With an All-Day Pass in hand, merrymakers can limitlessly enjoy Mel's Funway Park's go-karts, batting cages, mini golf, driving range, laser tag, and laser maze. Motor around Mel's go-kart track, which tests rubber-burners with tight turns and a bridge. David Ortiz admirers can emulate Big Papi in Mel's batting cages, featuring a replica of the Fenway Park's Green Monster and pitches from 45 to 85 mph. Golf gurus can tap orbs around two mini-golf courses, or sharpen their power-drive on the driving range. Show off your laser-firing accuracy or settle trading disputes with the Galactic Emperor Zorgo by dueling in the laser plex, where fog and black lights fill the futuristic arena. Mel's laser maze presents an electrifying challenge, as calm contortionists achieve victory by maneuvering around 36 beams of emerald light.

The captains at South Portland Sailing Center have a knack for sailing not only because of their licensure and training, but also because many of them have called a boat home at some point. They share the expertise they gained from living on and conquering the waters off the east coast with their clients, who can charter a variety of crafts including a gaff-rigged New England Cat and a full-keel cruising boat. After a relaxing ride or a lesson, members kick back at the clubhouse, a converted 48-foot wooden powerboat.
