Located in the heart of Orange County, NY, this indoor/outdoor amusement park boasts two stories plus an outdoor area of family fun. This place is so huge, plan to make a full day out of it! From Laser Tag to bowling, skating and even a gigantic ball pit, you can literally have a ball at The Castle Fun Center! Already tackled The Castle this summer? We have rounded up our favorite local indoor play spots for you, here.


Ballocity, one of our favorite features here is a 2 story play structure filled with thousands of balls to blast friends and targets with air cannons. Plus, you can dump them, stand under the fountain, balance them on the air table and more. Ballocity is great for kids of all ages and parents too!

Another favorite part of this indoor amusement park is laser maze. Players here can test their skills as they try to complete an obstacle maze without touching any of the laser beams. Kids of all ages expertly navigate through the web of lasers, going over and under them as quickly as possible to reach the end of the maze where they press a button that stops the challenge and determines your time and score.


Our third favorite attraction at The Caste Fun Center is mini golf. Here everything is bigger, better and unexpected. This unique, outdoor, 18 hole course offers 2 different adventures: Dragon Slayer and Knight's Revenge. This is the only place that you can work your way to the top of the castle that overlooks the entire facility. Mini golf pricing is $6.75 kids under 12 and $7.75 for ages 12+.

Those are our three favorite attractions but the fun certainly doesn't stop here! The Castle recently introduced 4 new thrilling rides to their already exciting assortment including a swing ride, Dragon Frenzy 360, Spin Zone Bumper Cars and Free Fall. You can also race around the track at the Indy Go Kart Track, challenge your friends and family to a game of laser tag, lace up your skates and go for a roll around the skating rink, play games at the arcade, practice your climbing skills at the rock wall or your batting skills at the batting cages. There is always something new and exciting happening at The Castle Fun Center!
