I grew up in Riverside and have fond memories of Castle Park. It became THE destination of choice when good report cards came in.

20 years later, CP still has the same vibe. It looks 'vintage' (some call it old) and a lot of my favorite old rides are there.

I was able to take my 7 year old son on the Tilt a Whirl this last weekend. He's afraid of everything, so I was hesitant. HE LOVED IT and wanted to go again and again.

CP now uses wristbands instead of making you buy ride tickets, so what used to be a $150+ family outing only set me back about $60. 4-6 hours at Castle Park will get you on over a dozen rides, let you play a round of mini-golf, and tour the entire area. The lines are decent, the rides are quaint, and it's good family fun.

If you're looking for huge rollercoasters, enjoy the long drive to Six Flags. If you have money to burn and love paying for 'cute,' go have fun at Disneyland. If you like fun rides, mini golf, midway games and a decent arcade, go to Castle Park.

Decided to go to this park since we see it from the Fwy all the time. Could better stick to Boomers in Fountain Valley. The park seems to focus on rides and attractions, and its arcade, instead of miniature golf and as a result the price is very high. For 2 adults and a 3 year old to play miniature golf cost over $40.00. The first shock was the fee for parking. Never had to pay to park for miniature golf before. Everything else followed suit, Arcade games were $$$ ride attractions were $$$. On a bang for your buck basis, Disneyland is better, even at their huge rates. True that this has been there a while and shows signs of wear and tear, but they keep it up pretty good. My advice, get a job there and see if you can sneak your family in.

Nothing to dislike. Castle Park has great prices and a lot of different rides for ages of all. I have been coming here since I was a little girl and I never get tired of it. I am 21 years old and I know that if I ever become a Mother, I will be bringing my children here as well.

This is a great little amusement park for some local fun. A good variety of rides for all ages. Lines are usually pretty short. There is a big arcade and miniature golf too.
