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.
