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

Had never heard of "9 Pin Bowling" before, we assumed it would be just like 10 pin but found it much more difficult than that! Still it was plenty of fun for the whole family, the facilities in the bowling alley were great and the service at the counter was fantastic. Another fun activity ticked off the list!

On the eve of our departure (with having had a near perfect beach holiday) we arrived late afternoon at the bowling to enquire what was required to be able to play. Trent advised that we would have to pay $45/hr and that we should come back later with closed shoes. So a couple of hours later we returned with closed... More

Our young boys (ages 5 & 7) really enjoyed the bowling as it was a bit different to normal 10 pin howling and gave them a good chance to compete against their parents. Plenty of different variations of the game kept their interest for an hour.

A great way to pass the time while it was bucketing outside, expensive but so is everything on the island. Its a mini, kiddy style bowling alley which was great even for the grown ups. You can book 1 hr or 2 hr sessions.
