Overall, this was a good bowling alley because we had a really good time. There are a couple things that could be improved here though. It was really hot. Everyone was complaining about sweating the whole time. A couple times, we had some issues with the lane not working correctly (it seemed like everything just froze up). But other than... More

Bowling is a good family sport! Weekdays during the day are best. There is plenty of parking. It is very visible from Randall Rd.

I've bowled more often in the last year than I probably have in the last ten years. Brunswick offers nice lanes with a bevy of extras including good bar and activities for the kids including games and laser tag. I wish food was a little better b/c both kids and adults pick at it. Overall, a good bowling experience b/c... More

We bowl here once a month with our church on a league. Prior to bowling here without being on a league we found that it was difficult to get a lane, especially in the colder months, at the times that worked for us with a young child. While our daughter is not old enough to bowl with the league, we... More

First, go during a time where they have SPECIALS, get there a little before the start time of that special because the lines will get very long. Otherwise this place is way to pricey to just bowl a game or 2 with shoe rental and their hourly fees, it can cost you an arm and leg!! The place is very... More

Go here early or late, otherwise you may have a long wait. The lanes are clean, kid friendly, you get a server who will bring you food, drink or shoes or whatever. The arcade is fun. Watch for coupons as it is a little pricey.

My son and I enjoyed going for bowling. Lanes were in good shape. Food is not as good as it used to be. They used to have better appetizers.

We often get 'free' coupons for the Brunswick Zone, and have been there quite a few times. It's an amazing, bright, colorful, and fun place for family gatherings. You can do arcade, bowling, eating, and laser tag. Staff are friendly and professional, the facilty is well maintained. The only caveat I would give is that costs can escalate quickly if... More

My fiancé and I brought my two younger siblings in today. The power continually went out and we lost time that we payed for by it going out. Our server Melissa gave us 5 extra minutes after the first time it went out but then it went out multiple times after that therefore we lost even more time. She then... More
