The Castle Fun Center Expands Again and Opens the 2016 Summer Season with Rides!
Adding 3 Rides, Dippin Dots, and a full Restaurant Renovation
By: The Castle Fun Center
The Swing Ride and Dragon Frenzy 360 opened in May, while the Spin Zone Bumper Cars are scheduled for arrival and opening by the end of July.
"I'm excited by the additions of rides this year," said The Castle's owner Brian Leentjes. "It adds a new element to the park for sure!"
The Swing Ride is a 32 seat ride that swings you around in a circle and tilts as it spins, allowing you to soar high above our mini golf area.
Now Dragon Frenzy 360 is an entirely different creature, this one is a pure thrill ride. It's a pendulum ride that sends riders spinning a full 360 degrees over the top, 40 feet in the air!
The Spin Zone Bumper Cars will be arriving next month and are not the classic bumper cars you remember; these feature an inner tube design with two targets on each car that activate a "Spin Zone" sending your opponents' car into an uncontrollable 3-second spin!
"We feel it's important to keep things fresh and new here and are always thinking of new additions", said Leentjes. Over the winter, they also renovated Jesters Café inside The Castle, which now offers a quick bite to eat in the Jesters Café along with full table service in Jesters Restaurant & Pub. The pub offers a full bar with local craft beers on tap. They have also added new Dippin' Dots treats in their concession areas!
The Castle has become the premier entertainment center in the Hudson Valley with guests travelling from the New York Tri-State area along with New Jersey, Hudson Valley and Pennsylvania.
The Castle Fun Center is located at 109 Brookside Ave., Chester, NY. For more information on The Castle, please visit www.thecastlefuncenter.com
