This parks has gone so downhill. I used to go here all the time when I was a kid 20-30 years ago and it was a FANTASTIC little park. Parking was 10 bucks which is crazy. Those are straight up Disneyland prices. Now half the rides are broken down or closed, they ran out of ICEE drinks, the soda fountains... More

This place has gone into bad repair. The arcade games need to be replaced with ones that work and the carpet inside need to be removed. The rides are okay for about an hour of fun with the kids if you don't mind waiting in line for a 30 second ride.

We had not visited Castle Park for a while and it was sad to see it in such a sad state of disrepair. We played miniature golf and it was clear they are just letting it run down with little to no maintenance. We paid $30 for 3 people to play. I would have asked for our money back but... More

I live not very far away and I am not sure why we never came here. We brought the kids to have some fun and I pictured a small place with boring kiddie rides with expensive ticket prices. We were very wrong. For the prices which are super cheap, I reccommend getting both the rides and mini golf. We got... More

I recently went, besides the rides being a little run down I have to give credit to the people who work in Food and Beverage. Yes the lines are long but the food is great. Also got a Funnel Cake from their Duke's Frying Factory, I highly recommended it if you want something sweet, when I went to their window... More

Castle park used to be great, it did have the best miniature golf course. Now it is a little run down but still way better than Scandia. Last time at the castle the air was not working and the arcade was super hot! A little too pricey for what you get but great for a date night or something different... More

Try what we did. Buy food and drinks from the outside. Bring ice chest to keep sodas and juice cold. We always go back and forth to the car if we were hungry. Parking lot is not that far. If you left the parking lot to get food, you have to pay again to park. That's why it is better... More

Everything from food to attraction rides are over priced. However they do have the best mini gold course locally :)
