I have been going to Castle Park on and off again for over 30 years. I have to say that it is really run down. Golf Course needs to be re-painted and turf replaced. I am handicapped and I was shocked that I had to pay the entrance fee even though I am unable to ride the rides. I was... More

My family traveled to So. Cal. last week for a long needed vacation and we had one day to take the kids to a park and decided on Castle Park. I realize we weren't going to get the quality of a place like Disneyland for $16 for the day, but what we got wasn't worth $0.16! Most of the rides... More

First of all, adults and older teens do NOT visit this park. Children under 36 inches won't be able to get on rides--even with an adult. However, typically a three year old child will meet this height requirement and have a BlAsT! There are plenty of rides for these small children to keep them happy for hours! Elementary children also... More

I took my brothers here and we went to Buccaneer Cove which is the little water park inside Castle Park. I have to be honest, after reading reviews on here and on Yelp I was apprehensive about coming, but had already purchased my tickets online (10 per person, definitely reasonable). My brothers are 9 and 11, and they had a... More

Went with family on vacation to play mini golf. One course out of four was working but was not told until we were trying to change over to the only working course. Still left other three open even though they know they are eating balls, no water, faulty equipment. If you go any time late in the evening as it... More

Worst experience ever!! The only spots available to sit are directly in the sun and who cares if your pregnant..they don't!! They only care if u breast feed. Even being a guest here it is miserable. Rides are constantly shutting down. Not enough staff and no misters throughout the park. Not to mention the swarm of bees you can see... More

Everything in the park is somehow damaged, or just completely broken, the miniature golf course was terrible, all the carpets were frayed and ripped up, the starting points were not glued down correctly, limited shade all the way around.. there was dirt and leaves all over every single course looks like it hasn't been cleaned off in months... not one...

My wife of 27 years desclosed to me she had never been miniature golfing. "You're kidding", I said. But she wasn't. Not knowing what these places are like these days, gangs and all that, I decided to take her 'golfing' mid-week in hopes of avoiding any problems. $10 each. Virtually had the place to ourselves. My wife had a ball... More
