Sykart Indoor Racing
What better way to settle a friendly family dispute, or find out who’s the secret daredevil in your group of friends, than a round of bumper cars? Sykart is an indoor bumper-car track where you can flex your stunt driving skills. Driving lessons on the track for kids ages 8 to 11 are also available. Learn more.
Splat Action Paintball
Oregon’s largest and longest-operating paintball park is located in Clackamas, just southeast of Portland. Rain or shine, this heavily forested 47-acre paintball park offers services like privately refereed games for groups, varied game structures and special events. Learn more.
Oaks Amusement Park
With rides, mini golf, riverside picnicking spots, paddleboard and kayak launch points and a beloved roller rink (offering outdoor skating during the pandemic), Oaks Amusement Park is one of the oldest amusement parks in the country. Originally opened to accompany the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition, Oaks Park offers a charming slice of history on the Willamette River. It’s accessible by bike path from the City of Portland, and Portland’s roller derby team, the Rose City Rollers, has bouts in season and events year-round at the Hangar next door. Learn more.
