    My youngest (3 years old) really enjoyed the bouncy house and play structure while my oldest (9 years old) had a great time playing laser tag. I found the atmosphere to be very family-friendly, and the staff was very accommodating. Would definitely come back either just for a day of fun or to schedule a birthday party. My boys loved it!

    What the heck happened to this place. New ownership? We loved coming here but that place is extremely dirty, staff overworked/under paid. The owner needs to get more then one register going with the proper amount of staff to keep people happy. Pizza took over an hour and a half. Ice cream, 20 minutes in line. Again its not the employees, they don't have enough help.

    I have been to castaway many many times and I have to say that every time I go the quality gets worse and worse and the price keeps going up. I'm very angry at the way I was treated by more than one staff. I realize they're busy and probably DO get swindled by people often but they should NOT assume that all people who say a machine has taken their money is lieing. This is how my experience went at castaway with my 6 y/o child. I arrive there and pay the money we go in and I wanted to use the family bathroom, it was locked and no one was in it....Read More

    over all quality was pretty good, we didnt eat food there so I cant speak for that. My main complaint is they need more games that give tickets and also to fix some that are already there.. prizes seemed decent compared to other places but need more games and again to fix the others. 13 month really enjoyed him self at the toddler area which seemed clean enough but the soft blocks need to be replaced they were pretty tore up.. more could be done to spruce up and someone should be cleaning through the day more. we didnt see much cleaning going on...Read More

I have been to castaway many many times and I have to say that every time I go the quality gets worse and worse and the price keeps going up. I'm very angry at the way I was treated by more than one staff. I realize they're busy and probably DO get swindled by people often but they should NOT assume that all people who say a machine has taken their money is lieing. This is how my experience went at castaway with my 6 y/o child. I arrive there and pay the money we go in and I wanted to use the family bathroom, it was locked and no one was in it. So we went to the other bathroom. My son wanted 50 cents for one of the vending machines by the jump areas. It ended up eating his money and he was very disappointed so I told him to go to the front desk and ask for his money back. They DID end up giving his money back but to only be eaten by a different machine. I went upto the counter and told them about the bathroom and the broken machines. I even gave them specifics at which one were out of order so they could correct the problem so another child would not be heart broken when their own earned money is ripped off. I was there for OVER 3 hrs and no one put out of order signs or unlocked the bathroom. My child and I then stumbled across the arcade that they recently have opened. Lets just say I wasted atleast 5 dollars in broken machines that did NOT work and had no signs. We then earned some tickets and when we put about the 60th ticket in the machine it jammed. There was another machine next to it with another woman who said her machine was jammed also. The maintenance man came over and was struggling for a very long time to fix them. We only had about 100 tickets total and I took them to the ticket counter and the child employee informed me no way he could count any tickets it had to be through a machine.(I don't think he could count that I) Needless to say I told him someone was working on ALL the broken ticket machines. I walked back over and was talking to the maintenance guy about how I have been ripped off by the machines and ticket machines and how unhappy I was. His next comment was how people ALWAYS come up to him and try to say they got ripped off and he can tell when they are lieing... I really didnt know what to say to that because I already requested the stupid 50 cents and I didnt want to go back up the front counter and tell them EVERY single time I got ripped off by their machines. I tried warning other parents before they put their money in the broken machines. I would have GLADLY walked around and put out of order signs on the machines that I knew were broken. I hate to see kids disapointed when they did nothing wrong. This place is just trying to make a quick buck BE WARNED

I am not there to see how often the place gets cleaned, I assume they do a decent job, its cleaner than other places we have been
