My Kid's Review

It had been years since I played a round of mini golf. I had been to Metro Mall a few times but payed not attention to the attraction sharing a parking lot. Word of mouth was not very good and the place was described as "ghetto Six Flags" a few times. It came up, however, in a discussion about mini golf and was told they had a nice course. I rounded up two friends and we gave it a whirl. We played course one and had a great time. Many of the holes were similar but it was still fun and at times frustrating (which always adds to the experience). Afterward I scoped out the arcade. If you love pinball you need to check this place out. Castles-n-Coasters has the biggest selection I have seen in one place. ...
My kids love this place. It gets them hours of entertainment - rides, arcade, golf. It's a little like going to the fair or a carnival, but some of it's indoors - important in the summer. On our most recent visit, my 11yr old and I were wanting to play some video games. Originally we planned to go to GameWorks, but thats about 35 miles from us. Castles n Coasters is maybe 10 miles and the best arcade I know of west of I-17. We started out with a round of golf since we were there. I think $8 per golfer is a bit steep, but that's what I get for not coupon hunting beforehand. We were bad and didn't keep score, didn't keep to one course and we had a blast on a relatively cool July evening. We got there af...
This is pretty much all you got here in AZ, I guess. And for that kinda big but still small fun, it does its job. I can honestly say that in the midst of the fun with the kids that I somewhat forgot I was in a small place in Phoenix. It has a big amusement park feel because of the layout and of course the sounds of rides everywhere. The atmosphere actually hits the mark. Adults CAN have fun here if they don't take things too seriously or expect too much. This isn't Cedar Point. This is a big permanent carnival, minus the house-o-fun. And you're not going to get high-end rides here. So as long as you go in knowing that this is going to be a "eh, good enough" type ordeal, you'll be good. The big coaster...
i first checked out the website before going here, and the website gave me the impression this place was something waayy different from what it actually is. Total let down, i was expecting to ride some good rides, when actually this place is for kids.. i mean little kids. Only t...
Nothing else like it in AZ. All of the rides are good. Kids can spend the whole day here. Love that on school vacations it is dead and there is no wait for any of the rides. Got lucky last time and went on a day that it was sprinkling. We had purchased the all day ride and golf wristband. The...
We celebrated my girl's momentous occasion here last Saturday. Her 7th birthday shit I'm getting old!!! I am here to forewarn you about having parties here so listen up or in this case keep reading! Arrive with cake...check! Got shown to where the secret bat cave entrance was...a mile long walk on sidewalk w kids a cake and Metro Parkway traffic all within arms reach. Try not to have a an acute myocardial infarction. When you finally make it to the secret birthday entrance you will find that YES they can store your cake for you till party time. (Phew good thing!) Guest arrival...check! They also have to find the secret entrance and No they can NOT hold gifts for you till party time as "they aren't responsib...
EEEW NO! THIS PLACE IS SUPER, MEGA TACKY! WAY GHETTO! When My son was younger (6) he asked me to take him there, I did! And OMG we both hated it! And we tried it a second time when my girl...
The best place to skip work and goofy golf in the spring and summer. Sure, it's a little musty, old, run-down... but it's a slice of my childhood and at least it's still here. I can't gather the courage to ride the roller coaster anymore and bumper cars just aren't as appealing as they once were but the two story arcade still makes me squeal a little. ...
