FAQ

  • Do I have to book a time in advance?

    Yes. For the safety of our guests and staff, we are significantly reducing our capacity to facilitate physical distancing.  In order to manage the number of guests in the park, we are requiring all guests buy online in advance for either a day bracelet, valid from 10:00 to 4:00pm, or evening bracelet, valid from 5:00 to 10:00pm. 

  • I am not doing anything, do I have to pay to get in?

    In a typical year, Sandspit is a pay-as-you-go park so you only have to pay if you are going on the rides. For 2020, as a result of our capacity and pricing adjustments, we are changing to a general admission park.  We have reduced our individual pricing from 2019 pricing as it is now based on all visitors paying the admission charge.

  • What is included in the Day and Evening bracelet?

    Day and Evening Bracelets include unlimited use of all attractions in the park with the exception of the go-karts and old fashioned games for the duration of the bracelet. Day bracelets are only valid from 10:00 to 4:00pm. Evening bracelets are only valid from 5:00 to 10:00pm. All riders are subject to height restrictions.

  • What if I don't have a credit card or debit card to buy online? Can I pay cash?

    You will still need to book your passes ahead of time. Please call us at 902-963-3939  and we will make arrangements with you. 

  • What if I book a ticket and it rains?

    Maritime Fun Group reserves the right to close the park due to weather conditions.  If the decision to close the facility is made prior to the facility opening for the day all guests with existing reservations will be notified by e-mail and SMS and be permitted to rebook.  We will also post up to date information on our social media platforms. 

    In the event we are forced to close the facility in the middle of the operating day due to extreme weather and that weather persists for more than one hour the park will close for the day and all guests will be automatically issued a return pass for the 2021 season. 

  • Can I purchase a weekly or season pass for 2020?

    Due to the capacity limitations we have in place and the change in operational days, we are not able to offer weekly or season passes for 2020, nor are able to honor those already purchased. We know this is a disappointment to our weekly and season pass holders and have contacted those guests who have already purchased these passes with some options. 

  • Can I bring my dog into the park?

    Dogs are permitted provided they are well behaved and kept on a leash. Please be respectful of the park and of other guests by cleaning up after your pet.

  • Can I bring a picnic?

    Certainly! Sandspit has many picnic tables within the property as well as large shaded decks at The Pit Stop Canteen and Tilt-a-Whirl Treats. Alcohol is not permitted in the park under any circumstances.

  • Is there an additional charge for parking?

    Sandspit has a large, FREE, parking lot!

  • Do you provide stroller or wheelchair rentals?

    At this time we are unable to provide stroller or wheelchair rentals.

    Lockers are available near The Pit Stop Canteen on a pay per use basis. The cost per use is $1.

  • Are there restrictions on the rides?

    All of the rides at Sandspit have restrictions based on height.

  • What forms of payment do you accept?

    We are pleased to accept Cash, Debit, Visa, Mastercard, American Express. Cash can be used in exceptional circumstances. 

  • Can I leave the park and come back once I enter the park?

    Absolutely! As long as you keep your bracelet on you can come and go as much as you please for the duration of the bracelet. Keep in mind day bracelets are not valid in the evening and vice versa.

  • Can I bring my portable BBQ, camp stove or Habatchi grill?

    Yes, provided you use it in a safe manner on a non-flammable surface. Also, we have several propane BBQ's available for rental at a cost of $10.00 per hour. Please call ahead to confirm availability.

  • Is there an age requirement for the park?

    Guests must be 12 years of age or older to enter the park unaccompanied.  Children 11 and under must be accompanied by an individual 16 years of age or older.
