“Great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

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.

“Excellent place to entertain the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

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 too. I like the free Internet for checking work emails, the food is to be as expected - the kids love it. There's plenty of sitting space but get their early if you want to get a comfy sofa. Otherwise, watch out for wet spots from spilt drinks. Overall, it's a decent place...

“Was a lot of fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

we went on a sunday afternoon there werent to many people there and theres a LOT to do there couches are soft its like being at home kinda and the staff was super nice. the food was good too I like how other people there were nice too. the arcade was fun me and my husband played the connect 4 lol there doing some renovations right now so it was a bit dusty. but other than that the place was pretty clean. well as u can expect hahaha with so many little hands touching everything. was cheap too we spent a good part of the day there and only spent i think 40 bucks? thats admitions food drinks games they got toys idk was pretty cheap i thought for how much fun it was. i think im going to do my daughter birthday there, but i dont think it would have been nice to go on a saturday. that just screams way to many kids sunday was perfect. FYI if u got older kids and dont think what day u go matters but if u got little ones like i do smaller crowds on less busy days are much better, but thats anywhere mcdonalds even has that problem...

“Gross”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

dirty, smells and employees are maybe 17 years old, I cringe every time someone tells us that scheduled a birthday party here and were invited.
