I have taken my grandchildren here several times and I finally just bought a yearly pass. Cheaper for me! The kids always have a great time, especially the water park!

We went to Castle Park because we what we thought was a good deal from Costco. I will not return to this place again unless they renovate. The rides are "ok" at best for middle schoolers. But even our 10yr old was bored after an hour of being here. The arcade is DATED, like really really dated. Many of the... More

I remember this place when I was a kid and it was kept up and over the tip. I just went back and took my own kids and I was amazed at how much had changed and the expense that it was now. You are better off going to Disney or a large park.

We took our 2 children ages 10, and 2 here and we all had an amazing time. They were doing their Halloween activities on this day where there was a costume contest, pumpkin carving and trick or treating. At 7pm they opened the after dark part and the creepy clowns came out. They were very respectful and left the younger... More

It used to be a nice place, but I guess they are just not maintaining the place. It was disappointing to see Castile park like this. Golf course poorly maintained. Used to come with my kids here The arcade no longer has the video games it used to have. Looks more like games you get tickets to exchange for prices.... More

Families can stay busy on th mini golf course and there are rides but this place is mostly for children. Very large arcade with lots of prizes to win.

This place really is amazing, after reading some reviews I was a little skeptical but it was great. My wife, two little ones, and myself are Disneyland season pass holders and we had a blackout day that we couldn't go into the park and just wanted a cheap water park. Found this place and got way more that we bargained... More
