One of the best things to do in Lake George is obvious: to spend time on the lake. While swimming, boating, and watersports are always great choices, sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate. When you have kids to entertain during your stay at Depe Dene Family Lakeside Resort, and the sun isn’t out to play, one of the best things to do in Lake George when it rains is to visit arcades. These are our top three picks for nearby arcades to visit while you’re staying in Lake George resorts like ours.
Fun World Arcade Lake George
Lake George’s oldest arcade offers 100 different games to choose from, from racing to simulation to shooting. Once you’ve won all the games, run around with your kids in the laser maze and release their pent-up energy before returning to your room. Fun World Arcade Lake George is located downtown, just a 10-minute drive down 9N.
Lake George Lanes and Games
Although not quite as large as Fun World Arcade, Lake George Lanes and Games is still a great contender. Galactic bowling makes a weekend night glow from 9:30 to midnight. A beer from the bar and grill might make your night sparkle, too. The golf simulator sets this arcade apart from others, so you can practice your swing without spending the money at a golf course.
The Fun Spot
While The Fun Spot doesn’t have actual arcade games, it’s definitely a game-changer on a rainy day. Only a 15-minute drive from your rental at Depe Dene Resort, they offer more activities to choose from than other local attractions. The indoor playground is 1500 square feet. The mini-golf course has five waterfalls and two caves for maximum fun (and obstacles) as you make your way through the 18-hole course.
The go-kart track is open April through October. It switches directions daily so you can return to try a “new” track whenever you return. Don’t forget your tennis shoes for the Ninja Challenge course, where participants take on nine elements and get timed to see who’s the fastest ninja of the day. Although this may be the most expensive option, the combo and day packages make it more affordable. The variety might make it one of the most fun things to do in Lake George when it rains.
Lake George Resorts
If you don’t want to leave the resort, next to the office here at Depe Dene is a small arcade as well. We’ve got plenty of other fun things to do on-site too, such as basketball, shuffleboard, and badminton. Participate in seasonal events like luaus and s’mores nights, too. Whether you’re playing on-site or off, return to your rental to relax and prep for another day of fun, discovering your favorite things to do in Lake George.
