Great game to play to have a break from the sun. It's a little different to 10 pin bowling and they have heaps of different games you can play that can make it fairer for those not so good at hitting the pins! Good fun at $49/hour for the lane.

I am 11. I love sport so i really wanted to try bowling on my holiday. Firslty for a lane for 6 people it costs heaps of money and the atmosphere was bad. The staff were no help. The balls got stuck too much. 10 pin bowling is heaps better. I will never go back to that bowling alley!!

Dear Jack Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your bowling experience. This facility remains one of our most popular family and group activities on island so I am disappointed you did not enjoy your experience with us. Kegel bowling is very different to ten pin as you point out, with kegel having over 30 different interactive... More

Went with my girlfriend after a night out, and I think being a little drunk helped increase the fun :) The girl working there, Bianca, was one of the most friendly people I've ever met, and she was more than happy to indulge me with my strange tangents. Never have I walked out of a place feeling so happy, mainly... More

After a long day in the sun and waiting for our dinner reservation, we decided to give this a go. It was great fun and a different spin on the old regular bowling! Really helpful and genuinely lovely staff made for a great hour of laughs.

This was fun and entertaining. Not your usual bowling but a computer game with many different things to choose from. Would be great fun with a family group.

We'll what can i say.. Bowling is always fun in any forms. But 9 Pin Bowling?? not for starters i'm sure.. Spend all the time here fooling around with my mates, but not serious bowling. The place is great .. service is good, great energy in the alley.

Good entertainment but games were a bit confusing. I had expected a more normal 10 pin bowling arrangement but it was 9 pins and a large choice of computer games to choose what you bowled for
