Castle Park Rides & Attractions

Castle Park
Although we wouldn't call Castle Park a full day theme park, there's still plenty to see and enjoy for an afternoon. From a handful of coasters to classic carnival rides and shows, this theme park was made for the whole family to get in on the action. The Mini-Golf section of the park and the arcade are open earlier than the rest of the park, so you can get those out of the way before all the rides open up to enjoy. There's even a magic show held inside the Al's Big Top BBQ tent, with a magician that pokes fun at certain other theme parks in the area. As long as you set your expectations with this park, there's plenty of opportunity for a fun time.

Top 3 Things to do in Castle Park

No 1 Icon
Ride Merlin's Revenge
Merlin's Revenge is the best ride in the park when it comes to experience, theming, and thrills. It's not a long coaster, so they usually send you through twice. It's a suitable family coaster with no deep drops or loops.
No 2 Icon
Play a round or two of Mini-Golf
The Mini-Golf area of Castle Park opens up before the rest of the theme park does, which means you can get in a round or two before you head on the rides. It is a separate cost, unless you purchase a ticket which includes it. The area is well-themed, however, and it's a great way to kill one or two hours in friendly competition.
No 3 Icon
Ride Screamin' Demon
Screamin' Demon is  the roughest ride in the park, although still not quite a thrill ride. It spins you round as it takes you through the track. It's a pretty fun ride, but the capacity is abysmal, at just 2-3 people per vehicle and sometimes only 1 vehicle moving down the full track at a time.
