Here’s a list of the top 10 must-ride attractions at Castle Park!

10. Dragon Flyer


Dragon Flyer

Dragon Flyer is a unique aerial ride with carts spiralling around a pole. What makes this attraction special is that each cart features a sail-like structure that allows riders to move around and reach higher altitudes!

9. Merlin’s Revenge

Merlin's Revenge

Merlin’s Revenge is a thrilling roller coaster for those who are looking for some more intensity. The ride will take you along a fast trajectory by tilting the passengers from side to side.

8. Sea Dragon

Sea Dragon

The Sea Dragon is a pirate ship that will swing riders back and forth, making them feel as if they were being lifted by rising sea tides. Ideal for those who like that zero-gravity feeling in their bellies!

7. Saw Mill Plunge

Saw Mill Plunge

Ever wondered what it feels like to ride a log down a waterfall as in cartoons? Get on the all-new Saw Mill Plunge for a splashing good time! The perfect mix between a roller coaster and a water slide.

6. Flying Saucer


Flying Saucer

Travelling at hyperspeed through outer space is an experience not many have, but Castle Park’s Flying Saucer is a very good imitation. Stand against the round walls of the Flying Saucer and let centrifugal force push you outwards.

5. Scrambler


The Scrambler is a double-rotation spinner that will make it difficult to walk in a line afterward! A central spinning post is connected to several arms, from which clusters of double seats are hanging, and also spinning!

4. Castle Park Railroad

Castle Park Railroad

At the Castle Park Railroad, a tiny “coal-powered” train will take kids around the park for a relaxing tour among the attractions. One of the most inclusive attractions in the park, as there are no height restrictions for children riding it with someone over 36''.

3. Screamin’ Demon

Screamin Demon

Screamin’ Demon is not what it seems! Looking at it from the ground, it seems like a simple rollercoaster with carts slowly sliding down a zigzagging path. But those who dare ride it will start spinning crazily while moving across its trajectory!

2. Dragon’s Tower

Dragon's Tower

Zero gravity is the key to Dragon’s Tower. Take a seat and soar through the sky! Feel the butterflies in your belly as the seats in the tower take you to the top and let you fall repeatedly.

 1. Fire Ball

Fire Ball

Fire Ball is the most thrilling attraction in Castle Park! A unique ride that will take you into an infinite loop. If you got onto Sea Dragon and were left eager for more, Fire Ball is the answer. A circular, looping roller coaster that will balance you back and forth until flipping you upside down along a 360° turn.

So, What Is the Scariest Ride at Castle Park?

The scariest ride at Castle Park is Fire Ball! Increasing your thrill, you never know exactly when the ride’s balance will go from back-and forth to a full loop turning you upside-down! Do you dare give it a try?
