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 a specific day.
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.
Yes, or you can purchase one for $1. As our safety checks and the nature of our rides may not allow for guests and staff to self distance, guests and staff will be required to wear a mask while waiting in line, loading, riding, and unloading all of the rides, for the entire duration of the ride. Guests will not be required to wear masks in the waterpark area, while swimming or on slides. While areas within the park allow for physical distancing, it is recommended that guests wear masks throughout their stay. Hand sanitizer is available in multiple locations to assist with proper donning and doffing of masks. Children who are too young to wear a mask, ie children under 36″, or who are unable to remove the mask without assistance, and those with medical reasons, will not be required to wear a mask. Staff will be trained in the proper procedures for donning and doffing non-medical masks.
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.
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.
In a typical year, lockers are available in the waterpark section of the park on a pay per use basis. The cost per use is $1. For 2020, these lockers will be taped off as cleaning between uses can not be ensured.
In order to protect our animals, water quality and our guests, pets are not permitted within the park. We do have a limited number of shaded kennels available near the parking lot available on a first come, first serve basis. A refundable deposit is required for a lock, key and water dish.
Certainly! Shining Waters Family Fun Park has over 80 picnic tables within the property, including the beautiful Stewart Homestead Community Park. You may also picnic on the large shaded deck at Riddle's Take-Out. We do not allow coolers in the central waterpark to prevent glass breakage and reserve the right to search any cooler to protect the safety of our patrons.
Shining Waters Family Fun Park has a large, FREE, parking lot!
Lifejackets are available free of charge to non-swimmers. They may be obtained at the first aid station in the waterpark. We will add "used" bins near current life jacket racks so we can sanitize them for reuse.
Both single and double tubes are included in your admission charge so that you may enjoy our waterslides with a family member!
Appropriate swimwear is required and subject to park approval. No jeans, pants with rivets, buckles chains or bikini thongs allowed. Riders are not permitted to wear sunglasses, glasses or water shoes on the slides.
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 preexisting 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 any park activities under this policy will qualify for a special reduced rate at the ticket booth.
Our slides are designed by a world leader in safety, but there are a few restrictions. Our duck slide on Turtle Cove Splash Pad can be enjoyed by children of all ages, although we would recommend that younger children wear a swim diaper, available in our gift shop.
The Slingshot and Catapult are designed to be enjoyed by children over 42" tall. These traditional body slides have a unique run-out design, so the water is never deeper than 6- 8 inches. This is done to make younger children more comfortable and improve safety.
The Cannonbowl and Crossbow are tube slides. All sliders on the Cannonbowl must be over 48" tall, but riders over 42" tall can be accompanied on the Crossbow by a responsible rider over 48" tall.
Personal flotation devices must meet Department of Transportation standards and be approved by staff before use. Footwear, belt buckles, and pants with rivets or other sharp objects are not permitted on slides. To prevent damage and the introduction of glass or foreign objects to our water systems; loose objects including glasses are not permitted on the slides. Guests who wish may sign a waiver at the first aid station allowing them to hold glasses while riding the body slides. Guests are not permitted to hold glasses on the tube slides as this would prevent them from maintaining the correct riding position.
Goggles or facemasks which cover the eyes and nose are not permitted.
Shining Waters Family Fun Park is a general admission park and pricing is based on all visitors paying the charge. This is traditional for this type of park as many of the activities within the park cannot restrict access to paying customers only. Please note that children under 36" tall do not pay the admission charges. If we were to move to a pay per ride basis, we would have to increase prices and increase staffing to restrict access to various attractions. We wish to avoid this and have selected the general admission approach to ensure the most enjoyable visitor experience for all of our guests.
We are pleased to accept Visa, Mastercard, Debit and American Express. Cash can be used in exceptional circumstances.
This is not an exclusive rental, the facility will be open to other guests.
