Sandspit Amusement Park

Sandspit is PEI’s classic amusement park with more than 15 carnival favourites for all ages.

If you are a thrillseeker, ride the Cyclone roller-coaster, the longest roller coaster in Atlantic Canada, or try the 70-foot high ferris wheel. And if you are feeling brave, strap into the Cliffhanger.

Or, for more family fun, cool off on the bumper-boats. Then take a swing on our miniature golf course. Try your hand at one of our old-fashioned games or enjoy a tasty carnival treat.

Reservations are required, so please book your passes online before you visit. Please be sure to read through our operational policies before your purchase.

Reserve Your Passes

For 2021, in order to keep our guests and staff safe, we are limiting capacity in the park. In order to manage the number of guests in the park at a time, we are requiring our guests to purchase their passes in advance. This will also allow us to have a record of the contact information for all the purchasers in the event that contract tracing is required. We have changed our open hours to day and evening hours. Day passes will be valid from from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and evening passes from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm. When purchasing your passes, you’ll be directed to pick a day or evening your passes will be valid for. All guests entering the park must pay the admission charge. Children under 36″ are free. Guests who wish to change their reservation may do so up to 24 hours in advance by logging into their account and following the rebooking process there. All reservations are non-refundable. You will receive your passes by email. This email will include Terms & Conditions, which you should review. Please save your passes to your phone, and have them ready to scan when you arrive at the park.

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.
