I am a huge theme and amusement park fan, so I feel that I need to preface my review with that statement. You would think that Arizona would contain more amusement or theme parks, but the sad truth is there really are not any. Castles N Coasters is as close as it comes, because it contains the only (that I know of) true roller coaster in the valley. It is located in a somewhat questionable part of town, and attracts some questionable crowds especially on the weekends and after dark. Surprisingly the park stays relatively clean, pretty well kept-up, and has decent prices for the most part. The main reason we go back is for the mini-golf, where they have 4 courses to choose from, and the courses are usually in good shape - which seems to be harder to find these days with how hard the public is on amusement parks. It's fun, but definitely nothing amazing, but it is the only show in town.

Lots of fun for the kids, due to the area I would not let my kids be there without an adult or in the evenings We have had lots of laughs and screams there and it never ceases to fill us up with fun!

This place is great for the kids, they usually have some sort of coupon offer for admission and do offer a fun change of pace for a birthday party or company get together.

We celebrated our daughter's 11th birthday here and had a good time. There was enough to do for everyone (including the adults and her 6 year old brother). However, I would recommend leaving before sunset as the place becomes overrun with teenagers at that time. Otherwise, a nice place!

Castles N Coasters is a small, very limited and very expensive attraction. Not much in the way of rides or games. It is, however, within walking distance of the Mall and the teens love it.
