- One free guest ride wristband for September–May

Whether you're whirling on the Screamin' Demon, a spinning coaster riddled with dips and banks, or teaching the young ones how to drive offensively on the bumper cars, Castle Park will lead to fond memories and possibly an oversized stuffed snake. In all, the park houses more than two-dozen rides, nearly 200 arcade games, ample amounts of snackery, and exactly 18 holes of miniature golf. With the included bonus passes, test drive the snacks and games without visiting the park's lowest-rated ride, the ATM, which is infamously jerky.
Some of Castle Park's rides have specific height requirements, which means children under 36 inches are always admitted free. If you're unsure of whether this applies to you, your family, or your porcelain lawn gnome, check out the ride requirements online.
- Lots of fun for your money. It's not fancy, but my boys, ages 4,8,& 12 love it because you can get on 10 rides in a hour! No lines. – Guest, Judy's Book
- The rides are pleasant. Not too big to be overwhelming to little ones, but not too small to discourage older kids. Overall, a nice mix of activities. – Brenda L., Insider Pages
A flying saucer spins furiously inside Castle Park. The ride—which straps kids and adults inside a UFO—rotates at 65 mph. Nearby, the Dragons Tower launches riders into the sky. While it's easy to imagine yourself as some futuristic space traveler, there's something timeless about many of the amusement park's other rides. Classic favorites include a tilt-a-whirl, scrambler, and bumper cars. An antique car ride takes guests on journey past miniature buildings, while the merry-go-round spins endlessly.
