I remember this place when I was a kid and it was kept up and over the tip. I just went back and took my own kids and I was amazed at how much had changed and the expense that it was now. You are better off going to Disney or a large park.

We took our 2 children ages 10, and 2 here and we all had an amazing time. They were doing their Halloween activities on this day where there was a costume contest, pumpkin carving and trick or treating. At 7pm they opened the after dark part and the creepy clowns came out. They were very respectful and left the younger... More

It used to be a nice place, but I guess they are just not maintaining the place. It was disappointing to see Castile park like this. Golf course poorly maintained. Used to come with my kids here The arcade no longer has the video games it used to have. Looks more like games you get tickets to exchange for prices.... More

Families can stay busy on th mini golf course and there are rides but this place is mostly for children. Very large arcade with lots of prizes to win.

This place really is amazing, after reading some reviews I was a little skeptical but it was great. My wife, two little ones, and myself are Disneyland season pass holders and we had a blackout day that we couldn't go into the park and just wanted a cheap water park. Found this place and got way more that we bargained... More

Older but very well maintained smaller amusement and water park, also featuring four miniature golf courses. Water park consists of four different slides and play areas. Amusement park has a log ride as well as assorted additional rides for all ages and an arcade area. Most of the rides are for children 48" or taller, but there is still a... More

This parks has gone so downhill. I used to go here all the time when I was a kid 20-30 years ago and it was a FANTASTIC little park. Parking was 10 bucks which is crazy. Those are straight up Disneyland prices. Now half the rides are broken down or closed, they ran out of ICEE drinks, the soda fountains... More

This place has gone into bad repair. The arcade games need to be replaced with ones that work and the carpet inside need to be removed. The rides are okay for about an hour of fun with the kids if you don't mind waiting in line for a 30 second ride.

We had not visited Castle Park for a while and it was sad to see it in such a sad state of disrepair. We played miniature golf and it was clear they are just letting it run down with little to no maintenance. We paid $30 for 3 people to play. I would have asked for our money back but... More
