rainy day activities

we will be in lake George this week Monday through Wednesday. It looks like it will rain. Unfortunately we can't change when we will be there. We are a group of 16 with nine children- ages 8-16. I would appreciate any ideas of things we might do on a rainy day.

Thanks

The tour boats will operate in the rain and they have an indoor section where you can stay dry. There are movies at exit 19 (not what you probably want to do on vacation but it is an option) Saratoga Race track will also run in the rain (not Tuesday though) and it too has covered areas. There are museums in the area too - Art, History, Horse, Dance, Automobile......and many more. There is indoor roller skating and laser tag in Queensbury - Fun Spot and Adventure Racing both on Rt 9 just south of Great Escape http://www.thefunspot.net/ http://www.gocartslakegeorge.com/

Excellent suggestions from ADK!

Don't worry the forecast may be wrong.

It hasn't rained so far today with a 70% chance of rain, so you never know!

I would add the Natural Stone Bridge and Caves, Aimee's Dinner and a Movie, and there is a new scenic train ride between North Creek and Saratoga. Also, there is a small indoor mini golf course at Aviation Mall, and the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake is worth the trip. I hope the forecast is wrong, but there is plenty to do!

The Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake is always a favorite of mine. My kids have always liked it too!

I thought of another option: day passes at the Great Escape Lodge. With that many kids, it might be cheaper to book a birthday party if you can.
