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.

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!

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.
