We enjoyed the bumper boats, the buccaneer bay pirate ship/ water boats were cool and there was a neat glass/mirror house/maze type thing that was kinda neat. The Water Slides were absolutely amazing... this is where we spent the majority of our day. Our dislikes were that the park as a whole is not laid out very well. Expect lots... More

The park it self is beautiful. My complaint is that there are no signs inside the park to tell you where things are. We asked four of your workers once inside how to get to the scavenger hunt for our little boy. They told us four different places...one of them being the barn...which turned out to be the petting zoo.... More

We were able to get discounted tickets for here through a radio promotion, but regular price for a family of four is $80 for the day, lockers are $1.00 each time you need to access. The staff here was pretty good, but one girl who looked like Anne of Green Gables evil step sister should not be working here. She... More

mweaver27, I'm thrilled your children enjoyed their visit to our park. We designed the facility to be an all day theme park for families of any age but we did our best to specifically cater to families with young children with active imaginations (Just like Anne of Green Gables). I'd also like to respond to a couple of your comments.... More

Great distraction for younger kids (13 and under) on a hot day. Water slides, animals, and small attractions to keep busy for a few hours.

Great place for family fun! The kids pool area was fantastic. We bought the week pass since it was cheaper and were very grateful that we did since after our first visit, we returned to Shining Waters everyday of our 6 day trip to PEI. It was well worth the money and there was a lot of things to keep... More

Upon entering we weren't sure where to start, but headed for the Discovery Woods. There was so much to see and do, so we tried our best to do it all. Our 5 year old finally got to go on his first roller coaster ride and he loved it! The Topsy Turvy cabin freaked our daughter out at first, but... More

We spent the first few hours exploring the park - really enjoyed the Discovery Woods, although some of the activities were broken. Some parts of the park are very run down, so make sure your kids have their tetanus shots up to date! There is a tree house with metal stairs that are quite rusty and several interactive displays that... More

Spent the day at Shining Waters with my family and with a friends family. Kids had a fabulous time on the water slides, in the pool and on the rides and attractions. The kids must have rode the small roller coaster at least 25 times. All in all a great day and a fun attraction for the family.
