  • For 3 years we used to go there. It was non ending fun for my kids. They enjoyed most of the rides. Loved the farm animal section. The swimming section was their favorite part.

  • 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!
  • I have been coming to PEI since I was a child. Shining waters has been in our adventures the last few years.. I never see them upgrade their equipment and keep things painted looking half decent. With all the money they make in the run of a year you would think they would use all that land they have when you enter into the park and make more rides for toddlers. My 2.5 was too short to ride on anything including the smallest roller coaser ever made . They have the submarine and the little cars that go around ( both lines are always full ) because its the only rides toddlers can go on. It was not a great day weather wise so we didnt attend the waterpark. Anyone entering has to pay 25$ even if you are not going on anything. Waste of money and wont be going back for a good long time. Start updating your park !!! Every year we go thw crowd gets slower and slower and now i see why. Same thing every year. If they didnt get crystal palace equipment it would have never had anything new.
  • This place looked so promising from the outside, but unfortunately the experience of my family and I was far from ideal. My family entered in two groups.. the first group went in around 3pm and paid almost $90 for 4 people (basically the same price as someone who came in the morning and stayed all day). What made the price harder to swallow was 1. they were never advised that they offer a CAA discount which would have saved some money and 2. The bathrooms were disgusting. If you're going to be paying that much money to get in when the park is 3 hours away from closing, you expect the place to be kept in the same shape as at opening. My $90 at 3pm is worth just as much as the person who pays it when the park first opens in the morning with clean bathrooms, and so I feel that I should be provided the same service/cleanliness. To shrug and say the bathroom is filthy because it is near the end of the day just doesn't cut it. There was also a dirty unshaven man stumbling around ogling children and disappearing into the bushes when someone points a camera in his direction. Suuuper super sketchy if you ask me. Whatever you do, keep a firm grip on your children and keep your eyes open. I went into the park at 4pm when there is a slightly reduced rate. It's a good time to go because the lines for the slides and rides are quite a bit shorter. It didn't hurt that some rain showers had just moved through and people were leaving. The bathrooms were still gross though. My 7 year old nieces went to go ride the roller coaster and it wasn't until other family members checked that we realized the locking mechanism on their seat restraint bar was NOT working. The attendant (barely old enough to be able to ride herself) did not check it, and when she was called over she just shrugged and said "well I guess that ones broken then"... um ok... major safety issue.. luckily they switched cars and no one needed to be scraped off the surrounding tarmac (that day at least, I worry for the future). The lawns on the property are poorly maintained, the ponds stink and are choked with algae and muck and one just generally gets the feeling that the ownership here is trying to cut corners and isn't particularly concerned with the well being of either the property or guests. They manage to be finicky about tiny inconsequential rules but completely neglect the major ones. There were more issues, but at this point I don't think any more needs to be said. Will not go back
  • Great value compared with a lot of other amusement parks in the region. Very clean and the addition of the roller coaster was a great change. I'll keep a couple stars until the mirror maze is pulled from service. Its an old, outdated and unsafe ride. The moving parts would pose a hazard if a young one fell and jammed a finger into the steel plates.
