Castle Fun Park
Castle Fun Park is a family-oriented amusement park on North Parallel Road adjacent to the south of the condominium complex Mountain View Village. This fun attraction in Abbotsford is owned by the Wiebe family which was also instrumental in the establishment earlier of Scandia Golf & Games in Kelowna.
The Wiebe family established Castle Fun Park in 1989 after moving to Abbotsford. The family’s head, Hank Wiebe, was a handyman fascinated with building castles, hence the park’s theme.
Admission to Castle Fun Park is free as well as its vehicle parking. Visitors of the park spend on loadable playcards to access the recreational facilities that they fancy. The playcards can also be used to pay for the food and drinks available at the park’s concession. Park visitors aren’t allowed to bring in snacks and beverages into this amusement center.
Castle Fun Park offers more than 200 games in its Modern Arcade. The players’ choices include classics like Pac Man and Frogger. The arcade also features first-person shooters, virtual reality fights, racing, and pinball. Exciting prizes can be won in these arcade games.
The amazing virtual experience of Typhoon comes as another crowd-drawer for the park. Here, you can pick from six extreme rides including on a roller-coaster or a high-speed racecar or hovercraft. You’ll be on a seat simulating acceleration of 2Gs plus special wind effects blared in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.
Its 400-meter circuit Go-Kart Raceway is another popular facility of Castle Fun Park. This circuit allows young passengers from 3 years old provided they’re accompanied by a go-kart driver over 16. Unaccompanied riders have to be at least 10 years old.
Paired competition can be enjoyed Laser Maze Challenge and Beam Buster at this amusement park. Similar excitement awaits players at the four lanes of the park’s 10-pin arcade style bowling.
For younger toddlers, Castle Fun Park has the Wonder Farm Kid Zone. Mini rides and games for small kids are this zone’s theme.
Other attractions of this park include bumper cars, a driving range, and axe master. It is also groomed for batting cages and a nine-hole Secret Garden mini-golf course.
