“Not too bad!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

It's a pretty fun place. It could use some cleaning though.

“Good choice for a youngsters birthday party”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

Took the 7 year old to a party here today though I had been to other ones. The staff was very helpful with the party to make it go well. No problems and I'd have a party for kids here any time. Party room in the back if you book it. Plenty of parking and easy to get to. One caution, the food service is mediacre at best. Fries good, OK hot dog, poor burger. This review is only to reflect a party for a group of young children around 7 years old. I haven't been here for other things they offer.

“Staff is rude”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2010

The staff is very rude and unprofessional at Venture Lanes. They refused to let my children and their friends use bumpers saying they were too old. My 12 year old daughter was using a 6 pound ball and the woman behind the counter came down and took it from her saying you have to be 5 years old to use a 6 pound ball. This woman ruined a good part of their fun. My children were attending a friends birthday party and were there to have fun. If you pay to bowl, I think you should have your choice of balls to use, and if you are very small like my daughter, a 6 pound ball is the best choice. Had I been there I would have demanded my money back.
