We bought the full week family pass plus one for our family and it was well worth it. We expected the kids to get "shining water'ed out" but they wanted to go back every single day for the week and we did. Our kids' age range is from 1-7. One thing we were surprised at is how many things there... More

Our kids are in the 4 - 9 age range and this park was perfect for them. We were here the last week of August, weather was sunny and warm, so we really enjoyed the water features, but it was also nice to be able to change the pace a little and take in some of the other park attractions.... More

There's 4 main water slides varying in size. 2 that smaller kids are allowed on and 2 that are meant for people over 48 inches. There's a short forest path with a few attractions in it meant mostly For kids, but still fun for all. There's also a small coaster. My son's first coaster experience and he loved it. It's... More

We visited Shining Waters with four kids aged 7 to 10. Cost for a family of six was average - certainly less than an evening at the movies these days! The kids really liked the waterslides, except for the wait: the lineup was long on the day we went, and the double-lineup system for the tube slides just isn't efficient.... More

Waited almost an hour in line to get a tube, in order to get into a second line for the actual slide. Other slides were faster. Modest water park facilities, and some cute attractions. Very busy, bring your own food is definitely recommended.

My sister and I took my two nephews, one who is 6 years old and one who was 3 months old. We arrived at around 10 am and stayed until 2 pm. They allow you to take food and drinks into the park which is great. Myself and my oldest nephew did almost every attraction. We really enjoyed the Waterpark... More

This park is very nice for younger kids and has some feautures for older. It is defently worth you money for the water park side, and they have a pool and slide for younger kids too. The waterslides are great but, they do not have many tubes to sit in as you must wait in line for a tube, and... More

My boys loved here, we had slide and ride ticket so could come and go as we liked over the holiday. We tended to go in the morning and then leave early afternoon. Park was busy but we always found space, rides for all, mixture of wet and dry. My kids loved turtle cove! Plenty of places for picnic or... More

Adam H, General Manager at Shining Waters Family Fun Park, responded to this review

Sarah, Thanks so much for your comments on your day at our park! The Slide and Ride pass is indeed an incredible value and I hope you had an equally exciting time at our sister park Sandspit. Arriving early as you did is a great tip to avoid mid afternoon lineups, especially when you have the freedom to come and... More
