Took the grandchildren to the park ages 8,10 and 12. They had a wonderful time. Went to the water slides just after opening as they get very busy with lineups as the the day goes on. Lots for kids to do while at the park.

Unlike any other fun park we have ever been to, Shining Waters feels like a family operated place. They could very easily gouge you for every penny but you never feel like you have been taken; definitely not opportunistic. There are so many activities for...More

We've done this park twice. The first time the kids were younger and enjoyed it. This time after two hours the teenagers were ready to leave. Like most waterparks the waits for the slides were long. I think there is a lot for smaller children...More

We thought we'd take the kids here for a fun day. Well, after about 3hrs the kids were ready to go. Huge lineups for the limited amount of slides, and nothing really got the kids blood pumping on anything else. Probably wouldn't recommend unless you...More

It doesn't look like much from the road but it is a great park. It is well laid out, with a wide assortment of activities for all ages. The lines really weren't bad for anything, even the water slides moved well.More

Shining Waters is spread out over 30 acres, so if you have young children that would use a stroller or a wagon, feel free to bring it along!
