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.
