When Valleyfair opened in 1976, Valleyfair had no water related attractions, but two years later, the Flume was added, and was the only water attraction through 1983. In 1983, three waterslides were added to a new area of the park. This area of the park was dubbed "Liquid Lightning" until the park added more attractions in 1992 and changed the name to Whitewater Country Waterpark. For the 2009 season, Valleyfair changed the name of the waterpark from White Water Country Waterpark to Soak City. With the name change came new attractions and additions. Valleyfair added a brand new wavepool named Breakers Bay. Along with the new wavepool came other new features such as new cabanas, a new shower and changing area, new tube and locker rentals, and a new merchandise and food stand. 2009 marked the largest expansion in the waterpark's history, and the expansion nearly doubled the size of the waterpark before 2009.
For 2010, Soak City has no major additions, but is still included with Valleyfair admission! So when it's blazing hot out, and you want a nice free way to cool off, just head over to Soak City for some soaking fun in the sun.
