The amusement park is a favourite for families with its Go Kart racing, mini golf courses, batting cages, arcade games, and more.
It’s also a nostalgic place for many who remember it way back when it was called Wonderland.
It all started in 1979 when a Kelowna man named Hank Wiebe literally started building castles on the lawn in his backyard.
As a young father with a background in construction, Wiebe was determined to become his own boss. He and his wife Doreen eventually decided to build their own amusement park.

Wonderland had provincial rights to the name but the other park in Ontario had secured national rights to it. They were given only 24-hours to change its name, and then Castle Fun Park was created.
It was originally going to be called Castle Park but the family’s 7-year-old granddaughter said it didn’t describe how “fun” it is.
To this day, the park has been run by the same family for over 25 years.
They have expanded on their attractions which now include a driving range, target hockey, remote control boats, bowling, and bumper cars—just to name a few.
