The last few summers, we have camped at the Cavendish KOA and walked from the campsite , through a potato field, to spend the day at Shining Waters. There is a good variety of events, boating, rides, mazes, animals, water park and pool. I found that they need to enlarge the pool area, it is very busy on a July... More

We love to come back every year to shining waters. It is costly to go for a day the new pool area needs a better heater it was so cold the day we went

This is a good fun park for small kids under 10 years old. Teenagers and adults will find it a bit lame. Some of the "attractions" are incredibly outdated such as the roller coaster, haunted house, house of mirrors & storybookland, but small kids won't mind. The 4 water slides are pretty good, but there's just not enough of them.... More

We went to Shining waters on a Saturday in late season. It wasn't crowded so it was great. My three year old son loved the smaller water slides in the kiddie section. He loved the shaky bridges and the boat and car rides. The grandparents enjoyed much as well. We had a great day. I think this is a great... More

Shining waters states that it is a water park however there are hardly any slides at all! There was one overcrowded pool with one person watching. The rest of the park is randomly placed "attractions"

We took our son to this park and thought he may have been to old to enjoy as he is a teenager but he had a blast on the water slides....we didn't really go around the park to be able to comment on the other rides and activities available but everything looked busy and enjoyable. The new pool beside the... More

Our family have taken part in the water fun Shining Waters has to offer for the last four years. If your family is planning on spending more than a day in Cavendish you may want to ask about the family pass that enables the family members to enjoy both Shining Waters/and Sandspit. I believe we paid approximately $200.00 for a... More
