Sandcastle is Pittsburgh's favorite destination for refreshing water fun! Open since 1989, this park spans 60-acres and offers over a dozen different water slides with varying speeds and angles of descent for thrill seekers of all levels. If you prefer to stay dry, take a leisurely stroll on the Boardwalk where you can enjoy food and games. From company outings to birthday celebrations, Sandcastle creates occasions everyone will remember with private VIP cabanas to tents for larger gatherings and plentiful food options with our professional service staff. With attractions like Thunder Run, Lazy River, and Wet Willie's Water Works for children, Sandcastle has something for everyone!

Sandcastle has been going down hill for years. The rides are still fun for all ages and the wave pool remains a crowd pleaser, after that there is nothing else positive to say. On our last visit there were multiple slides closed. There are weeds...More

Fun especially when it is a hot day. Cabana's are worth the purchase so that you have a place to put your stuff down and have a meeting place if you group splits up.
