This decision will be made prior to 9am. In this case, all Reserved Day passes will be contacted and offered a refund or you can rebook for another day. Any Day passes will be honoured on any other open day.
If we do decide to open, all passes are valid.
In the case of cooler temperatures or rain in the forecast, please check our website or call our information line before your visit.
If the park is already open:
In the event we are forced to close the facility in the middle of the operating day due to extreme weather and that temporary closure persists for more than one hour, the park will close for the day and all guests will be rebooked.

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 rental fee 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.

Lifejackets are available free of charge to non-swimmers. They may be obtained at the Shining Springs Pool in the waterpark.

Appropriate swimwear is required and subject to park approval. No jeans, pants with rivets, or buckles chains allowed. Riders are not permitted to wear sunglasses, glasses or water shoes on the slides.
Guests with prosthetic devices, orthopedic braces or missing limbs 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.
The Cannonbowl and Crossbow have a weight restriction of 250 pounds on the single tubes, and a 400-pound total on the double tubes between the two people.
Personal flotation devices must be Transport Canada approved and be approved by staff before use. All personal flotation devices for someone under 90lbs must be self-righting.
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. Additionally, guests are not permitted to hold glasses on the tube slides as this would prevent them from maintaining the correct riding position. Guests who wish may sign a waiver at the first aid station allowing them to hold glasses while riding the body slides. Guests may also borrow a glasses case that can be worn on the wrist when on the tube slides while maintaining the correct riding position. The glasses cases are available on a first-come, first-serve basis from the first aid station.
Goggles or facemasks which cover the eyes and nose are not permitted.
The Cannonbowl and Crossbow tube slides have a weight restriction of 250 pounds on the single tubes, and a 400-pound total on the double tubes between the two people.
The Wharf Pedal Boats and the Galleon Pedal Boats have a weight restriction of 500 pounds per boat.
For the other rides at the park, such as the Buccaneer Bay Bullet, Crazy Sub, Pumpkin Patch and Surf’s Up, the restraints must be able to engage correctly. Because bodies come in all shapes and sizes and factors such as height and weight distribution also come into play, whether the restraints can engage correctly can only be determined on site with the ride operator.
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 cash, Visa, Mastercard, Interac and American Express.
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.
