Rainy day activities with Teenagers

Hi, never been to HH before, what are some rainy day activities to do with a 15-year-old? Thank you,

Hi @warrend, we are actually working on a blog about this topic! Here are a couple suggestions toward Teens! I would highly recommend if you are staying in the hocking hills booking a cabin that has a game room to keep the teens occupied in the comfort of your cabin! If you are just coming for a day trip here are a couple options!

Movies 10- located in Nelsonville- cheap movies and snacks! They have a fun barn which is an arcade attached to the movie theater! Great for all ages!


Bury The Axe
If you are looking for a fun indoor activity, Bury The Axe is an axe throwing range located inside the Hungry Buffalo restaurant. Enjoy some grub and have some fun. Staff help novice throwers reach their goals! Call or book online now!

Hop N Hocking Hills—more for young kids but they do have video gaming and virtual reality so teens might like it!
If you are looking for something for the kids to do indoors, check out Hop N Hocking Hills. Bounce houses, video gaming, and virtual reality offer open play & private party rentals. Use the $4 open play discount on the Hocking Hills discount card.

Hocking Hills Escape Room- I have never done this and I am not sure if it is open with Covid, but worth a shot!

Here are some shopping options!

Windchime Shop +
If you are out by The Caves and want to do a little shopping, stop by the Windchime Shop. This unique gift store has been in operation for over 30 years! Physically connected to the Christmas Treasure Shop and the Candle Shop, you’ll have plenty of selection to choose from. Please call for hours of operation as they do vary during each season.
