  • We had a great experience and for things to do with a young child in our case a 5 year old there was not much there she was not able to do. She had a blast and there’s much more then just water activi...  more »
  • The water slides were so much fun! There was often a wait for tubes but the lines for the slides without tubes was much smaller and just as much fun.  more »
  • Love, Love, love this place. Our 5 year old has a blast as do her parents. It is a great place for toddlers to adults. As usual, we will return!  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.
