We had a great experience at Bowlerama at the Bayfield Mall in Barrie. We had our grandchildren with us and they enjoyed themselves doing the five pin lanes as they have the bumpers on the lanes which helps motivate the kids as they aren't losing the ball in the gutter when they throw. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.... More

The glow in the dark bowling is lot's of fun and they play good music. The real downside are the washrooms..........Seriously needs new counters/faucets/mirror/floors and doors.

I've been here a number of times with family and friends. If you expecting something special in regards to food , forget it. Not complaining, its just your typical bowling alley food. However, for a great family time at reasonable prices and some munchies on the side its great. Can't think of anything serious to complain about, so enjoy your... More

The facility is great and offers great fun, but the price is very steep. Compared to other bowling alleys, you pay a hefty price here.

Went as a family of 4 on a Sunday morning when there was some special; otherwise with shoe rental, it could have been pricey. We played just 2 games. We are very novice so took the 5-pin lanes with the gutter-guards -- you can opt for them to be removed. There is 10-pin bowling, cosmic bowling during the disco hours,... More

Loved that kids are welcome! And that adults and kids parties are in separate areas. Would definitely go back.

We've been there a couple of times now and each time we've had a blast. Fun environment for all ages from a kids birthday party to teens hanging out at the games area, to couples, leagues and seniors...everyone's having a great time.
