I really wanted to take my family to a mini golf this summer and spotted this by chance on a road trip. It was late in the day so we opted for just the golf and not the whole park. With 4 courses to chose from and few other visitors, we played at our own, slow pace and had a... More

We've gone to Castle Park many times with our kids during the past 15 years, but I was very disappointed this past visit. The park seemed very run down, many rides were not running (our kids got stuck at the top of the log ride when it shut down!), and the staff were not very friendly. The arcade was in... More

There are far more interesting and fun places to take your friends and/or family. Sadly the staff has not changed and are short, rude and unwilling to help. The park isn't well maintained and thus not the cleanest, etc. Taking the time to drive further is the best option here, save yourself a headache and a disappointment. Truly sad as... More

Visited park with my teens and friend. The mini golf are extensive but need to be refurbished and due to the drought there is no water in the "lakes" and waterfalls. There was an adequate number of rides to keep my daughters interested. You can get a cup of ice water for 53 cents and they will fill it up... More

Castle Park was the place to be in the 80’s and somewhat even into the 90’s. The arcade seemed huge and the rides had short lines. I took my wife here to show her where I had a cheap great time growing up. Castle Park appears to be seriously run down now. There aren’t many options in Riverside for amusement... More

First time to come they open at 10:00 am but you have to wait until 11:00 am to ride something, then when they have schools tori they do not have more people at the food places and no air conditioning at the arcade. Just for a personal pizza I wait for one hour to get the cashier and another hour... More

Not as crowed as most theme parks. It has a water park and a variety of rides for all ages. The food is good and reasonably priced. The park admission is a great price.

This is the perfect place for the whole family. Lots of things to do and very affordable. Season passes are offered for a very low price. I plan on going often
