Fun, but sometimes a little overcrowded

I've been taking my son here for several years now. He enjoys it, but there are times when it is pretty crowded. On rainy days or during holiday weeks, I've had trouble finding... read more

I've been taking my son here for several years now. He enjoys it, but there are times when it is pretty crowded. On rainy days or during holiday weeks, I've had trouble finding a place to sit while he plays. I'm a teacher, and I like to take papers with me to grade. I see other parents reading, watching t.v....

Today we visited Castaway, and our experience was MORE then AMAZING!!! The night staff was completely accommodating! My children stopped in to take advantage of the 4-9 pm Unlimited Laser Tag, Unlimited Bounce Houses, Unlimited Play Structure, Personal Pizza and Pop for only $20. The staff treated my children like queens as they wore them completely out playing along with... More

I've been here many times, and I even had my son's birthday here. No, I don't love coming here, but my kids do- once in a great while. I'm sure it's not the cleanest structure, but are any of them? Just take precautions- sanitize your little ones when they are finished playing. We forgot our socks, and they gave us... More

Ok let's face it, you only go to these type of places for kids. So, as an adult, if you expect to be pampered and waited on hand and foot you will be disappointed. Younger kids (10 and under) will love this place. Laser tag is fun for one round and the younger ones can play on the structures. You... More

My Grandson loves this place to climb and run on all the structures. Pizza is okay, and plenty of room for resting and enjoying watching him run all over the place. Lounging chairs are great for the adults to sit and watch.

Food is over priced and terrible. Great fun for the kids. Tough to find a place to sit with all the coats left on the chairs. Lots of lounge chairs with nobody sitting in them. Kids dump their coats and go okay while adults search for a seat

Decided to have my child's 2nd birthday party here, was worried it was a bit pricey and many mediocre reviews but we loved it! We had toddlers- teenager guests and everyone was happy. Play structure and bounce for the young and laser tag for the older ones. Teenage Staff was on top of everything and made it a fun party.... More

I have taken my 4 year old grand daughter here recently after staying away for almost a year. There seems to be an improvement in the cleanliness of the whole area. I still do not recommend even the toddler area to friends, it is a free for all even in that area and my grand daughter was knocked down last... More

I have been here on a couple occasions with my niece and nephew. First, the place is SOOO overpriced. Get ready to pull out the credit card because this place is going to cost you. There is an initial entrance fee that covers the climbing playground. However, laser tag, games, or any other activity costs additional per person, per game.... More
