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

3 kids had a great time and burned some energy. Went to snack bar for a treat and had good, real ice cream at a reasonable price.

This is a nice place for kids to play and for parents to relax. I like that there are comfy leather couches and chairs for the parents, the food is not overpriced and the staff was very friendly. My six year old grandson loved it.

As a dad with two young kids, Castaway Play is an excellent place for the kids to let off steam. It's the kids that matter here...if they are enjoying the place then so be it for all the other negative reviews. I've been to similar locales in the UK and in India and Castaway is the best one I've been... More
