In addition to a dozen pool tables where fierce, steady-handed competitors and casual players can knock cues, Shooters boasts 10 HDTVs, dartboards, and a full bar with a draft beer selection. Sporting spectators can belly up to the industrial-style bar and watch the game or Mixed Martial Solitaire tournament while tipping back a 16-ounce glass of Bud Light ($2.50), Newcastle ($4), Guinness ($4.50), or Blue Moon ($4). Otherwise, take your drink to the billiards area and test your sharksmanship in a game of pool on one of Shooters’ clean, well-maintained tables ($5 per hour per person, $20 per hour for unlimited players). Shooters stays open until the film-noir hours of night, so newbie players will have all night to finish their first game.

In 1880, Justin P. White created candlepin bowling because he felt that traditional bowling wasn't challenging enough. Today, Leda Lanes continues this East Coast tradition, where bowlers clutch softball-sized balls before sending them down the lane toward tall, thin pins. Though the game is a throwback, the staff keeps things modern with state-of-the-art scoring systems at each lane. A concession stand provides snacks, while Kegler's Den Lounge provides libations to keep bowlers going till the next string.

Maxamillians Billiards and Sports Bar allows cue gurus to battle it out in a 9,000-square-foot colorful-orb haven. With 14 regulation-size Connelly Ultimate tables, Maxamillians invites chalk jockeys to prove their angle-judging prowess or to illustrate the tricky tenets of Newton's 16th Law of Motion. Balls collide in a cavernous brick-lined room in the 9,000-square-foot bar, leaving plenty of room between tables. An 80-foot bar keeps throats wet, and the Boston Pizza Company dishes brick-oven pies to pool sharks.

Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, Chef Patrick Ogle crafts a menu of updated American favorites that pair perfectly with World Sports Grille's expansive selection of craft beers, bourbons, whiskies, and single-malt scotches. Burgers start with certified Angus beef, turkey, or chicken breast meat, and can be further customized with the diner's choice of toppings. Other examples of elevated pub fare include a Guinness-braised bratwurst, maple-glazed scallops, and rustic pizzas.

Even diners who aren't hungry can find fun at Worlds Sports Grille, however. The venue broadcasts professional sports games on numerous HD televisions, and fifteen billiards tables invite guests to show off their own competitive skills. A dart room, a shuffleboard area, and occasional live music will also keep the recently revamped space pulsing with energy, much like a snake with his tail caught in an electrical outlet.

Eight ball in the corner pocket. A pool player announcing this at The Wave Sports Pub could be talking about any of the 124 corner pockets on the bar's 31 Brunswick Gold Crown tables. These share space in the pub with ping-pong tables, dartboards, and large, flat-screen HD televisions that broadcast sports ranging from football and college basketball to races between dads to find the TV clickers buried in their couches.

Games can be scored to the dulcet tones of local bands performing, music from a digital satellite jukebox. During karaoke every Thursday–Saturday, guests belt tunes from more than 10,000 songs that are updated every month. In the middle of all that entertainment, bartenders supply beer by the bottle and tap while the culinary team crafts classic pub food such as fried-shrimp baskets, Angus beef sliders, and mozzarella sticks.

Squealing giggles and the buzzing of arcade games echo throughout the 10,000-square-foot Funtagious Fun Center, an indoor center filled with family-friendly attractions, voted “Best Family Fun Spot” by the Lowell Sun Poll. Underwater sea creatures, pirate treasure troves, and other deep sea features glow in Shankz, an indoor, black-light miniature golf course where golfers take aim at holes carved into pitch-black greens. The sound of toppling pins emanates from a quartet of miniature bowling lanes, where youngsters can roll strikes as easily as strongmen can squeeze butter out of a bundt cake. Guests can also square off in games of billiards, or at the "Balladium" ball blaster arena, the "Time Freak" time challenge arena, or take on classic arcade games such as skee-ball and air hockey.
