When I was invited to check out Castle Park in Riverside a couple of months back, so many childhood memories came back to me. You see…Castle Park in Riverside was one of the first places my dad used to take me to go miniature golfing. Back in the day (the 80’s…yes my friends I am feeling pretty old) there were no miniature golf places to go in Orange County, California and the neighboring county was Riverside, so Castle Park was the place to go!! Even later on down the line when other mini golf places started to open in the OC, Castle Park was still our favorite because it was huge! There are four different Miniature golf courses and they are all still there today.
The four of us piled into my car on a Sunday afternoon and headed out to Riverside. It was conveniently located…only a 43 minute drive from South Orange County…We were all pretty impressed, considering we thought it would be further away. Upon arriving at Castle Park, we did have to pay a $6 parking fee…this fee was not there when my dad and I used to go, but the parking lot used to also be where they built a bunch of rides as well, so the parking fee makes sense to pay for all of the new goodies inside.:)
Castle Park in Riverside was founded in 1976 (the year I was born my friends 🙂 ) and has expanded since it opened with predominantly miniature golf (4 awesome courses) and an arcade. There are now 27 rides offered at this Amusement Park, as well as carnival games, a water playground, and a magic show! They have definitely expanded since I used to frequent the park between the years of 1985-1988 with my family.
The awesome thing about Castle Park is that there are a variety of different ticket options upon arrival. You can buy an annual pass for only $49.99 with no blackout dates to take advantage of unlimited rides, unlimited miniature golf, Buccaneer cove (open seasonally), and in park savings to go on any day at any time! There are also rides only pass, a miniature golf pass, and a 90 day pass available as well for different prices.
In addition to annual passes, there are 4 different ticket packages that vary from $9.99 to $29.99. See website for details about each of these tickets. 🙂 The one ticket option I would like to share with you is normally priced at $19.99, but for being one of my readers I can give you a code for you to go for only $12.99!! For $19.99 you get Unlimited rides, Unlimited Miniature Golf on all 4 courses, and Unlimited Buccaneer Cove. If you use my code “blog2014” you can get this $19.99 pass for only $12.99!
Castle Park also gives discounts to parties of 15 or more, you can host a birthday party there and you can rent cabanas to protect yourself from the sun! Castle Park truly has a little of something for everyone. Something I liked about Castle Park was that it felt like the county fair is going on 365 days a year with the fried foods, Icees galore, carnival games, and rides. There were rides for kids, as well as adults. My personal favorite at Castle Park is still the miniature golf, just because it brings back so many memories and I am quite competitive in nature. 🙂
One more thing I must mention is the awesome “Kids Rewards” program they have! They have something called the Homework Hero where your child can become a Homework King or Queen and earn 10 Tokens & a Star Attendance program in which your child has perfect Attendance and can earn 10 tokens!
All you need to do is:

I am currently in Alaska on vacation, but that code should work. Call Castle park & ask them for that code specifically and hopefully they can do it for you on phone. It is good for all of summer. I hope that helps. If not I can contact them for you the week after next when I am in town. Let me know:)
