Took my grandson here for the first time. We won't be back. What a dump. You pay to get in and do nothing. Way over priced and dirty. For what you spend here, you could have gone to Knotts Berry Farm. Very poorly run operation, no security and big amusement park pices. DONT BOTHER

WE used to take our girls here when they were smaller. For under $10 they could ride all the rides but the log ride which required a special ticket I believe. With the price of Disneyland these days, this is an EXCELLENT CHOICE to entertain younger kids without busting the wallet. A family of 4 can still get in for... More

This place is not worth going to at all. Way over priced on everything. Icee was 8.50 for a small, you pay for parking , and just about everything else . The mini-golf course was not well kept and looked beat down. Two of the courses were closed due to the workers not bothering to clean it. Highly recommended not... More

We have gone to castle park several times in all its ok for the price you pay its usual like 9.99 to get in the only problem is that even if you don't want to ride you still have to pay which I think that should not be that way. This visit we went for the castle dark event they... More

On my first visit, I had a wonderful time! This last time was very different. We bought 3 tickets online for my daughter and son. When we arrived the park was closed. So, we had to figure out what to do. Not an easy task! Now, I am stuck with 3 tickets to use and my daughter lives up north.... More

I see there are a lot of negative reviews here and on other sites so I guess we were lucky. My girls fave rides were the Ghostblaster and the Flying Saucer. Most of the rides were open with the exception of 3 including the log flume, which would have been very welcome on a 95 degree day. At least we... More

Sadly Castle Park has become a little run down over the past few years. It appears as though not a lot of maintenance has been done on it. Several things obviously need to be repaired or replaced. However there are four entertaining courses to play as well as an arcade and a carnival area with rides.

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

Caslte Park is a very average amusement park. For the second straight visit the log ride was shut down. The lines at the concession stands were insane. A little bit more staffing would go along way.
