“Go to Soak Zone instead.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Sandcastle is located next to a closed factory. It skirts along the muddy Mononghalia River.There are no trees for shade.It has an industrial feel about it.I went there once,one time too many.

“Sandcastle Waterpark”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Sandcastle Park has a couple of high water slides, a pool, and lazy river. It is an average waterpark from those in other cities. This waterpark is used by many city families and children who do not have access to swimming pools near them. The price is rather steep---but if you want the fun--it's there for the having. A problem is that it is not near Downtown Pittsburgh or Southside--it lies near the Homestead area of Pittsburgh which is across the rivers. It is an all day attraction--so if you're up for the drive with a GPS--go for it!

“NEED OF GREAT REPAIR AND IMPROVEMENT”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

After visiting Williamsburg VA Water Country USA, we'd have to say that this place is the pits in Pittsburgh PA! Sad but true. Get it together Parques Reunidos...........it takes more than water to make a slippery slides fun in the sun!

“Fun Time with Friends!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My favorite parts of Sand Castle were going down the water slide on inner tubes, swimming in the wave pool, and the water barrel ride. Good food, fun, and clean.
