyone in the family to cool off and chill out.

Water depth for this attraction is 2 ft. 6in. 

Height Requirement: Children who are less than 42" tall barefoot must be accompanied by a supervising companion*.
