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

We went here initially on a Friday evening from the Hollywood area when the web site said the would be open from 5-9pm. We arrived around 7:00 and found the park closed. We gave them another shot that Sunday after calling to verify they were open. We should have just written this place off after our experience with them being... More

Castle Park had always been where we had gone every weekend as children, so this last weekend we made the trip there with our little boys. It is now only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon until eight. Which is still ample time to ride everything but kind of inconvenient if you happen to be in town during the... More

If your kids are young… They will enjoy it, because they enjoy anything! You got a love kids! However, when you are the adult paying for it, I think that you want a little more value for your money. It doesn't help that everyone is a little undertrained and probably underpaid… It looks great from the freeway at night with... More
