My family and I recently visited for a round of mini golf. We had a fabulous time. It was a nice course for a great price and the staff were professional and nice! Overall a nice family outing!

It was a beautiful day and wanted to take out family mini golfing. I had gone to Black Beards a few years ago just a few miles down the road but wasn't impressed. Didn't realize the two locations were so close until I found The Sports Arena. The kids wanted to go bowling and play video games but we stuck to our plan and had fun with mini golf. The 18 hole course was clean and well maintained. The price was great. A bit hot as it was in complete sunlight but nobody complained as we enjoyed the good weather. We'll be back on our next visit to the area because the boys certainly want to test out the video games and entertainment

If you are going to take your kids to the arcade, this is the place to go. Send them of with a loaded card and Mom and Dad can have a beer in peace or do a little bowling. This will be a regular stop when visiting Grandma in Maine!

This is definitely a great place for the Bangor area, however I was surprised that it was relatively dead on a Saturday night. Overall the building has a great atmosphere with 2 different bars, good bowling, arcade games, pool, air hockey, food, and TVs everywhere playing whatever sports on at the moment. It is a great place to go when you feel like doing something different with some friends or your family. Recommended!

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!
