I've been returning to Sandspit almost yearly since I was a child. A traditional little maritime amusement park, nothing to jump up and scream about, but a great park for kids and young teen 'timers. A wide variety of rides, though simple, and a great assortment of games too. Not much shade, so be sure to bring sunscreen and water.... More

We spent three days at Sandspit this summer with our 12 year old niece, 6 year old nephew and three large dogs. The park is great for everyone, and the fact that leashed dogs are accepted is way above excellent in terms of customer service !!! the park prices are reasonable and there is something for everyone to do!

This is a pretty good fun park that kids under 12 will enjoy. The park is like a fair that's permanently set up. Most of the rides are rides you would expect to find at any fair - the scrambler, tilt-a-whirl, ferris wheel, etc. etc. The roller coaster is decent and is their best ride. The go-cart track isn't that... More

All four kids had something they loved to ride! Really great for all ages. Had to figure out on my own that the bracelets were the way to go, and they really were! Buying individual tickets would have given us 10 minutes instead of 2 hours! Wish the go-karts were included!

We took our three girls here for the day and they had a blast. It is more appropriate for kids 6-12. Only a few rides for adults and older teens might be bored for the cost. It is expensive but we felt more value here than Avonlea Village. The only thing I would not pay extra for again were the... More

We always comment out clean the facilities are and the staff is presentable. The only complaint would be regarding the bumper boats. My son finished the evening smelling very strongly of gasoline. Something was leaking and my son's clothing absorbed the gas. Not nice. But other then that, we all had a terrific time.

Great little amusement park to take the kids to. The cyclone was the best ride but was shocked that the staff wasn't watching the height restriction for this ride as there were a few kids that were definitely under the height restriction and went on; however, where were the parents for this too......All in all a great time.....

The sandpit reminds me of the travelling amusement carnivals that travel from town to town throughout parts of Canada. It has midway type rides and a few headliner attractions such as the roller coaster, the Cyclone. My kids enjoyed it and they got to ride on several attractions multiple times due to our arriving very early. The park can easily... More
