Accessibility

At Maritime Fun Group, we wish our guests, regardless of their level of ability, to have a safe and fun-filled day at each of our parks. 

Shining Waters Family Fun Park

Wheelchair Accessibility

 

Shining Waters Family Fun Park is pleased to admit guests arriving in wheelchairs for free. In addition, one caregiver may enter with that guest for free.

 

Shining Waters offers several wheelchair accessible restrooms. These restrooms are located at the front entrance of the park, Bandit’s Barnyard, and at the restaurant.

 

The main pathways at Shining Waters Family Fun Park are paved. There are two wooded areas that do not have paved paths and are uneven.

 

There is a wheelchair available for rent during the visit. You may reserve a wheelchair by calling the park prior to your planned day of entry. We can have it waiting at the front entrance. You may either keep it for the day, or return it to the First Aid Station in the waterpark, once you reach that area.

Access 2 Program

 

We have partnered with the Access 2 Program by Easter Seals Canada to allow guests of any age or disability to bring one caregiver with them to the property for free.

 

When guests with the card arrive at any of our properties, they should notify the front entrance staff that they have the Access 2 card and their caregiver will receive free admission. At Shining Waters, the guest with the card would pay a special $9.50 (in 2019) rate. 

Guests Unable to Ride the Rides Due to Health Reasons

 

Some of our rides restrict riders with pre-existing medical conditions such as neck, back or heart conditions as well as those guests who are pregnant. Guests with these conditions that self-identify at the front entrance will be charged a special medical rate ($9.50 in 2019), will receive a bracelet, and should obey the warnings posted at each particular ride once inside the park.  If in doubt, please ask a park supervisor for clarification.

Policy on Guests with Casts, Prosthesis and Orthopedic Braces in the Waterpark

 

Guests with prosthetic devices or orthopedic braces may enjoy all attractions in the waterpark provided that their particular device was designed for such an activity, that the activity will not aggravate a pre-existing injury and they are able to maintain a correct riding position.   

 

Guests with waterproof arm casts may ride both body slides provided they are able to maintain the correct riding position. They may not ride the tube slides due to the speed and turbulent nature of the ride as well as the necessity for full grip strength and range of motion on the tube.  Guests with leg casts or neck braces may not ride any of the water slides. 

 

Guests who are excluded from park activities under this policy and self-identify to the front entrance staff will qualify for a special medical rate ($9.50 in 2019).

Service Animals

 

Guests identifying their dog as a service animal at the front entrance are permitted entrance to the facility with their animal. 

 

While service animals are in the park they are permitted into all guest accessible areas, except the rides, slides and pools.  Service animals are permitted in all food service locations, washrooms and change rooms.  Service animals are always to remain leashed and well behaved while in the facility.  Those accompanied by service animals are required to clean up after the service animal at all times.

Due to the inherent nature of certain amusement rides, not all rides can be accessed by a wheelchair.  A few potential limitations would be the Landslide, driving the Go-karts (however can accompany as a passenger if the size of the riders permits it) and bumper cars.  Elsewhere, where guests can safely ride, we do our best to accommodate.
