For the month of February, Jaime is celebrating Jaime's Local Legacies: businesses with decades here in the Valley. 

Castles ~n~ Coasters is a beloved amusement park with 40 years in the Valley.

The park was built in 1977, and originally opened under the name Golf ~n~ Stuff.

The Brimhall family started the family entertainment center and still owns and operates Castles ~n~ Coasters today,  as well as several smaller Golf ~n~ Stuff locations in Tucson (AZ), Ventura (CA), and Norwalk (CA).

Trailing the 1973 opening of the Norwalk location, Golf ~n~ Stuff Phoenix featured a massive indoor video arcade, four outdoor 18-hole miniature golf courses, go-karts and batting cages.

In 1992, Golf ~n~ Stuff Phoenix became Castles ~n~ Coasters, expanding the park to approximately10-acres and adding several rides including Arizona’s ONLY double loop roller coaster - Desert Storm, and a log flume ride - Splashdown.

Castles ~n~ Coasters and Golf ~n~ Stuff have offered a fun-filled environment for families young or old for more than 40 years!
