I will be traveling upstate and looking for something to do on the way up. I am coming from New Jersey. Would drive a little out of the way. Looking for something exciting like amusement park.

Legoland is in Goshen NY about an hour from the Catskills.

There is The Castle in Chester NY but it's more of a mini golf/go karting situation

The Castle. I think it's in Goshen or near there. Literally on the way on NY17. Has some rides, bumper cars, climbing wall, arcades, I think mini golf? a soft play, maybe laser tag, I don't know what else but just generally a lot of amusements.

Alternatively there are supposed to be lot of things to do in the Palisades mall but those would all be separate attractions. But they have different things than the Castle, like a ropes course and I don't remember, maybe bowling? VR?

Where in NJ are you coming from? You can stop at American Dream Mall.
The only amusement park option on the way is either American Dream or Legoland.

Palisades Mall actually has a ton of attractions. They have an indoor ropes course, VR, ice skating rink, ferris wheel, carousel, full on arcade and bowling, build-a-bear, and probably lots more that I am not currently remembering.

Heading to the Catskills. Any other outdoor recommendations for 12-14 year olds?

There's a small zoo called Bailiwick. We enjoyed, but it's probably better for younger ages. Not aware of anything closer to the Jewish Catskills.
