We arrived in Bangor in the late evening, and were looking for something to do. We had seen The Sports Arena on TripAdvisor and thought it might be a good way to spend our evening, after a full day of driving.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a well-lit (this was approximately 10pm), very well-maintained mini golf course.

Inside the building, we found the arcade and bowling alley. Rather than using old-school tokens and tickets, they have a swipe card that you can put money on to play the wide range of arcade games, and it keeps track of your earned points to buy prizes. A very convenient way to play! Would be great for parents that want to set a budget for how much to spend.

The bowling alley had their evening glow bowling, but it seemed a bit dark, even for glow bowling. The alleys were well taken care of and in good repair. They also had options to play a single game, or play for a full evening which was a nice option.

For adults looking for an enjoyable, but affordable evening out, The Sports Arena has two bars -- one in the bowling alley, and another was a sports bar, in the arcade area. The building was quite busy, however, we didn't find it too crowded and difficult to get around.

After spending a couple hours there, we grabbed a couple of slices of pizza to go from the attached pizza parlor. We would definitely visit again, and would recommend it for couples, friends or families alike!

Went to bowl, eh.....alright place...pizza was ok, beer..what you would expect at a bowling alley, but it was cold, so that's a plus. Bowled 3 strings, ok price..was a little busy, lots of "questionable" young adults just hanging out.

We have been coming to Bangor for years and this was first time we found The Sports Arena.
Played Mini golf and had a blast. Came back in evening to bowl and again, had a blast. A local family gave us some coupons that cut the cost down a bit which was great for the bowling. Coupons came on one of the pizza boxes.
We will visit this place again on our next visit.

This place is great to let the family to burn off energy on a rainy or cold day. They have bowling, pool and many games which give credits that can be traded in for little prizes. They have a pizza place attached and many tv's playing sports all day long ~ evenings are more adult time.
