Day full of family fun!
Aug 2021
This place is awesome. Don't let those naysayers discourage you. You get your moneys worth on this place. We took children of the following ages, 13, 12, 7, and 5. The 13 and 12 year old lasted 5 hours of fun, and the 7 and 5 year old lasted open to close. Yes some attractions were closed and some needed replacement, it's a pandemic, even if they ordered it, it would be on back order. The staff were so helpful and polite, we couldn't get over their politeness. When we saw staffs changing posts from ride to ride, they could be seen picking up any trash they came across. The place is spotless. We will definitely be back.

This park has seen better days
Aug 2021 • Family
Every fun park reaches its peak eventually, and this park is past its peak. While the water slides are still the main attraction, there really is zero water park competition in PEI and that’s so why people still come here. Many of the other features and amenities are becoming sorely neglected. It became quite obvious that this park is severely understaffed and should limit its amenities and guest numbers as a result or close its doors. I realize many businesses are struggling post COVID, but the lack of staff, lack of enthusiasm by most staff, lack of amenities (couldn’t find a working vending machine anywhere in the park), and lack of maintenance of almost everything is a serious game changer. Go somewhere else unless you just want to go on water slides and wait in lines for understaffed amenities.

Family Fun Day
Aug 2021 • Family
We visited mid August 2021 and had an EXCELLENT day at Shining Waters. We were two families with 4 adults and a 6,5 and 1 year old. In our opinion, this park is great value for the price. There were activities to keep them all entertained. Would recommend visiting early in the day as from 10-1 lineups were short for water slides, but after lunch crowds came and they got significantly longer. Lines for rides remained low throughout the day.

Food options were either Beavertails or Fries / chicken Fingers/Poutine at the takeout. Around $10 for a combo . Poutine was delicious!

I went with my teenage kids and my younger kids. We all had a great time. Lots of things to do even when you’re not swimming.

Summer fun in COVID times
Jul 2021
This was our first trip to PEI since COVID began. We got here only one week after the Atlantic Bubble opened up, so nothing was very busy. It was great to get back to Shining Waters. At this stage, about 75% of the park is open to the public, but that may change as the summer goes on. There were a couple of attractions that we thought could have been open like the walking trail and the pirate ship, but it’s understandable that most indoor attractions were closed for now.

Bear in mind that right now the canteen with burgers and hot dogs is closed as well, so make sure to bring food with you.

The staff were helpful and cheery. The park is only open on certain days but we were told that as summer goes on they will likely add more days per week. You also need to have booked ahead of time to go there. The water park was fully open and the kids always enjoy themselves.

There were no lineups for anything. There were a perfect amount of people compared to other years when everything was full to capacity. The time to go is now!

Overall, some attractions looked like they’ll be closed for all of this season, but as the summer progresses, they may open some.

Great full day with kids.

The rides are limited but no lineups. Not much selection for food at the park, the Subway advertised is not on site and has to be ordered from an app and is delivered at specific times...

Great family day
Aug 2020 • Family
My sons, aged 10 & 12, had a great time! Yes, the lines for the tubes and water slides are long, but you need to expect that. Given Covid and the restrictions to let them open, I think they have done a great job! $20 per person for a day pass (10am-6pm) is very budget friendly. You can bring your own food which is fantastic as well.

2 is too young
Aug 2020 • Family
Shining waters was lovely and the kids had a good time. I must say I was a bit disappointed that the young staff wasn’t better trained to have a bit more compassion during these difficult times. My son is 2. We live in Nova Scotia masks are mandatory so we had one and he wears it sometimes but to not let his ride the dry rides when he doesn’t want to wear a mask is ridiculous. I see the season for the mask rule and we comply when we can but he’s 2 end of discussion. If he rips it off because he doesn’t understand Or cries that he doesn’t want to put it on it that moment. I should not have to argue with a teenager to let him ride the rides. My 6 year old niece is old enough to understand and we had no issues. A 2 year old with no understanding of what’s going on who complies more then not should be exempt from this rule and they should take the two minutes to sanitize his spot after the ride rather then argue that he won’t be allowed to ride. 2 is too young.

Great family day
Aug 2019
Family visit in summer of 2019, and we had a great day.
Although not inexpensive, we have nothing like this where we live, and our kids ( 3 and 5) had a blast.
Our three year old didn’t meet the requirement to go on the bigger slides which he would have loved, but he still had fun in the smaller kids area.
