what to do when raining and camping? Indoors for teens?

Hello, we are camping in OOB and it has been raining quite a bit. What is there to do here or around the area for teenagers 13-16? We can drive it there is something elsewhere. Thanks.

A few ideas for you, not sure about your budget...

Saco Cinemagic Theaters - movies, has a new IMAX theater as well.

Maine Indoor Karting in Scarborough - indoor go-carting and mini-golf (not cheap though)

Two close by bowling alleys - Vacationland bowling, Route 1 in Saco and another on Route 1 in Scarborough (maybe called Big 10?)

Northern York County YMCA on Route 111 in Biddeford

The Maine Mall is in South Portland, only 20-30 minutes away.

Southworth Planetarium at University of Souther Maine in Portland has both astronomy and laser-music shows. Also in Portland is a roller skating rink, Happy Wheels, easy to get to from the turnpike. And Maine Rock Gym for Indoor Rock Climbing.

Sorry the weather isn't cooperating. I think everyone in the area has had enough of this rain!

mainesunseeker - that's a great list! (And a great name for this weather...)

Just to add: If you're thinking of going to the IMAX, you may want to book your tickets ahead of time. I went to a movie at Cinemagic Saturday night, and the IMAX was sold out.

I'm sure Basbalfan has gone home, but for those left behind or looking for more- there's always the Portland Museum of Art, Childrens' Museum (ok, not for teens, but for the little guys). Concerts at the Pavilion at OOB, Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, Maine State Museum in Augusta...

Last year we were in OOB for a week...and it rained 6 days. Ugh.

The arcade is always an option...but crowded.

We ended up going to Cabela's www.Cabelas.com and had a blast just walking around and looking. It's like no place we had ever been!

Don't forget the Kittery outlets (and Yummies candy store) and there is also LLBean in Freeport
