Indoor ACTION Maine’s not just a great place for outdoor adventure—if the weather’s got you figuratively climbing the wall, you may want to try that out for real.
People of all ages and abilities are challenging themselves through climb- ing in the non-intimidating, inspiring environment at Evo Rock & Fitness. With 16,000 square feet of modern, indoor climbing surfaces, there is some- thing for everyone at all levels of ability. Featured walls include speed climbing and bouldering walls. You can also exercise without climbing at Evo, which boasts a gymwith cross training equip- ment, cardio machines, free weights, and a multipurpose room for yoga, Pilates, and other exercise classes. Designed for speed and competition, Maine Indoor Karting is the fastest, most thrilling formula karting near Portland. With helmets secured and karts adjusted, each racer sits in an- ticipation for the green flag signaling that the race is on. The Maine Indoor Karting track fills with the roars and squeals of their European-designed for- mula karts and the cheers of supporters. After watching a safety video, racers are ready for the 1,200 foot state-of-the-art track, which offers a challenge to all skill levels. Kids 8-15 years old must take a safety course before racing. Ladies night runs Friday 8-11 pm. For family members too young or less inclined
to race, there’s an arcade, cafe, and an indoor mini-golf course to keep you entertained. Bowling is a tried and true way to keep active indoors, and there are plenty of lanes to choose from in Greater Port- land. Just over the bridge in South Portland, Easy Day has a full-service family restaurant, bar, and lounge with live entertainment, DJs, and special events. Right downtown, Bayside Bowl is an intimate alley with a full kitchen serving lunch and dinner, and an entertainment stage directly connected to the bowling area.

Spare Time Entertainment offers traditional 10-pin bowling as well as laser tag and a new Game Zone featuring the latest technical arcade games. Get your heart pounding with music, fog, LED lighting, special effects, and laser guns as you battle it out in their multi-level arena.
