Moose Alley hosts 10 state-of-the-art lanes complete with electronic scoring systems and bumpers upon request. It’s just $5 a person to play and shoe rentals are only $3. League bowling happens on Monday and Tuesday evenings in the fall, so if you’re dropping by at one of those times, it can be fun to watch the experts in action too! Moose Alley also has three 9-foot tournament edition pool tables on set as well as a 16-foot shuffleboard table and cornhole sets for added fun. Darts, air hockey, and foosball are also available in this area. If you’re dropping by with little ones, they might enjoy time in the sprawling arcade. When all of that fun has you looking to curb a craving or two, enjoy time at the Spirits Café Bar & Grill where menu options are available until 8:00 pm daily. The menu hosts everything from quesadillas and Reuben sandwiches to fried chicken salad and burgers just to name a few. Whether you go with the popcorn shrimp or the veggie pizza, visitors won’t want to leave without topping off their Halloween Moose Alley excursion with something sweet. Both the soft-serve ice cream and macaroons come highly recommended!
Sip a Cup of Coffee at The Rangeley Hideaway
