Went here a couple of times for kids birthday parties. Private rooms for cake and presents. They have some leather couches and furniture to sit and 'watch' your kid(s). They... read more

Went here a couple of times for kids birthday parties. Private rooms for cake and presents. They have some leather couches and furniture to sit and 'watch' your kid(s). They aren't doing anything to set them apart from the competition. It's what you would expect; Pizza is average, games are pricey and kids running around everywhere..lol.

Took our kids and relatives to enjoy a hot day inside at the indoor park/inflatables at Castaway Play. Was well kept up, clean, friendly staff, and having free entry for our kids under 2 was a real bonus. We made a dinner and ordered the pizza which was good and allowed us to spend more time. Large space and next... More

Perfect place to come on a rainy or cold snowy day. You can just let the kids run wild while you relax. My one year old is a master at climbing and crawling around.

They have redesigned their layout from last year. More tables located near the play area's so you can sit at your table and watch what the kids are doing. Unfortunately it has changed from a "closed" facility to an "open" facility which means little kids could possibly leave the facility with a parent. Still remains clean and a great place... More

Great place. The kids love it. Food is nothing special but worth the cost. Each time we have gone I have seen staff attentive to watching the children play safely. The staff also cleans the equipment. I was surprised to see them in the play structure wiping every inch of the play structure. Take the kids if you have never... More

First, they give a lot to the community. Our school has fundraisers there and we made $300 in one night! The pizza of really good and I have seen people order it for takeout. Both of my girls (5 & 10) have a great time when we go!

Fairly standard kids soft play area with additional arcade games. Cafe was as expected but of note the staff were very helpful. Free WiFi, noisy , and standard tables.

When I was younger, I use to go to Castaway all the time, my friends, family, and me would always have a blast. I'm older now and my sister felt we would go relive childhood, by the way, I'm almost 16, they don't have age limits and that makes it cool. So my sister and my best friend all went... More

This is a bigger version of play areas found at McDonalds. There are limited food and drink items for sale at premium prices. My grandchildren got bored after about an hour. Loud, with limited seating, this should be a last resort to keep the kids busy on rainy days.

Nice Place!! While we were here, it was pretty empty. Kids had a ball on equipment. Could have more fun things to do on the structure. And be careful, those slides shoot ya down pretty quick lol
