    We have visited PEI multiple times with our kids and we always purchase a 7 day pass to Shining Waters. If you are going to visit the park more than once in a week it is worth purchasing the 7 day pas...  more »

    Come here multiple times, great place for kids 3 - 14 years old. Anyone older than that will probably not be very satisfied with the ride selection. I must say however that the two largest slides are quite good for all ages, but on a busy Saturday, expect a 50minute wait. The line ups are pretty crazy during peak time so I'd recommend coming on a weekday at lunch or super. Also most rides are quite run down and in need of a good scrub down... decently priced though.

    Enjoyed the day with our three year old. The few things I thought needed attention were, some adult staff to light a fire under the student staff. The work ethic was weak. The other thing that would be nice is, a few more water attractions for the under 42" height group. Overall, we would go back, just wouldn't be a day trip to PEI. It would have to a longer stay .

    Waterslides are OK , nice place for younger families if your children will go on the slides. I'd say kids a bit older say past 11 will probably be bored pretty quickly of anything save the waterslides. I think you get my point , on a cold wet day probably not worth it. However on a warm wet day , you could enjoy the slides and have no line ups.

    Just came back from a great day at Shining Waters. Took 4 kids from 12-4:30. Lines ups were reasonable, new roller coaster was awesome! Clean facilities, polite staff. Just great!

    The lineups for the water slides can be long, but there's lots of other things to do, especially for kids aged 2-6. The kids loved it.
