New Tube Slide Opens At Knott's Soak City San Diego

Chula Vista, CA -- Knott's Berry Farm's San Diego Water Park, Soak City has added a major new attraction this season that will have your head, and body as well, spinning! Pacific Spin is now open and it takes the fun of tubing to a whole new level.

Riders of Pacific Spin will find themselves blasting down into a 132-foot-long tunnel, then dropping a stomach-churning 75 feet into the mouth of a six-story funnel. The ride's distinctive four-person cloverleaf-shaped tubes hug the inside of the funnel as riders pitch back and forth in 5,500 gallons of swirling water. The thrilling escapade culminates in a waterfall splash that deposits riders into a cool catch pool below. This action-packed water adventure carries 700 passengers per hour at a maximum speed of 35 feet per second!

"Pacific Spin is a fantastic addition to our water park," said Marty Keithley, vice president and general manager of Soak City San Diego. "I can't wait to see the faces of our riders as they take on one of the wildest slides in Southern California!"

Pacific Spin's unique design was created by the Canadian company ProSlide and was awarded the amusement industry's 2003 Golden Ticket Award for Best Water Park Ride and the IAAPA 2003 Best New Product Award in the Water Park Category.

Pacific Spin joins the ranks of Soak City's already impressive collection of tube and body slides including Riptide, Point Break, Beach Blaster, Surf Advisory and Silver Strand.

Soak City Water Park San Diego is open daily through Sept. 5, 2005.
