“Fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Location was ok, parking lot is dark at night but have security. Night bowling was fun for the family, with black light, music and small laser show for the kids.

If you have kids get lanes away from the smoky bar area (lanes between 1-20) Good arcade, and they even have a laser tag area. Great for family fun in the area.

“Bowling Arcade Laser Tag”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Our kids went for a birthday party. Good size arcade for the kids and they enjoyed the laser tag. Were not much into bowling they have 40 lanes and big screens at the ends of each lane. Kids enjoyed there time there. Only down fall it can get pretty smokey.

“Shoddy Lanes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This bowling center was a great disappointment. We were there for the youth state tournament and I was, quite honestly, embarrassed for the owner. The lanes delivered bad racks time after time and one lane even broke down. It was hot inside and two teams were put on a lane near a smoking area that we could smell, which made it uncomfortable. They offered to let the team move, but didn't allow them to practice on the new lane before restarting. They did nothing to compensate for the bad racks, which affected some scores, and were not at all hospitable or remorseful about their shoddy conditions. As a parent, I was frustrated. As a coaches wife, I was appalled. I will most assuredly avoid this house in the future.
