Posted: 11/30/22

Brrr…Big Bear is cold in the winter. When you’re looking for things to do indoors and out of the elements, consider these ideas:

Big Bear Bowling Barn

The Bowling Barn is a great gathering space for large groups or parties. With 16 bowling lanes (and bumpers for the littles!), a snack bar full of goodies, an arcade, and sports bar for the grown-ups, this amusement center has something for everyone. At night, the lights go down and black lights come on. The music turns up and the place becomes a party! Friends and family can glow bowl every night, call ahead to confirm times and pricing.

Hollywood Studios at Santa Land

Write a letter to Santa at any time of year, get a picture with the jolly man himself, explore Santa Claus through the pop culture ages, and so much more at Santa Land in The Village.

Gold Rush Mining Adventures

Everyone can experience a ‘Eureka’ moment while cracking open a geode or mining for gemstones, fossils, or gold. No prospector goes home empty handed at Gold Rush Mining Adventures. Some minerals are large enough to have cut and faceted into a unique jewelry piece. The friendly miners on staff will help your family or group get the most out of your mining adventure.

Mountain Room Escapes

For all you puzzle solvers out there, imaginative escape rooms will get your mind working. You and your team will discover clues to escape your adventure before the time runs out. Perfect for 2-6 players.
